137 Tonnes Of Machine, Easy.
When you’ve been in the freight industry for as long as we have, you’re bound to have the odd request from a client. What do we do? We explore the requirements and accept the challenge, be it big or small. We actually pride ourselves in undertaking challenges and pushing the limit when it comes to freight forwarding. Some of the strange requests we’ve received, include live animals, vintage cars and engine blocks from the world’s finest locomotives. Whatever your requirement, we’re glad to accept the challenge and constantly test ourselves.
Over the past 2 months, we’ve highlighted our proudest achievements in terms of odd requests and the manner in which we’ve dealt with them. There seems to be an interest in the strangest requests we’ve received, with this in mind, here’s another instance of a special request.
We were recently tasked with delivering a mammoth 137 Tonne Crusher. Aside from the sheer weight of this Crusher, it needed to be imported from Europe to the Durban Harbor. As usual, our efficient team was prepared to handle the delivery and clearance of this Crusher.
Once the Crusher arrived at the harbour, it was inspected and the condition of the cargo was reported back to the client, who was more than happy to receive his Crusher. The final delivery was complete with all mechanical parts and the full consignment arrived at its required destination.
This delivery successfully completed through a joint-effort between Business Development Manager, Lee Berman and the Durban Sea Freight team, Devarsha Lalbasanth and Kreasan Reddy, who kept our valued client in the loop at all times.
We can safely say that our client was more than overjoyed with the service received from Röhlig-Grindrod and we hope this inspires you to get in touch with us for any of your logistical needs.
