Satisfying a Sweet Tooth With 115 Tonnes of KitKat
Years Of Experience:
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.
In the past, we received a sweet request from Nestlé SA. What they needed to achieve was equal parts amazing and challenging considering the volume of this request. We were requested to move 115 tonnes of KitKat Chocolate to Dubai ensuring they arrived there without being melted or damaged. This was done using containers that had a refrigeration function and extra dedication from our team in conjunction with the Nestlé team. In addition to the refrigeration challenge, we also managed to achieve this challenge within a tight deadline.
So, another sweet job pulled off by the Röhlig-Grindrod team, ensuring all requests are efficiently dealt with and whatever the case, we make sure it is within the target deadline.
