To quote Ms. Vivian Trujillo, the Sales Manager of North Carga SAS, “One of the most challenging aspects of this shipment was having the cargo ready for the same arrival date as the motor ship. This is because if the motor ship waits and the cargo arrives late, then, it results in delays at the origin with the shipping line. Therefore, we had to ensure loading this enormous volume of cargo on the motor ship on time.”

“Moreover, we had to take special care not to miss the departure since it was a re-embarkation and the demurrage rate was 17,500 USD. By not missing the departure, our team managed to avoid delays, apprehension, and sanction,” continues Mr. Trujillo.

Congratulations to Globalia Bogota for successfully pulling off this difficult shipment!
