Our Asia Global members Bright Lines Cargo Ltd of Sofia, Bulgaria, and Daf & Co Logistics In Genoa, Italy have partnered together to deal with a very demanding job.
The shipment consisted of two military shipments, destined to Rades port in Tunisia and Cartagena, Colombia.
After checking all options, it was decided to ship from Genoa port and the first leg to be done by road from Sofia to Genoa.
The initial concern was obtaining permission by the Italian authorities to move military equipment through Italy, but this was something that Marco Schimenti at Daf handled promptly and without issue.
Bright Lines arranged to load 155 tons, 629M3 at the suppliers premises in Bulgaria and the trucks then proceeded to Genoa without problems on the way.
On arrival at Genova port, Daf unloaded the goods from the trucks and held in its warehouse while the relevant documents were processed for customs clearance.
The goods were then stuffed into the export containers and ultimately loaded on the export vessels bound Colombia and Tunisia.
These shipments were successfully done and met the customer’s expected deadlines including full FTL to FCL
The deadlines were met despite the existing problems of unpredictable liner pricing, unsure space and equipment availability.
Tanya at Bright Lines has expressed her great satisfaction of the performance and professional approach of Marco and Daf and this shipment has created not only a working relationship, but a friendship. Both partners have worked together professionally and ethically which is what our Network is all about!
