Good Afternoon Gents,

 

It has occured to me that I'm bored out of my mind. So, I would like to propose a challenge. Noting the distinct lack of cargo carriers here on AE, and my particular love for cargo flying a pilot, this is my proposal.

 

I want to see what the people of AE can come up with. My only rules are that they cannot be Cargo divisions of passenger airlines, IE, you won't see Poletavia Cargo or something similar here. You may only submit one brand. Other than those two, there are no rules. It can be from any country and have any fleet, with any specification. 

 

Want to be a sketchy outfit flying Embraer 120s at night? That's fine with me! Just make it look good. Want to be the AE version of Fedex? That's fine as well. 

 

Give those freighter templates some love. Contest will end this Friday, March 27th at midnight, Central Standard Time. 

 

Points will be awarded for originality, brand cohesiveness, and overall appeal. Post your completed brand here for judging.

 

Good luck.

 

EDIT: I know existing brands when I see them, it must be something new ;) Additionally, you may only submit one brand.

Carrier Express | Jersey, Channel Islands
 
 
Carrier Express, named after the "Carrier Pigeon" which delivers messages or small parcel, is a freight airline operating a small fleet of ATR-72-200s with ULD (Large Cargo Door) conversions. With headquarters in Jersey, Carrier operates scheduled flights from the Channel Islands to destinations in the United Kingdom and a few other European airports. 
 
It was founded in 1977 following the purchase of 2 used converted pure freighter HS-748s, with the intent to provide fast post and shipment deliveries from Mainland U.K to Jersey and Guernsey, cutting down the time required from nearly 10 hours to just over 1. Carrier was later awarded a dedicated contract to deliver post from and to the United Kingdom in 1982. The airline operated a variety of aircraft over the years, including cargo SC.7 Skyvans, ATP freighters, and SAAB 340AFs, however never operating jet-powered aircraft mostly due to the short runway limitations present at the Channel Islands, despite multiple runway lengthening projects over the second half of the century.
 
The name was shortened on aircraft to "Carrier" after a undergoing rebranding in 2002, which included a new livery in anticipation of the arrival of their new ATR-72-200s with the ULD modification. Today, Carrier Express flies the 5 ATR-72 ULDs, 3 being the original -200s and the rest being newer -500 series aircraft. The airline has proven to provide a crucial connection, especially for high-priority freight, and is planning to replace older aircraft in the coming years, however the successor is yet to be decided.

Great idea!

 

If this is a success, I can see this being a recurring theme during the quarantine period (so that we don't all become crazy haha)

 

 

Cheetah Air Cargo|Gaborone, Botswana

 

Cheetah Air Cargo was formed in the late 1990s to cover the need for express cargo delivery in southern Africa, with its main base being in Gaborone. The cheetah name and image was chosen both because it is a common sight in Botswana's savannah, and because of its speed. It has since been a mainstay in fast, on demand delivery all across the region.

 

The airline operates some old but reliable 727-100 originally put into service in the early 1960s by german Deutsche Hanseatic.

 

The 727's high performances, its ability to operate from poorly prepared runways with a gravel kit installed, and its overall simplicity make it the perfect aircraft for the task!

Камчатско-Амурский воздушный мост | Kamchatka-Amur Air Bridge | Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, Russia

 

 

Kamchatka-Amur Air Bridge is a small Russian cargo carrier headquartered at Yelizovo Airport in Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, with a maintenance center at Khabarovsk Novy Airport. Founded in 1968 with the purpose of connecting Kamchatka with the rest of Russia in a more reliable way, the airline now specializes in the transport of heavy cargo from from across Russia to the Far East. A large portion of its profit comes from its chartering and leasing sector of the company, being considered a cheaper and mostly reliable source when it comes to the leasing of cargo aircraft specializing in carrying heavy freight along with smaller aircraft in the Far East and Central Asia. The airline has run into financial troubles in the past few years though, mainly caused by the disappearance of an AN-124 over the Bering Strait in 2015. Similar to Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, the whereabouts of the aircraft or its wreckage is yet to be found.

Nippon World Cargo currently operates 43 aircraft, which are 737-800BCFs, 767F and CRJ-200F which are going to be retired next year, and used to operate the iconic 747-200, but they were retired earlier due to the lower package quantity for the aircraft size, so they became unprofitable. The airline is a contractor which is mainly used by important Japanese companies, including Mitsubishi Motors and Toyota. The airline is well know for its fast and quality service, providing a good customer service.

