The transport of a fully assembled, highly fragile Cabin Emergency Trainer unit was never going to be easy. All the way from Felixstowe, UK, to the Viet Jet facility in Ho Chi Minh. But we were more than ready to take up the challenge for our client EDM, the world’s leading supplier of training simulators to the civil aviation and defence markets.


The 15,500kgs high value training unit, measuring approximately 16.36 x 4.15 x 3.02 metres, was carefully loaded ready for shipment at Felixstowe requiring multiple precision lifts for this delicate cargo.

Phase one of the transportation was the shipment to port Vung Tau in Vietnam. This was followed by the second phase of the project which included the careful unloading and on-carriage to the Viet Jet facility in the city of Ho Chi Minh, assisted by our partners The Freight Co Ltd.

The high value and delicate nature of the cargo required detailed planning for the precision load, unload and on-carriage move to its final destination.

Our customs clearance planning ensured the smooth transition from ship to forward carriage, all completed within a tight deadline to avoid any port waiting charges.

“Following the negotiation and subsequent purchase order raised for the project, EDM found the process easy and with piece of mind. EDM was kept informed at all stages of the process including photos of the loading and unloading at both ports & site.

The final arrival and positioning of the goods within the new training facility in Vietnam was done in accordance to our SOW requirements and within budget. In total, a seamless and first class achievement by Allseas Global Logistics”
