    #9 Did You Know Whom To Better Not Run Into In Tallinn?

    Did you know whom to better not run into in Tallinn? In contract to the chimney sweep from last week, beware of the man in the red cloak. In medieval times, the city hired an executioner to punish, castigate, and torture sinners. He was shunned by the residents and contact with him was supposed to bring bad luck. Neither he nor his wife could attend church, his children could not go to school and they made him wear a bright cloak, so he stood out in a crowd.

    Ceekay Shipping Provides A Tailor-made Transfer Solution

    Ceekay Shipping, the exclusive NVOCC partner of the Project Logistics Alliance, has successfully transported a 21-meter long kelly bar to Jakarta, Indonesia from Port Klang, Malaysia.

After discussing with the terminal authorities, Ceekay produced a tailor-made plan which accommodated the safe loading.

    This movement by Ceekay showcases their experience and the ease with which they handle the transfer of over-dimensional cargo.
