E2E Supply Chain Management partners with Atlas Forwarding Ltd for a complex OOG air-cargo project

The shipment which consisted of a high-value dining set worth 500,000 Euros was shipped from Europe to Singapore

E2E Supply Chain Management PTE LTD, a Coop member in Singapore, has collaborated with Atlas Forwarding Ltd, a Coop member in Dublin, Ireland, on an OOG air-cargo project. The shipment arrived from Europe to Singapore in a freighter aircraft. E2E had to clear the cargo from Changi Airport, over the weekend and deliver it to the consignee in Singapore.

The shipment consisted of a prestigious high-end dining set worth EURO 500,000. The cargo measured 6.3m (length) x 2.03 m (width) x 1.4 m (height) and weighed 1,491 kg and had a pivotal weight of 5,000 kg.

OOG Shipment by E2E


In the words of Alan Lim, the CEO of E2E Supply Chain Management, “We had to deliver the cargo within a very short period to avoid airport storage and customer dissatisfaction. Our team had to put in extra effort for this OOG cargo due to its special nature. Moreover, despite the last hour change of plans by the importer we successfully delivered the shipment on time.”

For positioning and unboxing the table, they had to arrange for a 110 ton crate with an outreach extending over 3 roof tops along with specialized tools and lifting equipment. “These kinds of cranes are scarce and require advance booking. However, we managed to secure it within a day. In addition, another major challenge involving this shipment was gathering teams of site supervisors, managers, lifting crew and workers within a very short span of time. Lastly, our supplier’s reluctance to cooperate seamlessly was a major hindrance that our team has successfully prevailed over,” adds Mr. Lim.

Congratulations to E2E and Atlas Forwarding for their successful collaboration!

According to Mike Gaglewski from Global Express Forwarding, “When our Irish client requested assistance with moving 2 Boeing 737 Engines from Lagos, Nigeria, to Northern Illinois, USA, we knew we had colleagues based locally who had the knowledge and expertise required to execute this shipment safely and professionally.” Once the shipment was given a green light, it was inspected before being loaded onto a freighter aircraft for the journey to Chicago via Paris, France.

When the freight reached Chicago Airport, Global Express Forwarding took care of the task at hand and processed the shipment through a complicated customs procedure and facilitated trucking to the end user. Mr. Gaglewski further adds, “This shipment was a perfect example of how cooperation with trusted overseas partners is essential in logistics and forwarding. As one of the representatives of the Coop’s branch in Chicago, I would like to thank Cooperative’s truly global network of 300 expert freight forwarders who work together to ensure our mutual success!”

Congratulations to Global Express Forwarding and Atlas Forwarding for setting a perfect example of mutual collaboration!
