CMA CGM Ibérica achieves another milestone by loading a helicopter on board in record time
CMA CGM Ibérica loaded for the first time a helicopter on board one of its vessels operating in the MEDCAR service, specifically the MARY with voyage nº 0DV7RS1MA. The journey, with a transit time of 30 days, began on 20/12/2020 from the Port of Valencia (ESVLC) to San Antonio, Chile (CLSAI), after transhipping in Cartagena, Colombia (COCTG). The helicopter, a KAMOV Ka-32A11BC fire-fighting model, was loaded on board in record time, two and a half days. Every hour has been crucial and necessary to carry
out all customs formalities, terminal and office equipment coordination for operations that usually take between two and three weeks due to the complications involved in shipments of these characteristics.
In this sense, we would like to thank Grupo Alonso and the customers at origin and destination for placing their trust in CMA CGM Group and in our professionalism, as well as the Customer Care, Operations and Project Cargo teams of CMA CGM Ibérica, the CSP terminal team at Valencia Port and Control System Survey, SL for the supervision at all times. We hope this to be the first of many shipments of these characteristics. Without a doubt, it is a historic milestone for CMA CGM Ibérica.
