Emirates SkyCargo transported the first Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series to arrive in Australia.

Emirates’ Cargo Manager Australia, Greg Johnson, said he was honoured Mercedes-Benz chose to entrust Emirates SkyCargo to carry the AUD$245,000 vehicle – the first of 32 coming to Australia - and has no doubt a reputation for excellence in every area of operation played a part.

“While we have the capacity to transport 103 tonnes of cargo a week on the new Boeing 777 Freighter, we take pride in making sure each and every customer receives the attention to detail they require,” Mr Johnson said.

“Moving the high-value Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series required sophisticated equipment and specialist handling to ensure it was race-ready once it hit the tarmac in Australia.”

“Across our seamless network between Europe, Dubai and Australia, Emirates staff are well trained and highly experienced in dealing with high-value consignments, ensuring this very special car enjoyed a smooth ride,” he added.

The Boeing 777 Freighter features include a wide main deck cargo door, making it ideal for uplifting oversized shipments like the Mercedes-Benz C 63 AMG Coupe Black Series.

This weekly dedicated freighter service was first operated to Australia in September 2011, and boosts Emirates SkyCargo’s import capacity to 1370 tonnes per week.

With long-range flying capacity and technologically advanced General Electric engines, the Boeing 777F provides piece of mind for transporters of precious cargo, while maintaining the lowest fuel burn of any comparably-sized aircraft.
