The mining equipment was hauled from India for a mining project at Zimbabwe
ABS Logistics, Globalia member in Panipat, India, hauled a number of mining equipment from Nhava Sheva, India, to Beira Port, Mozambique. “This project was challenging as it was time critical and we had to complete the movement from shipper site to Beira within a stipulated time period. We were given 4 days time to move the cargo from the shipper site to loading on the vessel, while generally, it takes 7-8 days for doing the same,” says Mr. Abhinav Jain, Director of ABS Logistics.
They used CMA CGM Shipping Line for moving this equipment and special low bed trailers were required for transportation of the cargo. Mr. Jain further added, “This project was successful thanks to the diligence of our team, who handled it without a hitch”.

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!
