Aircraft Engine Transportation

 

IMT’s knowledge of various engine types and sizes enables us to identify and work with the characteristics of each jet engine shipment. The result is safe and secure transport of the aircraft engine with minimal loading time and maximum attention to detail. Aircraft engine transportation and aircraft component logistics is a specialized task that requires years of experience and knowledge of the critical nature of the cargo.

 

IMT has successfully completed over 12,000 aircraft engine shipments to all corners of North America. We have developed a proprietary Standard Operating Procedure  based on OEM securement guidelines, along with our own requirements developed over decades of aircraft engine transportation experience. IMT drivers must complete our Aircraft Engine Handling Course which comprises of three modules:

 

  1. Classroom theory and training
  2. Field training – drivers must complete the jet engine loading and securement procedure under supervision
  3. Final exam – drivers must score 100% on the exam to pass the course

 

Fitted tarps and protective padding delivers maximum protection against weather and road debris. This end-to-end care, plus our in-depth knowledge of load securement procedures, means your serviceable engines can be put into use immediately after transportation.

 

There are numerous risks involved with aircraft engine transportation and aircraft component logistics. Aircraft engines are subject to extreme tolerances and regulations. IMT eliminates the risk of damage by using state-of-the-art protective equipment and load securement knowledge that can only come from decades of experience with high-value shipments.

 

Aircraft Component Transportation and Logistics

Our familiarity with aircraft components such as landing gear, reverse thrusters, wing components, ground support equipment, etc enables IMT to provide handling and load securement procedures specific to each type of component. The result is complete care of all aircraft parts from pick-up to delivery.

 

IMT’s just-in-time delivery service ensures that your aircraft parts and components will meet narrow maintenance windows. In addition, we have extensive experience loading and securing in-flight training equipment and will deliver them on time to comply with training schedules.
