In early 2019, Aeronet Los Angeles was tasked by its client with moving a shipment of steppers – sensitive semiconductor equipment – door-to-door, from Scotland to East Syracuse, New York. The temperature of the shipment had to be maintained between 18-22° C relative humidity, from pickup to delivery.

In early 2019, Aeronet Los Angeles was tasked by its client with moving a shipment of steppers – sensitive semiconductor equipment – door-to-door, from Scotland to East Syracuse, New York. The temperature of the shipment had to be maintained between 18-22° C relative humidity, from pickup to delivery.

Aeronet provided an exclusive air-ride climate-controlled truck from Scotland to Amsterdam Airport. While at the airport, our local agent processed export clearance while the freight remained on the truck. From there, the freight was transported on a direct temperature-controlled flight to JFK Airport in New York.

While the shipment was still in the air, Aeronet completed the U.S. Customs clearance process, and had an air-ride climate-controlled truck standing by at JFK. This gave us the ability to recover the cargo as soon as it came off the flight, and deliver directly to East Syracuse.

Aeronet’s packing/rigging team (who had already completed a site survey of the destination) took control of the freight upon the truck’s arrival. They uncrated the shipment, and moved it into the facility with specialized forklifts, floor protection, and air (floating) pallets to minimize vibration. Aeronet also provided the client with temperature reports – records made ever since the cargo was picked up from its original origin in Scotland.
