First Global Logistics & CH Robinson Team Up For Mega Collaboration

First Global Logistics, member of the Project Logistics Alliance for Egypt, and CH Robinson, member for Canada, Luxembourg, Paraguay, Singapore & USA, recently joined forces in an excellent Air & Sea OOG movement for the Oil & Gas sector. The cargo was moved from the USA to Egypt, which was the perfect collaboration project for our two members.

First Global Logistics & CH Robinson both proved their understanding to the Oil&Gas field, in terms of site urgent demands, rescuing its shut-down by transporting a transformer urgently by air, from door of supplier in Los Angeles to Cairo airport. This was yet another successful movement, both in terms of time and money saving for the client.

In addition, when they submitted their proposal for shipping 2 urgent OOG compressors by 2*40'Flat rack instead of using Bahri's regular break bulk service ex Houston port to Alexandria, with its long sailing schedule that the client was using directly in their previous shipments, their proposal included 30 days sailing time with Maersk line classy service and with an excellent cost of shipping and port charges.
