Shipment to Russia (part 2)

The shipment of the hardware from the satellite developer’s home country to Delft in the Netherlands being considered part 1 of the whole shipment-adventure with final destination Yasny Launch Base in Russia, part 2 got underway this weekend with shipment of all CubeSat related hardware from Delft to the Czech Republic.

The QuadPacks, (already protectively) accommodating the CubeSats, were packed in sturdy transportation cases. Together with some cases containing GSE hardware, they were picked up by our Dutch forwarding agent and placed in a dedicated transport-vehicle, which will directly transport them to the dedicated airport in the Czech Republic.

There all hardware will be loaded on a chartered airplane, which will fly to Ul’yanosvk in Russia (part 3), where Russian customs clearance will take place.
