Project Cargo Case Study: Delivery of 194 Aircrafts to 85 Indian Air Force Locations

We recently completed a large-scale logistical project for the Indian Ministry of Defence, delivering 194 airplanes directly from the Pipistrel factory to various Indian airfields. The scope of this project ranged from metropolitan regions like Chennai, Mumbai, New Delhi, and Mundra to more remote and challenging locations like Andaman and Nicobar islands, and even some areas within the rugged terrain of the Himalayas.

The Execution

  • Door-to-door deliveries, even in geographically challenging regions
  • Overcame lack of regular shipping lines in remote locations by chartering vessels
  • Employed innovative methods for areas lacking paved roads
  • Airplanes delivered in containers for local assembly

The Outcome

Successfully executing this contract underlined our logistical proficiency and adaptability, particularly given the wide range of delivery locations spread all across India, each with its unique set of challenges. Sanjay Thapar, former Wing Commander and current CEO of Skytec, conveyed in an article featured on, “Winning the contract in a tough competitive environment was easy for Pipistrel as they offered the best product at the lowest price.

Delivery of press valves to India

In this blog series we are looking at interesting cargos that we have shipped in recent past. Our aim is to make processes in the logistics industry much clearer and show you how our deliveries work behind the scenes.

In our latest delivery, we picked up press valves that were made in Hungary.

We transported them from the local factory to the port of Koper. Here we loaded them on containers, which traveled on a cargo ship to the destination in India.

Press valves comes in various types including butterfly, angle, check, gate, and globe valves for domestic hot and cold water, HVAC and process water applications.

Delivery of mining trucks to Serbia

Since we want to be as close as possible to our clients and partners, we have decided to show you more of our work in this blog series. We have selected some interesting deliveries which we will present to you and hopefully demystify the processes in the logistics industry.

The first delivery we will talk about will be the mining trucks that came to port of Koper from China. Haul trucks are a type of special truck that you most certainly won’t encounter on a standard road. You can find them on large construction sites, mines, or quarries. The world’s largest haul truck BelAZ 75710 was made in Belarus and it is capable of carrying 496 short tons of cargo. With a little luck, one day we’ll make a shipment of BelAZ 75710 too.

This delivery of mining trucks was off to Serbia, where they will serve in a local coal mine.

Farewell, impressive machines!
