AeroRide™ – Priority Ground Logistics

Not all the oversized aircraft parts need an entire flatbed trailer, yet few fit into a standard box truck. Until now. Find out how Sterling's new AeroRide™ fleet of trucks gives you the fast, secure and cost-effective ground transportation you've been looking for to get your plane back in the air.

You lose money every minute a plane is grounded. And just because the parts you need are oversized, doesn’t make them any less critical. Traditionally that meant transporting them using more expensive and less secure flatbed trucks or struggling to get an appropriate vehicle at a moment’s notice.

That’s why Sterling, the leader in aviation logistics, created its specialized AeroRide™ Priority Ground Logistics service. Our new custom-built and aviation-focused team straight trucks give you the expedited, safe and affordable shipping options you need for flaps, slats, nose cowls, engines, engine inlets and other valuable, delicate oversized parts. Our end-to-end logistics provides direct drive of your assets with no consolidation, ensuring security and chain of custody. 

Our innovative trucks have 22’ long, 102” wide boxes with two curtain sides for easier and safer loading of extremely large, heavy parts. Each truck is equipped with AirRideControl™, a unique vibration monitoring system that ensures the AirRide functionality is working properly at all times. As a result, these aviation-focused trucks meet the Department of Defense and military specifications required for shipping critical components, which means your parts are moved in the safest environment available for ground transportation today.

Sterling’s AeroRide solution offers the industry’s fastest response and delivery times combined with unparalleled security and asset protection, since components are inside the covered truck from pick up through delivery.
