Rickmers-Linie to Deliver Airbus Fuselage

Friday, October 21, 2011

Rickmers-Linie, the Hamburg based operator of heavy lift and project liner services, has been selected by Spirit AeroSystems as its partner for the transportation of fuselage sections for Airbus from Morehead City, North Carolina (NC), to Montoir (Port of Nantes St. Nazaire) in Northern France.
The contract covers the transportation of fuselage sections and will run over a period of several years.  The fuselage sections are designed for the Airbus A350 XWB series.
After a trial shipment was carried out successfully earlier this year, the contract was signed in a small ceremony on 14 July 2011 in Hamburg.
“We are looking forward to this cooperation with Spirit,” said Gerhard Janssen, Director Marketing & Sales at Rickmers-Linie. “We are proud to become part of the supply chain for Spirit in its deliveries to Airbus. This contract shows once again that our liner concept for heavy lifts and project cargoes with regular schedules and reliable service is sought after by our customers.”
