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.
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!

They had to fabricate a skid capable of holding this unit for the seamless transportation of this shipment
E2E Supply Chain Management PTE LTD, a Coop member in Singapore, recently moved a test bench from Singapore to Texas. To move this RORO shipment they had to fabricate a skid and load the cargo onto the skid using 2 units of 55 tonnes crane on site. They lashed and choked the cargo to the skid before covering it with shrinkwrap and tarpaulin/canopy. Thereafter, it was transferred from the site to the conventional port by a low bed trailer due to over width. At the port, they used a 200 tons mobile crane to transfer from the low bed trailer to the Mafi trailer before lashing and choking. Finally, the Mafi was towed on board the RORO vessel.
The dimension of this cargo was 12.76m x 3.4m x 2.02m with a volume of 86cbm. Being quite a big skid, they required additional lashing and choking for ensuring the safety of the cargo. Moreover, it also ensured general public/seafarers’ safety during the voyage and during the land transit in Singapore and Texas.
“The most challenging part of this shipment was to make sure that the skid could carry this over weight cargo. Moreover, we also had to arrange the loading of the unit on the skid, thereafter, onto the low bed trailer. Lastly, on arriving at the port we had to make sure that the mobile crane and lifting teams were on standby to offload onto the carrier’s Mafi. All these activities had to be pre-arranged and carried out simultaneously. Thanks to my teammates for demonstrating the utmost competence resulting in the successful execution of this project,” says Mr. Alan Lim, the CEO of E2E.
Congratulations to the E2E team for the successful execution of this complex project!
These out of gauge shipments were moved by 40 ft flatrack containers and occasionally necessitated police escort
E2E Supply Chain Management, a Coop member in Singapore with 15 years of experience in the industry, is presently handling three important projects involving the shipment of tower cranes. The first shipment which was moved from Bangkok to Singapore consisted of 450 m3 of tower cranes by 6 x 40ft HQ Ex-work mode. The second cargo of 1,500 m3 of tower cranes is being transported from Hong Kong to Ashdod, Israel by 28 x 40ft HQ & 2 x 40ft FR. The 3rd shipment of 700 m3 of tower cranes from Busan, Korea to Brisbane, Australia, by 14 x 40ft HQ is still ongoing.
Standard lashing and choking services were employed for the safe delivery of the cargoes. They had to use several special equipment including 40ft flat racks due to the dimension of the cargo and a police escort was required for trucking PSA Port to the consignee’s premise during the night.
“We are very contented to start the new year with a batch of important shipments. We are already one of the major import and export handlers for different sizes of tower cranes in Singapore and this new year we aim to consolidate our position. Our clients purchase from Europe but mainly from the Chinese local market. After this project, we will also move the tower cranes to Asia pacific, regions in the middle east and Australia and Israel,” states Alan Lim, Chief Executive Officer of E2E Supply Chain Management.
Currently, E2E Supply Chain Management is moving one set (after dismantling) from Taiwan door to Melaka door by 40ft FR of 38 tons and 40ft HQ. “We are also one of the regular import and export handlers for different sizes of press machines. These press machines are regularly bought from China, Thailand, Philippines and Taiwan for Indonesia and Malaysia markets”.
Congratulations to E2E Supply Chain Management and wishing them the very best for their next project!
A part of this break-bulk project will also be consigned to other Coop members for the door to door delivery of the cargo
E2E Supply Chain Management PTE LTD, a Coop member in Singapore, is currently collaborating with Misan Logistics BV, a Coop member in Rotterdam, Netherlands, on an OOG/breakbulk project. “The shipment has been sent from Europe to Singapore in 2 x 40 ft flat rack containers and we have to transship and transload the cargo from Singapore to Indonesia by breakbulk.” says Mr. Alan Lim, the CEO of E2E Supply Chain Management.
Each unit of the shipment has a dimension of 8.8 m (length) x 2.2 m (width) x 2 m (height) and weighs 38 tons. The rest of the air and sea shipments consigned to other Coop members are from Singapore to Shanghai, Hong Kong and Sydney. Mr. Lim further adds, “We are happy to collaborate with our partner in Rotterdam and our project cargo team is seamlessly handing this shipment, a fact which will surely be attested by our network partner!”
Congratulations to E2E Supply Chain Management for successfully carrying out this collaboration shipment!
They are also planning to relocate to a new office space in 2020
E2E Supply Chain Management PTE LTD, a Coop member in Singapore, is welcoming two new members to their airfreight and local distribution team. In the words of Alan Lim, the CEO of E2E Supply Chain Management, “We have recently been appointed for 3 years to handle the airfreight exports and local distribution for a large MNC. This has prompted us to expand our airfreight and local distribution teams by 2 new members and 2 new vehicles.”
They are also in the process of recruiting new members to their sea freight team. Furthermore, the increase in the number of staff members has necessitated the relocation to a larger office space. “We are very enthusiastic about the number of projects coming our way and I am really pleased to announce that we are planning to move to a brand new office probably sometime in 2020.” adds Mr. Lim.
Congratulations to E2E Supply Chain Management and wishing them the best for their future endeavours!
The cargo which consists of several units of machines will be sent from Klang (Malaysia) to Kashima (Japan)
E2E Supply Chain Management, a Coop member in Singapore, is presently in charge of a project cargo shipment worth $500,000. The 1st lot of the shipment consists of 4 x 40ft FR OW & OH & 3 x 40ft OT OH under L/C from Klang, Malaysia, to Kashima, Japan. Each 40ft flatrack container consists of 1 unit of a machine with dimension ranging within 10m (L) x 3m to 6m (W) x 3m (H) and a weight of 20 tons to 30 tons. Each 40 ft open-top container contains 1 unit of a machine with height about 3 m (L and W are within gauge) and weight of 15 tons to 25 tons. For moving this OOG shipment E2E was required to contact the Land Transport Authority for night trucking permission.
“Our supplier’s reluctance to cooperate seamlessly was a major hindrance that our team has successfully prevailed over. Moreover, we have requested for police escort because of the size of the shipment and arranged for qualified surveyors to make sure that the machines are safely loaded/secured for sea transportation.” says Alan Lim the CEO of E2E Supply Chain Management.
Moreover, they were also in charge of moving a cargo from Klang to Singapore by land which required police escort at both the borders. From Singapore, this cargo was shipped out via RORO vessel to Yokohama Port in Japan.
Congratulations to E2E Supply Chain Management for the seamless handling of this ongoing project!
The projects handled by them include the relocation of press machines from China to Batam and Malaysia and the movement of OOG equipment from Sin to Duyen Hai
E2E Supply Chain Management PTE Ltd, a Coop member in Singapore, has seen a 30 % increase in their bookings for services related to the movement of capital goods such as stamping or moulding machines and their production lines relocation from Northern and Southern China to Melaka, Johor.
Some of the projects they have recently handled include the relocation of press machines from China to Batam and Malaysia and the moving of OOG equipment from SIN to Duyen Hai and back. In the words of Alan Lim, the Chief Executive Officer of E2E Supply Chain Management, “A lot of shippers have diverted their factories or investment either partially or fully to Malaysia and Batam. The main challenges of the capital products nowadays are vanning and devanning, temporary import permits for duty waiver and customs clearance.”
E2E also provides specialized engineers/technicians for machine or production line installation. Mr. Lim further adds: “For import, we offer services like import clearance, customs clearance and trucking of shipments from the ports to the consignee premise with/without escort, along with skilled managers, supervisors and workers (in Malaysia or Batam) for unloading the machines/bulky items from containers and vessels.”
