Netfrate, the top Transatlantic volume logistics provider to Russia, announced today that it has arranged for the trucking, packaging, survey and ocean transport of an MD Explorer® from the Port of Houston to St. Petersburg, Russia with on-carriage to Siberia (Novokuznetsk).

The 32,000-pound helicopter was trucked from MD Helicopters Inc., located in Mesa, Arizona, on a 48-foot stepdeck trailer using Silk Road Transport to the Port of Houston where it was placed into a 456” long x 104” wide x 159” high custom-built crate. The helicopter blades were packaged separately and the shipment was loaded onto a Roll-on/Roll-off vessel which will be arriving in St. Petersburg on April 29th to clear Customs.

“Using St. Petersburg as a transshipment hub versus Vladivostok shaves 1700 km off of the transit, saving a lot of time and avoiding the roads in Siberia which can be of poor quality in some places,” said Pavel Trubetskoy, Netfrate’s CEO. “What’s more, Russian Customs is in the process of requiring cargo arriving in Russia to clear at the first port of entry, which can be a challenge for importers located in remote regions such as Siberia.”

Netfrate also arranged for all risk insurance for this move. The MD Explorer® is ideally suited for rapid role change from an Offshore/Onshore eight-place passenger transport to Emergency Medical Services or Law Enforcement missions. A heavy-duty cargo hook permits 3,000-pound (1360-KG) external load operations.

About Siberia

Siberia is the vast region constituting almost all of Northern Asia and for the most part currently serving as the massive central and eastern portion of the Russian Federation, having served in the same capacity previously for the USSR from its beginning, and the Russian Empire beginning in the 16th century.

It makes up about 77% of Russia’s territory (13.1 million square kilometres), but only 25% of Russia’s population (36 million people). It includes a large part of the Eurasian Steppe and extends eastward from the Ural Mountains to the watershed between Pacific and Arctic drainage basins, and southward from the Arctic Ocean to the hills of north-central Kazakhstan and the national borders of both Mongolia and China.
