AIR CARGO IS MORE THAN JUST MOVING BOXES:
EVERY COMMODITY HAS ITS OWN SET OF RULES AND REQUIREMENTS
And you can be certain that Challenge Group is able to handle whatever cargo is entrusted to us. After all, Challenge Accepted is our company motto, and we thrive on finding innovative, efficient solutions for your shipments. Whether it is your Grand National champion, highly sensitive pharmaceuticals, urgent oil rig parts, or any other commodity that needs handling with care and expertise, Challenge Group has the training, the certifications, and the experience to take it off your hands and fly it to its destination.
65% of our business is non-standard cargo, so we are used to thinking outside the box in order to get that box shipped. We offer global door-to-door air transportation and freight logistics solutions.
Comprehensive, on-time transport and delivery are all part and parcel of the Challenge Group service.
From first mile to last mile and everything in between. E-commerce means expertly juggling a multitude of small parcels, an ever-increasing customer network, and heightened security measures, all within the smallest of time frames. Challenge Group covers the journey from start to finish in this fast-moving and rapidly growing industry.
HEAVY & OVERSIZE
Non-standard is Challenge Group’s routine: two thirds of our business is large and complex cargo.
Time is of the essence when it comes to AOG (aircraft-on-ground) shipments. Challenge Group’s time-critical, tailored, door-to-door solutions get your aircraft back into the air as quickly as possible, no matter if the replacement part is small and compact, or a large Trent 1000 or GE90 engine.
Oil & Gas
Heavy weight or oversize cargo? No problem: non-standard is our standard! When it comes to outsize cargo, (65% of all shipments we handle), Challenge Group has perfected the combination of fast, flexible, innovative solutions with state-of-the-art 3D load-chart technology, nose-door freighters, and the largest (52-tonne!) high loader in Europe.
Challenge Group (literally) drives your business! Whether an automotive plant is at a standstill for need of parts, or you are waiting for your new car, Challenge Group is the answer. We handle and ship all kinds of cargo for the automotive industry, from spare parts to vehicles, across our network, quickly, reliably, and safely.
Security, care, and discretion are core Challenge Group principles in the transport of premium fashion and high-tech brands.
Today’s world without high technology? From large-scale warehouse robotics to computer-aided design (CAD) and manufacturing machines, specialized pharma and medical precision instruments, all the way through to complex aerospace equipment; high technology products are often highly valuable and fragile, and require expert handling and transportation. Challenge Group has those experts.
Everyone loves fashion! So do we! And it is our mission at Challenge Group, to ensure that your favourite brands reach the shops without delay, straight from the factory. We offer efficient, reliable, tailored (pun intended!), multimodal solutions and ad-hoc charter services.
From pharmaceuticals to flowers and food, Challenge Group keeps everything fresh.
Agriculture & Food
Food and flowers are best enjoyed fresh! At Challenge Group, we pay the utmost attention to food safety, hygiene, and temperature management. Just like a chef garnishing a mouth-watering dish, we embellish our perishables logistics recipe, adding flourishes of perfection to safely transporting fish, meat, fruit, vegetables, and fresh flowers.
Logistics is a life-line, but only if carried out with care. The effectivity of vaccines and medication that to pharmacies and hospitals across the world, depends on safe, temperature-controlled, hygienic transportation.
