The smooth transport of the temperature-sensitive cargo was made possible by the company’s expertise in cold chain shipping
LAC Worldwide Brazil & USA, Globalia member in Sao Paolo and Itajai, Brazil, and Miami, USA, shipped 45 tons of PPE, rapid testing kits, and PCR Kits to Brazil for the testing of the presence of the virus among the population. Their air cargo department worked relentlessly to ensure the seamless transport of this cargo from Hong Kong and Guangzhou to several cities of Brazil.
“Moving the shipment proved to be a demanding task due to the enormity of the volume as well as reduced flights during the pandemic. Our team’s expertise in handling cold chain shipments was an important factor in the successful handling of the project since we were required to move over 10 tons of PCR kits which are highly perishable with a shelf life of just 4-5 days.” states Mr. Luiz Gustavo Avesani Moura the CEO of LAC Worldwide.
The Miami team of LAC Worldwide helped with several tasks including the adjustment and checking of packages, arrangement of transit documents, temperature control, photographic reports, and customs clearance. Mr. Moura further adds, “I would like to thank our LAC heroes who are working 24/7 to meet the demands of our customers with 100% success. We intend to ship over 30 tons of PPEs and testing kits in the coming month.”
Congratulations to LAC Worldwide Brazil and USA for this commendable job and wishing them all the best for their upcoming projects!

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!
