Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance, guys.
Kalitta Air is currently flying ORD-ANC-China on all three of those routes. I just spent the last three weeks bouncing around on them. PVG has some "creative" passport, security and document ideas and I would avoid flying into or out of the PRC via that city. Every member of my crew had something confiscated by customs there that we have carried in our luggage around the world for years. On another flight passing through I got over two hours in the special customs area because they needed paperwork that according to our handler no other airport in China requires. They also make our loadmasters and mechanics leave the plane with the incoming crew and then wait in the terminal for the out bound crew (even if it is 5 or more hours) before allowing them to return to the aircraft.

Get a hold of K4 and see what kind of documents you need and give us a try. I love having the chance to offer some hospitality.

I am catching a ride this week from ORD to ANC. Could someone PM me the address of the warehouse and a possible POC? Thanks.

ANC Ops. 6200 Boeing Ave. Go west on Northern Lights, left turn on Boeing Ave. Almost immediately there will be a large parking area on the right. There is a building on the west edge of that parking area with a DHL and Atlas sign on it. Go in the door in the middle of that building, there will be a second door with a buzzer. Crew usually is there about an hour+45 prior to departure.

This is 100% FALSE and actually inconsistent with any published manual!

It's an imaginary rule the majors (including fedex and ups) comply with while the rest of the (sane) world doesn't.
