CQR Genoa was chosen to take care of the handling and transportation of a ship propeller from Genoa to Leghorn in Italy. In addition to acting as the carrier for the propeller, they also provided the lashing and securing.
For many forwarders, the handling and shipping of a ship propeller, such as the one seen here, would not be a common occurrence. However this is not the case for CQR Genoa. In the 5 years since its inception, Euromarine has become the ‘go to’ forwarder in Italy for ‘ship’s spares logistics.’
Dimensions: 3,400mm wide
Sales Manager Laura Dallera explained the reason for this. “Usually, a vessel is stopped in any part of the world waiting for the spare part. Our team understands the time-critical nature of these situations and as such are experts at handling this kind of shipment. Their knowledge ensures that we provide a swift and reliable all-encompassing service; taking care of all documentation, customs and insurance, as well as the actual moving of the part. As a result our customers keep coming back.”
CQR Genoa has had its hands full over the past year with the handling and shipping of an entire Azemar luxury resort to Zanzibar, and the project is still going. At this point I should emphasise that they shipped everything! Tiles, paint, furniture, cutlery, plants, linen, curtains, electrical material, computers, towels, mattresses and even golf buggies. The list is endless.
Due to the variety of goods being shipped, it wasn’t as simple as ‘stick it all in a container and off you go!’ The Euromarine team took into account the nature of each product, resulting in the goods being transported in all manner of ways by sea freight(dry container, flat rack, open top and break bulk) and air freight. In addition to the shipping of these goods they were also chosen to take care of the lashing, loading, insurance, customs…basically a door to door service!
These are pictures of what the final resort will look like.
Sales Manager Laura Dallera says, “The handling and shipping of this resort has certainly shown Euromarine’s claim of being ‘a flexible organization which offers customised services tailored to the specific needs of our clients,’ to be absolutely true. Our team rose to the challenge of this mammoth task and have excelled themselves!”
