As a part of their endeavour to broaden their horizons and maximize the optimization of processes, they are investing in coal import operations
Cargo WWS, a Coop member in Warsaw, Poland, handled a bulk cargo shipment of 34K MT of coal from Palmarejo, Venezuela, to Gdansk, Poland. The shipment – that had a length of 189.99 meters and a width of 32.3 meters – was first transported by sea freight. The vessel carrying capacity was 50337 t DWT and the draught was reported to be 11 meters. Afterwards, Cargo WWS moved the shipment through 17 trains with almost 2000 MT cargo in each to finally deliver it to the client yard.
“With the aim of expanding our horizons and maximizing process optimization, we had strategically selected sea freight and railway as our preferred transportation solutions. Moreover, recognizing their inherent efficiencies, we believe that these modes of transport offer the most effective and streamlined options for meeting clients’ logistical needs,” says Łukasz Leśniak, Managing Director of Cargo WWS.
One of the biggest challenges we had to face was to get the spot for unloading in the port because of the huge congestion at that time. “Despite the congestion, we were able to discharge the shipment at the port promptly, demonstrating our commitment to meeting deadlines and delivering exceptional service to our clients,” continues Mr Leśniak.
Additionally, they offered their customer comprehensive services to handle the shipment successfully, and took charge of the formalities required. They efficiently handled all the necessary paperwork, including the contract of the vessel agency to provide a smooth and hassle-free process for their clients ensuring compliance with all relevant regulations and requirements.
Congratulations to Cargo WWS and all the best for their upcoming projects!
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!
