Olympic Handling’s Rapid Response

Olympic Handling’s Rapid Response

Sometimes air freight is the only way to move goods, especially urgent outsized parts.

» Aviation - UK | Tuesday, December 20, 2011 • Air News Times
Olympic Handling at Athens International Airport showed their speed and flexibility last week when they successfully managed a B747-400 freighter from EL AL.

Konstantinos Koutras, Olympic’s Cargo import supervisor outlines how the team handled this.

“The shipment was in two parts.  The first, consisting of long components were on 20ft and 30ft pallets.  These were urgently needed for a large multi million Euro electric power project in Megalopolis in the Peloponnese area.  First we had to get cooperation from AIA to allow two trucks with cranes to enter the airside area.  By using this equipment our dedicated team was able to speed up the unloading. We also brought in some special equipment such as a transporter (trepel), and some racks for quick unloading.  We used 3 forklifts for the smaller, lighter pieces. The flight arrived at 20.30 on December 10 and the freight was delivered on time on site at 7am the next morning.

The other shipment was straightforward general cargo for a local agent. We felt pleased with the result and the client certainly was. I can say with complete conviction that there is no kind of freight that we cannot handle at Athens.”

“Cargo traffic at Athens is slowly recovering but it will take at least another year to get back to where we were” states Lina Palli of cargo development for Athens International Airport. “Our reputation for fast and efficient handling and on the ground processing is helping us to claw back our traffic.”
