Back Aircraft on Ground Logistics - Aerospace Ground Logistics

Sterling’s AeroRide™ Priority Ground service is a fast, secure and affordable ground transport for oversized aircraft parts. It offers a variety of features and benefits to ensure your shipments arrive on time and in perfect condition.

When your Aircraft on Ground (AOG) shipments are too big for a standard box truck but don’t need an entire flatbed, there is Sterling’s AeroRide™ Priority Ground service. Our custom-built fleet of straight trucks offers expedited, safe and affordable ground transport for your flaps, slats, nose cowls, engines, engine inlets and other valuable or fragile oversized aircraft parts.

Each truck is equipped with AirRide Control™, a vibration monitoring system that ensures AeroRide™ is functioning correctly. These aviation-focused trucks meet the most stringent Department of Defense and military specifications for moving critical components.
