During the second quarter of 2014, CQR Casablanca was chosen by Coca- Cola in Morocco to handle a critical shipment consisting of tanks for the beverage processing
The Locofreight team provided the lashing, securing, and packaging and loaded the goods into 2 x 40′ FR from Turkey, 7 x open top in gauge units from Turkey and 6 x 4′ HC and 1 x 20′ ST from Germany
“We were certainly not without our challenges. We had to book the equipment and arrange special trucks to do the job in order to ensure minimal risk of damage, whilst at the same time coordinating with the shipper in Turkey and head office in Germany. Oh and not forgetting the L/C expiry date was nearing,” explained Manager, M’barek A.
“Being the most sensitive shipment we have handled for Coca Cola, we dedicated a highly professional team to keep close eyes on the running of the delivery. We had to make sure the shipping schedule fitted with the deadlines with regards to the shipment date, L/C and installation.”
Thanks to their successful handling of this project, the team is enjoying further business, with Coca Cola requesting their logistics services across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
CQR Casablanca are bucking the trend showing that shipments go better with independent forwarders because they provide the real thing!*
