Globalia member in Brazilian cities Itajai & Sao Paulo successfully transports 8,000 tons of organic corn

The shipment which was loaded at the Port of Santos, Sao Paulo, Brazil, was shipped all the way to the Port of Baltimore, USA

LAC Worldwide do Brasil Transportes Internacionais S/A, Globalia member in Itajai and Sao Paulo, Brazil, hauls a large cargo shipment consisting of 8,000 tons of organic corn from Sao Paulo to Baltimore, USA. “This has been a rather significant project for our team, considering the sheer size of the cargo. We were required to ship 8,000 tons of corn within 5 weeks and obtaining the space on vessels within a very tight schedule had been a rather demanding task,” says Luiz Gustavo Avesani Moura, CEO of LAC Worldwide.

Apart from providing complete logistics services of transporting the grains to the destination which is 1,200 km from the port, the company was also in charge of customs clearance, obtaining all the certifications required for the shipment of organic items and controlling the flow of trucks. One of the biggest challenges faces by them was the proper management of logistics without incurring extra costs with regard to storage or detention while complying with all the cutoffs and regulations for shipments of organic products.

The LAC Worldwide CEO adds, “We were also in charge of other complex cargoes such as boat/yacht shipments, break bulk and huge RORO shipments of heavy vehicles and much more. However, I found this shipment to be worth sharing with our network members primarily due to the complex nature of services provided in the current port situation in Brazil.”

Congratulations to LAC Worldwide for a job well done!

An insider’s view on the importance of LCL shipments in Egypt by Globalia member in Cairo

Dispatch Global Logistics is now offering stable LCL services from several ports in Asia

According to Dispatch Global Logistics, our Globalia member in Cairo, Egypt, the price for an FCL shipment generally comes with a lower quote as long as the minimum volume level is met. However, customers which have a less than container (LCL) shipping load will not be able to make the most of the lowered rate. This is precisely why they need to move their cargo through LCL options which would enable them to pay just for the space their cargo is taking up, rather than the weight. Moreover, shippers would also be able to pick and drop their cargo right from the warehouse.

Additionally, LCL shipments are very important in the Egyptian market since most of the importers in Egypt are applying for on spot system as opposed to on stock since it is the most suitable way to deal with a decrease in demand.

For all these reasons, Dispatch Global Logistics which started their LCL service 6 years ago, offers a stable and direct service from Shanghai & Qingdao which covers northern China, Hong Kong covering southern China, and Australia & New Zealand, in addition to their direct console from Mumbai.

What differentiates our member in Cairo from their competitors is the fact that they are operating their own warehouses Egyptian main ports, which allows them to discharge their boxes within less than 48 hours. As stated by Nermeen Said, Overseas Manager of Dispatch Global Logistics: “Since it is not a private warehouse located outside the port, we don’t need to apply transit procedures which can be expensive both in terms of time and money.”

Dispatch Global Logistics is focussing on LCL services for 2 major reasons. Firstly, it is the best option for small shipments because of the cost saving factor as compared to airfreight services. Secondly, LCL shipments allow for a reasonable transit time as compared to sea freight services. It is also ideal for the small importers who are looking forward to starting their business in a specific sector.

Nermeen Said further adds that, “as a normal expansion in our services, we are focusing on developing our traffic from the major European ports such as Hamburg, Rotterdam, Antwerp, Genoa, & Istanbul. It will be great to develop this traffic together with our Globalia partners.”

 

Globalia Tianjin moves a project cargo with a volume of up to 160 CBM per piece from Shanghai to the Middle East

The cargo primarily consisted of several over-sized and heavy-lift rotary kilns and supporting equipment

Earlier this year, AMA Freight moved a project cargo of several over-sized and heavy-lift rotary kilns and supporting equipment from the port of Shanghai to the Middle East.

Ama_Freight_TianjinThe loading and unloading of the cargo demanded special monitoring mainly because of its enormous size.

Every single piece of this bulk cargo had a volume of up to 160 CBM, with dimensions of 6, 5×6, 5×4 m and weighed over 27 tons each. The full volume was split into 7 shipments amounting to a total of 400,000 tons and 14,000 CBM.

The bulk cargo specialists of AMA Freight planned and organized the entire transportation in advance so as to ensure smooth handling of the bulk cargo. The loading and transportation of the cargo to the vessels were monitored in person by AMA’s staff to guarantee proper control throughout the whole process.

“Our years of experience along with our professional expertise are the two factors which allowed us to successfully handle this bulk shipment. I’d request my fellow members to get in touch with us for any break bulk shipment requirement they might have,” says Julian Wolff, the General Manager Sales and Marketing of AMA Freight Co. Ltd.
