Transport of en H125 hélicopter between France and Santiago de Chile

Puteaux. 17 November 2022

Bolloré Logistics has successfully completed the end-to-end delivery of an H125 helicopter from France to Santiago de Chile between October 6 and 14, 2022. The legendary squirrel is 11 meters. It is a versatile device suitable for business transport, medical evacuation, or urban and road surveillance.

The operation was carried out on behalf of Ecocopter (a rotorcraft operator based in Chile). The pick-up service from Marseille, the air transport service and delivery to Chile, the final destination, have been set up by the Bolloré Logistics teams.

The operation was made possible thanks to the synergies existing between the local teams in France and in Santiago de Chile. The pick-up in France took place on October 6, the cargo was then prepared and then delivered to the airline so that the helicopter could be transported to Chile on October 13. The helicopter arrived safely at Santiago de Chile airport the following day. The Bolloré Logistics teams on site unloaded the cargo and ensured final delivery the same day.

An out of gauge operation of this type, with dimensions of 600x245x290 meters, required the use of specialized machinery such as a forklift, with great control and care in the handling of the merchandise, as well as a lowboy truck for the transport of heavy merchandise.

Bolloré Logistics is a renowned expert in helicopter logistics, with over 50 years' experience of moving helicopters around the world, and manages the entire supply chain of many helicopters on a daily basis
