Experience

Aeronet is skilled in handling multiple types of high-value and sensitive capital equipment cargo, including semiconductor manufacturing and testing equipment, high-tech laboratory machinery, medical equipment (such as CT scanners and X-ray machines), standalone or multi-component machines, large equipment moves of various dimensions, and we’ve also handled moves for manufacturing plants relocating or expanding. Specifically, Aeronet has experience:

  • Handling a Nikon Stepper (very sensitive, high-value semiconductor equipment) airfreight shipment, from the U.K. to the U.S. Temperature and humidity levels had to be managed from door pickup to door delivery.
  • Using an exclusive air ride truck to move a defective inspection system, from France to the U.K., in less than 24 hours. Diligent wrapping, dust prevention, and restraints saved the client thousands of dollars in packing and crating.
  • Moving 54 crates of photovoltaics manufacturing equipment for solar cells, in 7’ x 40’ high cube ocean containers, from Germany to the U.S.

End-to-End Customized Solutions

As with other types of project cargo, moving capital equipment requires the utmost planning. Aeronet will develop a strategy for you based on the unique aspects of origin and destination. We consider risk mitigation, move-out and move-in procedures, sourcing heavy forklifts and cranes, and whether Customs clearance is needed.
