Case Study: AOG Abnormal Load Delivery for an Aircraft Manufacturer 

25th June 2024 | by Sam Nardi

Speedy Freight Swindon has become a trusted partner for a world-leading provider of commercial aircraft, engines, and airframe components, offering dependable logistics solutions to meet their complex needs. 


The Client 


Our client is a globally renowned company specialising in the production and maintenance of commercial aircraft, engines, and airframe components. With a reputation for excellence and innovation, they require a logistics partner who can handle their unique and often urgent transportation requirements. 


The Consignment 


Our Speedy Freight Swindon branch was tasked with transporting a large and vital aircraft part. The consignment consisted of a 335cm x 335cm x 200cm crate, containing a crucial component for one of their aircraft. Given the size of the item, this was classified as an abnormal load, requiring a movement order. 


The Solution 


The transportation of abnormal loads, such as large aircraft parts, presents unique challenges. These consignments require careful planning, specialised vehicles, and adherence to strict regulations. Speedy Freight's expertise in handling such loads, including Aircraft on Ground (AOG) parts and aeroplane wheels, ensures that even the most challenging deliveries are completed seamlessly. 

To meet the client's needs, Speedy Freight provided dedicated direct UK transport with our abnormal load delivery service. Recognising the special requirements of this shipment, we arranged the necessary movement order to ensure smooth and compliant transportation. Our team managed every detail, ensuring the consignment was delivered safely and on time. 

The client's feedback speaks volumes about our service: "We have been using Speedy Freight Swindon for our shipments for quite some time, and they have consistently provided top-notch service. Recently, we needed to move an 'abnormal load', and they have once again been able to do this for us with true professionalism and made the entire process super simple and easy! We will continue to use Speedy for our 'abnormal load' shipments and other standard shipments also!" 

Since our initial delivery for our client, we’ve arranged weekly deliveries of a range of aircraft parts, including airplane wheels and time-sensitive AOG parts. 

Our team’s can-do attitude paired with our expertise allows us to quickly adapt to our client’s changing requirements, while our 24/7 availability ensures we’re always ready for any delivery that comes our way, no matter how complex.
