Door-to-door delivery for 50 sports cars on one Boeing 747-8
What do you do when asked to move 50 cars door to door from Hiroshima, Japan, to Milan – all by air, all in one go? You build the largest flying garage! A global auto company was introducing a new sports car to Europe, and cars had to be flown from Japan to Milan on one plane: a Boeing 747-8. Agility designed double-stack racks to fit 50 cars in one plane. For comparison, usually one to five cars are shipped at a time. Agility also prepped the cars for flight by transporting them 900 km from the factory to Narita airport. Once the cars arrived in Milan, Agility trucked them to showrooms in six European countries.
After a tsunami struck Japan in 2011, the country faced a serious electricity shortage. A major beverage company was faced with the choice of shuttering its operations during summer, when electricity consumption spikes and service can be inconsistent, or finding an alternate source of power. However, getting a generator large enough to power factory operations was a challenge. Agility stepped in to assist, chartering the largest cargo aircraft to transport an oversized generator. Agility picked up the generator from a factory in Germany and transported it to Japan during a limited time frame. It was delivered safely and installed quickly, ensuring that factory operations went uninterrupted.
