Aeroscraft Corporation are working together to establish a strategic
partnership supporting global project logistics. Aeros and Bertling have signed a memorandum of understanding to evaluate the costs, benefits, and structure for various business relationships including a potential joint-venture.

The two leaders are now exploring potential capabilities and future project implementation of Aeroscraft’s fleet of new rigid-hulled cargo aircraft. Bertling believes the Aeroscraft could be a breakthrough approach to addressing serious logistical problems of the 21st century.

  • Offer Aeroscraft logistics service access to partners and clients in project development
  • Take advantage of priority availability of the Aeroscraft service

“In the ever-evolving world of global logistics, any innovative approach implies new business horizons resulting in more challenging but rewarding projects,” explains Konstantin Vekshin, Vice President of Air Freight Charters at Bertling Logistics in Houston. “In today’s extremely competitive environment, any cutting edge solution means growing and sustainable business, and the Aeroscraft could be a breakthrough approach in addressing some of the most complicated and demanding logistics projects commensurate with the realities of the 21st Century.”
