China members, Topline Express Logistics (TEL) have worked closely with their PCN partners in Serbia, Delta Transportni Sistem (DTS) to complete the delivery of four tyre production lines.
The production lines were sold by a German-invested manufacturer in China under DDU terms and TEL were awarded the project for their bespoke packing solutions and competitive logistics costs. The whole project consisted of the below cargo shipped in several lots by multimodal transportation from China (ocean, rail and road) and delivered to the consignee in Zrenjanin in Serbia in perfect condition.
- 65 x 40’HQ
- 16 x 40’OT (OH)
- 2 x 40’FR (OW)
- 2 x 20’GP
Operation Manager at TEL, Yoyo Ge explains; “The entire operation was completed without issue. However, we needed to be attentive to details in planning for the OT and FR containers. Because the cargo was 3.98m high in the OT and 3.8m wide in the FR, there were restrictions for the on-carriage operations so we had to work closely with DTS to find the best solutions and ensure clearance from the port to the consignee’s premises in advance. Also, as some of the wooden crates loaded into the OTs had a very little space, we ensured the straps were left on the cargo after the lifting operations to make the unloading in Serbia possible.”
Another successful delivery as a result of a strong collaboration between PCN members!
