Aeromar Logistics Ltd prides itself on living up to its motto, ‘Anytime, Anything, Anywhere!’ In this story the emphasis is really on the ‘anything.’ If there is one kind of shipment that freight forwarders are known to shy away from, its perishables. To be honest, I don’t blame them; there are far easier ways to make a quick buck! But CQR Ahmedabad is not one of those and they regularly handle every step of the shipping process for these kinds of perishable shipments.
One of their most recent perishable shipments consisted of 918 Kg of live fruit plants which the team had to ship to Ethiopia by the airline Emirates. The Aeromar team took care of the custom clearance of the plants as well as all the product related documentation, including the Phyto Certificate and the Certificate of Origin.
When speaking with CQR Head Office, General Manager, Dhaval Shah, said, ‘This kind of shipment, although rare for some forwarders, really is another day at the office for us. Our expert staff ensure a personalised timely service to even the most obscure locations.’
CQR Ahmedabad has been riding on a wave of success after being named 2nd ‘Best Consolidator of the Year’ (Export) in Western India by the Container Corporation of India (a government of India enterprise).
The CQR Ahmedabad team were awarded this accolade thanks to their high number of shipments and clients, the significant value added to the business over the previous year and last but not least their professionalism.
But AEROMAR’s success doesn’t stop there! They were also shortlisted for the STAR Award for ‘Best Consolidator of the Year’ and although they were just pipped to the top place, it is still a tremendous achievement for the team. The parameters of the STAR Award differ from other awards as its criteria are based wholly on ‘Excellence,’ and all nominees are nominated because of their continued efforts in excellence and creativity.
These successes are helping AEROMAR to consolidate its position as one of the big players in the logistics industry and long may this success continue!
