heavy lift cargo case study


A resort in Alaska was in a dire situation. Their operation learned that their Chairlift Bull Wheel needed to be replaced. Without the Bull Wheel and other important parts their season would be a disaster. They were faced with two large problems. One was that winter was fast approaching and the second was the pieces were over 10,000 pounds.

They called Alaska Air Forwarding and we jumped into action. We found a flatbed truck to take the pieces from Canada into Chicago. We then flew the freight into Anchorage and then trucked it out of Anchorage to the resort to meet the install team. The timing was perfect and the resort was up and running to service customers at the start of the season.
