Conqueror Ulaanbaatar acts as the official logistics service provider of the first commercial wind farm project in Mongolia
Tuushin International Freight Forwarders has been associated with the Salkhit Wind Farm,a flagship project for Mongolia’s renewable energy sector and the energy sector as a whole, which has introduced new and advanced technology and knowhow to the industry.
As stated by Mr Bayarsaikhan Lunden, Director of the Sales Department of Tuushin International Freight Forwarders, “Our team was responsible for arranging the entire transportation from EXW Factories to final site at Salkhit. The items we handled mainly consisted of towers, blades, nacelle and hub shipments.”
Located 70 km southeast of the capital city Ulaanbaatar, the Salkhit Wind Farm is a landmark project that is a result of close cooperation between the private sector, international development institutions, and the Government of Mongolia. The wind farm will be powered by GE 1.6MW turbines. It will offset 180 thousand tons of CO2 emissions, save 1.6 million tons of fresh water, and reduce coal usage by 122 thousand tons annually.
“The clean power generated by this 50MW wind farm will service customers connected to the Mongolian central grid.”Mr Bayarsaikhan Lunden further added.
Congratulations to CQR Ulaanbaatar for being a part of this important project!
The cargo which was shipped from Baroda was moved all the way to Antwerp
Atlas Shipping Services Pvt Limited, our member in Pune and Bangalore, India, has recently handled a cargo consisting of a huge boiler column which was 30 meters in length. The top-notch team work of Atlas Shipping made possible the successful delivery of this complex shipment. The cargo which weighed around 52 MT was loaded at the Mundra Port with the help of a long boom crane. On reaching the destination, the cargo was delivered with the use of a 4 axel semi propelled trailer.
“Moving this enormous cargo during the rainy season was indeed a challenge especially because of the length of the shipment and the terrible condition of the roads. We were required to navigate through small villages which could only be done at night. Our team put forth a great effort and do a hard work,” said Sushil Gupta, Chairman and Managing Director of Atlas Shipping.
Congratulations to Atlas Shipping on successfully completing this project!

Gyro Logistics has implemented a new business strategy by beginning a collaboration with Amazon in Mexico. Gyro Logistics will start handling Amazon FBA business, an ecommerce service offered by Amazon in which they will take responsibility of shipping Gyro’s products.

Mr. Koo further explains that: “The first thing our clients will need to do is to check their Amazon account.

1. Send us the details of the cargo, including the HST code, CIF value, commodity detail, weight, and dimension. They would need to check if a special permit is required by Mexican Authorities.
2. We will summarise the estimated cost, including import duty, VAT, customs and other local fees.
3. Create a FBA shipment account on Amazon MX and apply the FBA label.
4. Ship it to us along with the Amazon FBA order slip (MBL consigned to Gyro and HBL consigned to Amazon FBA).
5. When the cargo reaches the port of Mexico, we will inspect it for the HST code verification
6. Send us the total expense to cover all the costs.
7. We will import it under our own import permit.
8. Create an Amazon shipping slip and forward it to us.

They were presented with this prestigious certificate by the Senior Director of the Australian Border Force
Our member in Melbourne became a part of Australian Trusted Traders on the 26th of December, 2017 and within just 5 months they also received the much-coveted Certificate and Dome.
This is a very significant achievement which is going to boost their business to a great extent and allow them certain special benefits with the Australian Customs which cannot be obtained by other freight forwarders of the country.
In the words of Stephen Mott, Managing Director of Braywin (Vic) Pty Ltd, “Receiving the Trusted Traders Certificate and Dome had been a substantial achievement for our company especially because of the fact that not many logistics service providers in Australia are Trusted Traders”.
“We have signed all our clients up to be Australian Traders so that they can get all the benefits as well”. Stephen continued.
Conqueror congratulates Braywin (Vic) Pty Ltd for garnering this prestigious certificate!
This year’s edition of the Baltic Ports Conference will tackle multiple issues currently relevant to the maritime sector in Europe and the Baltic region
On 6-7 September, 2018, policymakers, industry experts and various other stakeholders will meet in Szczecin, Poland, to take part in the Annual Baltic Ports Conference. The event is a key item on Baltic Ports Organization’s agenda and has long served as a platform for exchanging knowledge and experience between the members of the European and Baltic maritime community.
The event will kick off with a session dedicated to economy and trade in Central Europe and the Baltic region. An overview of the current state of the market, along with an analysis of its impact on the European maritime transport sector, will be delivered by Peter Heyman Andersen of Ramboll. His speech will be followed by a closer look at Brexit and its aftermath and all that it entails for the European port sector.
The economy will remain one of the topics after the coffee break, especially as seen from the point of view of port investments and how they correlate with the state of economy in the region. Considering this year’s location chosen for the conference, the impact of a country’s economic and industrial development on the port sector will be further examined with Poland as an example. The session will be rounded up by an experts’ panel, including representatives from BCT Gdynia, DCT Gdansk, as well as the Ports of Szczecin-Swinoujscie, Tallinn and the Port Authority of Centre-North Tyrrhenian Sea.
The day’s last session will cover one of the key topics for the transport sector in Europe – the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) II proposal for the period of 2021 – 2027. After an exciting networking dinner, filled with live music and other attractions, the delegates will once again assemble in the conference hall at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Szczecin, for the second day of speeches and discussions. Energy will remain at the center of attention during the day’s second session, in particular, its supply as an incentive for new investments in the ports. The conference will conclude with a study tour to the LNG terminal in Swinoujscie, offering a unique view into its inner workings.

In March 2018, TAC carried out the smooth transportation of a huge and heavy machine which consisted of a long conveyor and large roller conveyor belts named ‘three roll calendar line’.
