Australia’s High Compliance Transport and Logistics Service Provider
We provide time critical, high security and high compliance services.
Road Feeder Services
Our main service offering is Road feeder Services (RFS) for major airlines, express carriers, cargo handlers and freight forwarders. We are approved and certified under the Accredited Air Cargo Agent (AACA) scheme with the Australian Government and provide fully compliant Customs bonded transport solutions as well as short term storage to meet pickup and delivery requirements of our clients.
Our modern fleet provides high certainty of service delivery and the highest productivity in air cargo available in Australia. Our trailers include our SkyMax units which can carry four (4) Q7 main deck pallets plus one (1) Q6 main deck pallet. That’s five units in a single trailer airport to airport without the need for stopping.
RFS can be provided in combination with our temperature control and oversize services providing optimised time performance and flexibility to move cargo as loose or within the ULDs.
All Road Feeder Services can be provided with our SkyIQ eTMS messaging which provides seamless Flight Status Updates (FSU) over email portals or via the SITA network.
Temperature Controlled Services
The majority of our fleet offers temperature control for standard loose cargo or as Unit Load Devices (ULD) using roller bed curtain sided trailers. Our fleet is exclusively equipped with latest standard Thermo-King units providing both heating and cooling as well as temperature data downloads. Thermo-King supports our fleet with 24/7 breakdown services and scheduled maintenance including calibration and testing of equipment.
Our fleet can support pharmaceutical and life sciences movements where the movement protocols are agreed and planned beforehand.
In short, there is no need to choose how and when your cargo is dispatched, we offer the fully integrated solution for air cargo customers.
Only Skyroad provides this combination of equipment capabilities
Hazardous and Restricted Cargo
Skyroad is certified to IATA hazardous cargo requirements. All staff are trained and certified with operations managers extensively trained and qualified in all compliance areas.
Our senior management team holds over 50 years in hazardous cargo transport and supply chain, including bulk explosives and restricted defence and weapons movements. Hence Skyroad offers services in high explosives and restricted weapons where required.
Aerospace Gas Turbines – Jet Engines – Aircraft MRO Materials
No one knows engines better than Skyroad. Our team comes from the aviation industry so business as usual applies to everything we do.
Our entire fleet is built to comply with standards for movement of gas turbine engines. All trucks and trailers are on premium air ride suspensions with all trailers using the industry leading BPW equipment with dampers fitted at every wheel location. Our core RFS fleet is able to transport many wide body engines within curtain sided security and protection (CF6 requires oil tank removal).
Our staff hold FAA A&P licences and all engines are loaded to standards and procedures approved by the customer or per our standard procedures. Chains, straps and load restraint are all verified per engine manufacturer requirements and staff are trained and supervised to understand cradles, engine features, and prohibited practices.
All engine movements include photographic surveys of loading to ensure compliance is proven to the customer and engine owner.
AOG and Hotshot Services
Aircraft On Ground (AOG) is in our DNA. It may not just be an engine, it could be CAO materials like Lithium Batteries, all of which Skyroad can deliver urgently to any major station in our network with full compliance and safety.
We have achieved a 100% success rate for AOG delivery on-time performance. In 2017 this included engine and engine change kit deliveries to AYQ, ASP, PER, BNE and SYD as well as making freighter connections outbound from SYD and MEL.
“Skyroad knows what AOG means. If you have an AOG engine movement you don’t need to explain to us that every possible thing needs to be done to arrive quickly with the cargo intact and safe. It’s business as usual for Skyroad.”
Skyroad has established extensive experience combining oversize movements with the critical demands of air cargo customers. Our East Coast to Perth services have more than doubled in the last two years with our ability to move items that only freighter aircraft can bring to Australia. Long, wide, heavy, we can do it all.
Our unique SkyMax trailers provide a critical advantage to the market – items normally oversize and requiring restricted times of travel can be transported on standard express schedules since our trailers provide over 16 metres internal length. That’s the difference customers appreciate. On time, on schedule, despite being oversize to most operators.
