Impacting change for the greater good; transporting a delicate consignment for a UK charity
- Supporting the work of a light aircraft charity who deliver aid around the world
- Handling and transporting a consignment with the utmost care and precision
- Working in partnership with suppliers to provide a service free of charge to the charity
Going above and beyond for a client is a common value that connects each member of the Priority Freight team. When MAF (Mission Aviation Fellowship) came to Priority Freight to transport a dissembled light aircraft from the Midlands to Perth, Scotland, the teams’ value shone through. The aircraft will be used by the charity at a range of events throughout Scotland to publicise the work of MAF.
MAF operates 135 light aircraft in 26 of the most disadvantaged countries in the developing world. In 2016 they flew more than 43,000 hours and 65,000 flights to carry 178,000 passengers and 6-million kilograms of aid and materials to those in need.
Priority Freight provided specialised care and precision in handling the fragile consignment. With good weather onside, the cargo was transported without complications by a 40-foot articulated curtain-sided truck, arriving 14 hours after setting off from the Midlands.
On arrival at Perth Airport, aircraft engineering students from the University of the Highlands and Islands were involved in the unloading of the cargo, who will then reassemble and prepare the aircraft for use as an impressive static display.
Appreciating the impact of what the charity do annually and the importance of this consignment, Priority Freight completed the job free of charge as a charitable donation. MAF expressed their positive feedback, praising the team for a job well done.
