In the words of Mr. Luiz Gustavo Avesani Moura, the CEO of LAC Worldwide “Perhaps the greatest challenge of this project was to obtain the special containers during this ongoing equipment shortage. Furthermore, we had to ensure the space for various equipment of this type with the shipowner. Lastly, the numerous blank sailings at the port of Buenos Aires led to a huge accumulation of cargo at the point of origin. In spite of all these challenges, our team stood up to the occasion and ensured the seamless transportation of the cargo.”

I would like to congratulate my entire team and especially our project director Felipe Sellera who impeccably handled every aspect of this complicated project,” adds Mr. Moura.

“Moving the shipment proved to be a demanding task due to the enormity of the volume as well as reduced flights during the pandemic. Our team’s expertise in handling cold chain shipments was an important factor in the successful handling of the project since we were required to move over 10 tons of PCR kits which are highly perishable with a shelf life of just 4-5 days.” states Mr. Luiz Gustavo Avesani Moura the CEO of LAC Worldwide.

The Miami team of LAC Worldwide helped with several tasks including the adjustment and checking of packages, arrangement of transit documents, temperature control, photographic reports, and customs clearance. Mr. Moura further adds, “I would like to thank our LAC heroes who are working 24/7 to meet the demands of our customers with 100% success. We intend to ship over 30 tons of PPEs and testing kits in the coming month.”

Congratulations to LAC Worldwide Brazil and USA for this commendable job and wishing them all the best for their upcoming projects!
