We have handled close to 50 shipments from August to October 2009, with most of the cargo going by airfreight with total volume up to approximately 150,000 kgs. This was a record in our history for the most amount of airfreight volume shipped for a single project.
One of the interesting shipments was two units of Seawater pumps which was handled on ex-works Savannah and flown out from New York airport to Jeddah. Due to its long length, special attention was given to handling of the crates.
Another case was handling a diesel generator from Shanghai to Dubai. The generator set has to be air freighted to Dubai airport due to its classification as DGR goods and lack of direct freighter service to Jeddah. From Dubai, our agent took custody of the cargo and delivered by truck all the way to jobsite at Saudi Arabia.
When the Air Won’t Do, the Land Must Go Through
Over the course of our services, we have handled close to 50 shipments between August to October 2009. Most of the cargo were delivered via airfreight with a total volume of approximately 150,000kgs. This was a record for the most airfreight volume shipped in a single project for us!
Out of the many, one shipment was a rather interesting one. Two units of Seawater pumps which was handled on ex-works Savannah and flown out from New York to Jedah, had extreme length. Due to this nature, special attention needed to be given when handling the crates.
On another occasion, we had to handle a diesel generator from Shanghai to Dubai, due to its classification as DGR goods and lack of a direct freight service to Jeddah. As such, our on-site agent arranged for truck delivery from Dubai all the way to the job site.
