Airschott INC ships unmanned aircraft

AIRSCHOTT INC, a member of The COOP in Washington DC, has on numerous occasions in recent years, shipped ‘The Zephyr’, a solar powered unmanned aircraft worth a whopping US$2,000,000 from the UK to remote military test sites in the USA and back again


The shipping of such important and sophisticated technology is not something given to just any freight forwarder – AIRSCHOTT INC. was the perfect choice as the handling of such sensitive shipments has been the hallmark of their activities since the company was founded in 1977.

The team chose to use for the most part, POLAR AIR and HAPAG LLOYD loading the Zephyr onto airline pallets or onto 40′ flat racks with ground support equipment stuffed into 20 and 40 dry boxes.

In addition, the team arranged packing, crating and HAZMAT packing/certification and loading of containers/flat racks, much of which was done in remote desert or mountain sites.

The COOP would like to congratulate AIRSCHOTT INC. on a job well done and invite members with shipments in Washington DC, to get in touch with the team.
