Stella Shipping was assisted by IGM Logistics for the movement of the cargo

Stella Shipping PTY Ltd, a Coop member in Durban, South Africa, recently carried out a collaboration shipment with IGM Logistics Malaysia- a Coop member in Port Klang, Malaysia. Together the two companies moved a boat for a water sports resort from Kota Kinabalu to Zanzibar, Tanzania.

“The shipment was a challenging one primarily because of the urgency. However, right from the start, the services of the IGM team were great with quick replies and prompt updates even on a Malaysian public holiday. We want to thank the IGM team for making this shipment a success and for being our eyes and ears on the ground in Malaysia.” Says Byron Vather, Sales Manager of Stella Shipping.

IGM Logistics Malaysia assisted Stella Shipping with the collection of the boat, delivery of the flat rack and helped them in strapping the boat securely to the flat rack. The cargo was moved from the shipper premises to the port by trucks and a special truck with a heavy lift crane was used to load the flat rack with the boat to the truck for transportation.

Congratulations to both the Coop members for such a successful work!
