July 2019, Martin Bencher Airfreight handled an airfreight delivery to Greenland. Due to the urgent time of delivery, Martin Bencher Airfreight offered Onboard Courier service.
Cargo was transported from Denmark to Qaanaaq – the second most northern city in the world with a total population of 656 people.
The reason for cargo being shipped as OBC was that the cut-off time was too short for the airline to load onto its 1 per week flight to Qaanaaq. Therefore, Martin Bencher’s only option was travelling with the cargo as luggage, why our Operations Manager from Copenhagen travelled a total of six flights in 23 hours.
