October 25 – The newest cargo terminal of Dubai based cargo handler dnata, FreightGate-8 at Dubai World Central-Al Maktoum International Airport (DWC), has reported an increase in air cargo volumes of 700 percent for the 2011-12 financial year.

In addition to large volumes of ‘standard’ air cargo shipments, dnata said it is increasingly handling unique heavy lift exports that require careful planning and specialised handling equipment.

One of the most recent highlights included a purpose-built gas turbine being flown to Nigeria. With a total weight of 95 tonnes, it was the heaviest single piece of cargo ever handled by any of the dnata FreightGate cargo terminals and ramp teams.

In response to the growing volume, dnata has steadily been increasing and improving its fleet of equipment to help handle heavy lift the outsized loads, including a specially fabricated airport dolly that can handle cargo that is up to 40 feet in length. More info
