    Announcement of the 4th Annual Global Meeting Of The Project Logistics Alliance

    After a period of analyzation and balancing the conditions given we are proud to announce the time and location of the 4th Annual Global Meeting of the Project Logistics Alliance. Next year, we will be hosting the Annual Meeting from October 11 – 14, 2020, in one of the world’s most progressive cities, Tallinn, the capital of Estonia.
    Tallinn is often referred to as the Silicon Valley of the Baltic Sea and ranked in the top 10 of digital cities in the world. It is Europe’s best place for entrepreneurs and the birthplace of many successful companies in the IT industry, such as Skype and Transferwise. In 2007, Tallinn’s residents were the world’s first to have elections on the internet. Today, Tallinn has become the main IT center of many European companies. Amongst others, it is home to the NATO’s Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence and the IT Agency of the European Union.

    In contrast to rumors during this year’s Annual Meeting, we are not sticking to the pattern of a different continent each year. We are choosing our locations for meeting not considering them as tourist destinations a combination of aspects in a business content in favor of the network community like e.g. good international accessibility (Tallinn has direct flights from all major airports in Europe such as London, Paris, Munich, and Moscow just to name a few).
    Safety and low entry barriers are further aspects we are considering. Most importantly, we choose places of relevance to current topics in our industry and Tallinn Sea Port is the major port for cargo movements in and out of the former soviet union countries and central Asia.

    The technological development in the logistics industry makes Tallinn the perfect place for the next Annual Meeting of the Project Logistics Alliance. We will be witnessing a lot of fascinating and inspiring technologies throughout the event, encouraging us to think forward and be one step ahead of the rest.

    SAVE THE DATE! We are looking forward to hosting an incredible Annual Meeting 2020.

    See you in Tallinn!

    Alexander Global Logistics Charters Antonov-124 for Milling Machines

    Alexander Global Logistics, member of the Project Logistics Alliance for Germany and Russia, was recently awarded the transportation of 3 precision milling machines to the USA.

    Each machine was dismantled and stowed into 6 custom-built crates, which were modified for air transport. The base of the machine, even after dismantling, had outside dimensions of 536x264x324 cm and a weight of 14.3 MT. In order to deliver within the deadline and to cater to the dimensions, the only feasible solution was to charter an AN-124, the second largest civil aircraft in the world.

    Together with the professionals at Volga DNPR, the crates were adjusted to allow for handling with the Antonov's own gantry crane. Considering the preparations and adjustments in advance, delivery was performed with a minimum of 6 trucks from Konrad Allgaier GmbH. The cargo was delivered onto the trucks in loading sequence and transferred right into the aircraft, avoiding additional ground moves with external cranes and forklifts. The entire shipment had a weight of 90 tons and was close to the maximum weight allowed for uplift from airport Stuttgart to perform the leg to Phoenix, AZ with only two technical stops in between.

    The loading operations started at 1 am in the morning and thanks to the perfect coordination, everything was finalized after 7 hours of hard work, and the AN-124 took off as scheduled. After arrival in Phoenix, AZ on Saturday at noon, the local professionals from Alexander Global Logistics GmbH coordinated the delivery with the end-user and rigging team. Unloading was performed in opposite sequence of loading, again with the Antonov's own gantry crane right onto the trucks waiting in line for delivery. All ground operations were completed after 6 hours and the cargo was delivered on-site without any problems or delays.

    Congratulations to the AGL team for the successful move!
