Kopf+ Lubben GMBH handles the transportation of a self propelled passenger stair from Moscow to Hamburg

The Coop member in Bremen, Hamburg and Frankfurt, won this interesting project from the manufacturer of staircases in Germany

A self-propelled passenger staircase had to undergo maintenance service with a German manufacturer within the shortest possible span of time since it had technical issues during the Saudi Arabian King’s state visit to Russia. The airfreight team of Kopf + Lübben Cargo Services was in charge of this sensitive project. The colossal escalator arrived on Sunday night from Moscow on an IL-76 freighter at Hamburg airport and required special handling off the main airfield

Kopf + Lübben Cargo Services were also ordered to do the handling after maintenance had been done and successfully re-loaded the staircase after a couple of weeks. The same type of aircraft was booked to pick up the staircase in Hamburg and flew it out to Saudi Arabia.

The highly experienced airfreight team of Kopf + Lübben Cargo Services successfully discharged the staircase, arranged for customs procedures and transported the cargo to the plant. In the words of Tobias Teichmann, Manager Airfreight of Kopf & Lübben, “We made use of a special ramp to unload the elevator very carefully with the right precision down to the final millimetre. The staircase was delivered to the plant within a couple of days and maintenance work started shortly after the landing in Hamburg, thanks to the excellent job of our team members.”

The Coop congratulates Kopf & Lübben for their outstanding achievement!
