Globalia members join forces to carry out the shipment of a brand new Montblanc store in downtown London

The cargo which was shipped from China to the UK included interior furniture such as high-end display tables with fragile glass, mirrors, lights and other accessories

AMA Freight Co. Ltd, Globalia member in Tianjin, China, cooperated with Oceanside Logistics Limited, Globalia member in Felixstowe and Southampton, UK, to ship a very special cargo.

As stated by Jade Zhang, Head of the Overseas Department of AMA Freight, “Due to limited space and truck requirements in London, the shipment of 24 cases of 7.2 MT and 50 CBM had to be delivered in seven lots in a specific order so that the engineers could do the installation as planned. Additionally, due to the location of the shop, special permissions were needed for trucks to get into this commercial area. A strong logistical planning was required to guarantee customer satisfaction as well as flawless movement, loading, and unloading of the trucks. All the works were executed perfectly and the waste disposal was also taken care of by our two teams.”

The furniture was shipped in three lots. AMA Freight shipped the first lot by sea from Shanghai to Southampton port from where the shipment was taken over by Oceanside Logistics and stored in their warehouse. The second shipment was moved by rail from Zhengzhou to Hamburg which saved the supplier plenty of money compared to air freight and plenty of time compared to ocean freight. The 3rd shipment was by air from PVG, Shanghai, to LHR, London, from where it was carried to Oceanside’s warehouse after the clearance.

“The Montblanc shop was very satisfied with the service offered by both Oceanside Logistics and us. Their Manager was impressed by our professionalism and the care taken by us to manage this special project,” says Jade Zhang.

Congratulations to AMA Freight and Oceanside Logistics for successfully handling this collaboration shipment!

Globalia Tianjin moves a project cargo with a volume of up to 160 CBM per piece from Shanghai to the Middle East

The cargo primarily consisted of several over-sized and heavy-lift rotary kilns and supporting equipment

Earlier this year, AMA Freight moved a project cargo of several over-sized and heavy-lift rotary kilns and supporting equipment from the port of Shanghai to the Middle East.

Ama_Freight_TianjinThe loading and unloading of the cargo demanded special monitoring mainly because of its enormous size.

Every single piece of this bulk cargo had a volume of up to 160 CBM, with dimensions of 6, 5×6, 5×4 m and weighed over 27 tons each. The full volume was split into 7 shipments amounting to a total of 400,000 tons and 14,000 CBM.

The bulk cargo specialists of AMA Freight planned and organized the entire transportation in advance so as to ensure smooth handling of the bulk cargo. The loading and transportation of the cargo to the vessels were monitored in person by AMA’s staff to guarantee proper control throughout the whole process.

“Our years of experience along with our professional expertise are the two factors which allowed us to successfully handle this bulk shipment. I’d request my fellow members to get in touch with us for any break bulk shipment requirement they might have,” says Julian Wolff, the General Manager Sales and Marketing of AMA Freight Co. Ltd.

Congratulations to Globalia Tianjin for a job well done!
