    AC PROJECT AND FORWARDING & Logimar perform together under time pressure

    The Bilbao office of our member AC PROJECT AND FORWARDING, SL representing Spain recently delivered a Turning Center for High Precision Cutting. Even though the delivery on time was a special challenge for this project, the transport was performed without any incidences. The crate with a weight of 17 tons and dimensions of 4.54 x 4.10 x 3.75 meters was about to be exhibited at the BIEMH in Bilbao, an international machine tool exhibition. Therefore, delivery on time was a priority. In the first part of the transport, the crate was loaded in Korea and shipped to Genova Port in Italy. Our member Logimar was in charge of cross-docking at Genova Port and re-loading for the second part of the project; the transport to Algeciras Port in Spain. When the cargo arrived in Spain, the AC PROJECT Team took over for unstuffing. They moved the crate to an oversize truck to reduce the transit time to the destination and were able to deliver the cargo to the BIEMH on time! AC PROJECT sends a “Thank You” to Logimar for their support and enabling another on-time delivery. Congratulations to both Project Teams from the Project Logistics Alliance, you rock!
