Logistics service provider for the Taipei Universiade

Globalia Taipei acted as the Logistics Management Centre for the 29th Summer Universiade 

Apollo Logistics was chosen as the Official Logistics Service Provider for the 29th Summer Universiade, an international multi sports event organized by the International University Sports Federation (FISU) which is staged every two years in a different city. In 2017, this prestigious sporting event, which is second only to the Olympic Games, was hosted by Taipei.

Apollo Logistics was in charge of customs clearance and re-export service for the delegates and the organizers. They had to deliver the packages and other game related items and make special arrangements for the delivery of the poles and javelins.

As the Official Logistics Service Provider, Apollo Logistics even had to transport the 2017 Universiade’s Mascot – Bravo for an overseas event in New York and then ship it back to Taiwan. Their services included packing, pickup, delivery, unpacking and the return of the shipments.

We heartily congratulate the team of Apollo Logistics for their mind blowing accomplishment and wish them the very best for the years ahead! 

Glb Taipei delivers an extremely fragile taichi sculpture

Globalia Taipei establishes itself as a first-rate artwork deliverer after successfully transporting a Taichi sculpture

Apollo Logistics has recently transferred a 2.5 meters high Taichi Sculpture from Beijing to Taipei. The 2.5 meter high sculpture was made entirely out of glass fibre making it an extremely fragile item to deliver.

The Taichi Sculpture which was exhibited at the Beijing University during the 2008 Olympiade was sent as a gift to the National Taiwan Normal University in May, this year. In the words of Richard Yeh, Globalia Taipei’s General Manager “Proper positioning of the sculpture was one of the major challenges we faced in this case. Being a highly fragile artwork it demanded totally accurate, safe and efficient handling which our team has accomplished with perfection.”

Here’s to Apollo Logistics for their brilliant feat!

“This is a value-added service we offer our customers who don’t operate their own warehouse facilities, and who choose to use our 3PL D.G handling services as a distribution arm of their own operations” says Paul Petrovski, Managing Director.

However, this is not an easy task that just any agent can handle, it requires professionalism and especially attentive service. “We need to follow strict guidelines for labelling and documentation in accordance with Australian and international standards. Regulatory audits are conducted on a quarterly basis to ensure compliance across all of our designated categories”, Paul Petrovski adds.

PCFS hold stock on a daily basis for their customers, one such stock being pool chlorine. Held as overflow for their client’s warehouse, the chlorine is class 5.1 and packaged in 10kg pails, at approximately 78 – 80 pails per pallet. An especially large volume of the product is stored coming into spring/summer, as you might expect.