Mariner World Airlines|Seattle, WA, Washington

 

Mariner World Airlines is an international all-cargo airline based in the United States. Its headquarters are on the grounds of Seattle–Tacoma International Airport in Seattle.
 
Mariner World Airlines was founded on October 16, 1946, as Mariner & Western Airlines. It initially operated Douglas DC-4 aircraft, followed by Lockheed Super Constellation airliners. It adopted the name Mariner World Airlines in March 1961. Jet cargo service started in 1964 with the introduction of the Douglas DC-8.
 
The airline played a prominent role in the Vietnam War during the late 1960s, using Douglas DC-8-63 jets to connect McChord Air Force Base, Washington with Cam Ranh Bay, Vietnam. In 1968, one of these flights operating as Mariner World Airlines Flight 133A was forced to land in the Soviet Union with 214 American troops on board. On 27 April 1969, a Mariner World Airlines DC-8 (Flight 277) with 219 passengers and 13 crewmembers landed by mistake at Marble Mountain Air Facility, when it had actually been cleared to land at the nearby Da Nang Air Base. After fuel and passengers were offloaded, the plane was towed to the north overrun and departed six hours after the landing incident.
 
Mariner World was the first airline to fly a 747 Freighter service from the USA to the UK.
 
In 2017, it was the world's largest airline in terms of freight tons flown and the world's seventh largest in terms of fleet size. It is a subsidiary of Mariner World Corporation, delivering packages and freight to more than 345 destinations in nearly every country each day.
 
Its headquarters are in Seattle with its global "WorldHub" located at Seattle–Tacoma International Airport. In the United States, Mariner World has a national hub at Ontario International Airport. Regional hubs are located at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, Oakland International Airport, Newark Liberty International Airport, San Francisco International Airport, Piedmont Triad International Airport, and Miami International Airport. International regional hubs are located at Hong Kong International Airport, Kansai International Airport, Vancouver International Airport, and Cologne Bonn Airport.

IATA: AL ICAO: AML Callsign: Amerilog

 

Amerilog - American Logistics Inc

American Logistics is a logistics company based out of Chicago with a large contract based shipping network using their fleet of 737's 757's and 767's. They operate mostly inside of North America out of their main HQ in Rockford and two hubs in Detroit and Kansas City holding contracts to move parts with General Motors. The airline is well known for operating aircraft like the DC-6 and DC-8 until 2006 when the aircraft were completely replaced with 757's and 737's.

Founding 1970-1985

The Company founded its routes in early 1970 when Carl Renal, Mark Renal and Dave Capello started Renal Air Cargo International. The airline grew to operating 16 DC-8's and five DC-6's while also holding a contract with the U.S. Government and General Motors to use their Detroit hub to move car parts to their various factories. At the start of 1984 Carl Renal, The Chief Pilot and CEO of the airline was killed in a air crash after a Renal Air Cargo DC-8 Crashed outside of Kansas city on a night flight. The crash killed all crew on board and the investigation largely found the accident to be Carl's fault the airline fell into a hard time. In 1985 Mark Renal sold his part of the company leaving Dave Capello in control of the company

American Logistics Era - 1985- Present

Dave Capello after fully taking over the company changed its name to American Logistics Inc. Rebranding the fleet of trucks and aircraft into Amerilog branding schemes. He also started up a separate part of the company offering charter flights with a former Northern 737-200. He kept moving the airline more into the jet era. By 2000 the airline was operating a mostly jet fleet leaving only three DC-6 aircraft for charter cargo flights. Today Amerilog operates into most major American Cities and holds three contracts with various manufacturers and still holds two 737-400 aircraft for charter operations. 

 

Let me know if I need to add anything else!

Friendly Air Freight Federation

 

Russian air cargo carrier, Friendly Air Freight Federation, is based in Belarus for legal reasons but is owned by one of Russia's more prominent oligarchs. It was founded sometime shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union. It claims to specialize in charter operations for specialty equipment and bulk shipments, however American and European watchdogs have repeatedly charged the group with crimes ranging from arms smuggling to sanction busting. Due to these alleged violations, FAFF isn't usually seen in the EU or North America, but it is quite prolific in Africa, South America, and the rest of Eurasia, much to the chagrin of Western aviation enthusiasts who enjoy both the eclectic colour scheme and unintentionally comedic name of the air carrier. FAFF operates a rapidly aging fleet of 2 Tu-154Ms, 5 Il-76s, 7 Il-86s, and 13 Il-96-400s in various states of repair. 

 

Do let me know where there's room for improvement - I guess this is a competition but I'm only getting started and I'd love feedback. Cheers.
