Globalia Piraeus moves a colossal cargo of 243,000 Kg from Greece to Romania

The cargo which consisted of pumps and generators were moved in 11 FTL’s and 5 special trucks

Feroniki SA International Shipping and Forwarding, the Globalia member in Piraeus, Greece, has recently handled a cargo of 243,000 Kg of pumps and generators. The shipment which was moved from Athens, Greece, to Braila, Romania, was required to be moved by low bed trailers for which they had to obtain a special license due to weight limitations.

Moving this enormous cargo was a rather exigent task since they had to organize 16 trucks and tilt trailers for loading the cargo on time. Moreover, each of the pump or generator needed 1.5 hours to load so the entire task had to be managed in a time efficient manner. “The difficult part was that the 16 trucks were from 5 different trucking companies and we had to pay meticulous attention to the schedule so as to avoid paying for extra hours and delays. This complicated shipment was handled with 100% success, the credit for which goes to the diligence of our entire team.” says Mr. Nikos Liberopoulos the Sales Manager of Feroniki SA.

Congratulations to Feroniki SA for handling this important shipment!
