It is expected that exploration of the field will commence the coming years.

RBG Oil and Gas is offering oil and gas operations along with a wide range of marine and offshore services to support their exploration, development and production requirements. In the words of Gilles Verlé, Sales & Marketing Manager, of Royal Burger Group, “The Port of Beira is a perfect Gateway Port for Central African countries such as Zambia, Malawi, Zimbabwe and Southern part of DRC Congo; it is also referred to as “The Beira Corridor”. We are already using this trade lane for handling raw tobacco leaf shipments originating out of these countries.”
Mr Gilles Verlé has further added: “Our oil and gas services include- vessel supply, solid and liquid waste management and staff training. We ensure that the highest standards of quality and safety are maintained in our operations which would enable us to offer all sorts of tailor-made solutions for any offshore demands of our clients.”
RBG Africa Logistics and Burger Logistics are presently collaborating with many Globalia members. As Mr. Gilles Verlé says, “In 2017 we received in total 31 quote inquiries from various Globalia members around the globe and have also sent out quite a few to various Globalia members from our side.”

Tesla will redefine the future of trucking with their new electric semi-truck

The production of this long awaited transport would start 2019 onwards

The Tesla Semi with its battery technology will give you superior acceleration, enhanced performance on steep terrains, an 805 Km range with maximum weight at highway speed and loads of other fascinating features. Elon Musk the CEO and founder of Tesla has stated at the unveiling event in Los Angeles that these trucks when driven in convoy is going to cost less than transporting goods by railways.

The semi-truck is packed with loads of safety features including lane tracking ability, auto braking and a windshield which is apparently ‘nuclear explosion proof’! Chucking a huge diesel powered engine has enabled them to push forward the driver’s seat allowing a much spacious cab for the truck drivers. As advertised by Tesla- “Semi is the safest, most comfortable truck ever. Four independent motors provide maximum power and acceleration and require the lowest energy cost per mile.”

Musk went on in greater details about the safety measures of the new Semi- ““Even if you’re in the truck and you have a medical emergency, the truck will stay in lane and gradually come to a halt and put on the emergencies. If it doesn’t hear a response from you it will actually call emergency services and get an ambulance. It is going to take care of you. It is going to take care of other cars. It is going to take care of pedestrians.’’

The Tesla Semi can be charged to 400 miles range within just half an hour. With a max gross vehicle weight of 80,000 lbs., the Semi is believed to bring about a massive change in the freight forwarding industry.

Globalia Dubai manages the shipment of a red line metro project valued in $3.5 billion

The project consists of the extension of 14km of Dubai Metro and is expected to be completed by January 2020 

Cargotrans Global Forwarding, Globalia Dubai, is now working on a red line Dubai metro project, in cooperation with Acciona, Gulermak and Alstom, which is worth a whopping $3.5 billion. The project which is expected to be completed by January 2020 consists of a 14 km extension of the Dubai Metro Red Line which would involve the construction of both subterranean as well as suspended bridges.

The project started last July when Cargotrans Global Forwarding delivered 46 containers from Europe to Jebel Ali, a port town around 35 Km from Dubai. In order to handle this shipment, they had used dry container, flat rack, open top or as break bulk with container dimensions ranging from 40 HC, 20 FR, 40FR, 40 OT or 40 Platform.

Additionally, they employed HL, MAERSK, CGM and CMA carriers depending on the transit time and availability of equipment and offered a lashing and securing service, as they do in most of the cargoes.

“One of our major challenges is the timely delivery of the material, and prevention of any unforeseen delay such as vessel transhipment, booking rolled over and the likes. Last July we had to manage the packing of 55 T of cargoes and had to transport it by air from Italy to Dubai within just 4 days so as to receive the entire cargo within 6 days after the pickup from the supplier” states Alexis Danelian, Cargotrans Global Forwarding manager.

Three cheers for Cargotrans Global for landing up with this high profile project.

New Globalia Forwarder Network accepts only top flight operators – SHIPPING GAZETTE

The Conqueror Freight Network has set up the ‘Globalia Logistics Network”, which will be open exclusively to “first class” freight forwarders in each air and seaport location. Applicants for Globalia will undergo a rigorous selection process including external auditing. The one in 10 applicants accepted will enjoy six months’ membership for free, reports London’s Air Cargo News.

 Globalia founder Antonio Torres explained the importance of networks for independent forwarders: “With the multinationals taking more and more of their business daily, independent forwarders find themselves in a cooperate or die situation which rogue network operators are exploiting.

“In the last decade, the majority of the emerging networks have only been interested in one thing; collecting a membership fee. None offer the rigorous selection process we do, none offer the financial security we do and none offer the daily support and amount of quality complimentary marketing tools we do.

“Some might say that what we are launching is not new, and they would be right. We are offering the same opportunities as Conqueror but for a new group of first class companies, allowing them to work with the same calibre of agents as themselves worldwide.”
