Conqueror Ljubljana, Slovenia, acquires the AEO Certificate

This certificate makes STORI D.O.O. one of the few freight agencies in Slovenia to acquire it on the top level – AEO F

After over six months of hard work, study, dedication, paperwork, and extra working hours from the entire team, STORI D.O.O.- our member in Ljubljana, Slovenia, finally obtained the AEO certificate. What distinguishes them from other AEO certificate holders is the fact that they received the highest level certificate of AEO F (combined AEO C + AEO S) which is sure to secure their position as one of the top freight agencies of Ljubljana.

On this picture you can see one of the co-owners of STORI D.O.O. & STORI.KOM, Mr. Aleš Koncilja, receiving the certificate from Head of the customs office in Ljubljana, Mr. Zlatko Alibegovic.

”Our customs clearance procedures are faster and less controlled for known importers/exporters which allow us to offer faster handling of shipments and goods. This will improve the trust of our clients and open new ways for potential clients in the future,” says Aleš Koncilja, Head of the Ljubljana branch of STORI D.O.O.

Mr. Koncilja further added, ”I would like to thank my entire team as well as my customers whose hard work and unwavering support has allowed us to prove our worth as one of the best forwarding companies of this country.”

Conqueror Esbjerg transports a heavy cargo from Esbjerg, Denmark, to Aarhus, with Panama as the end destination

Jutlandia Terminal A/S was also in charge of lashing and securing the transportation of the cargo

Some weeks back, Jutlandia Terminal A/S, our member in Esbjerg, Denmark, was responsible for the complete process of coordinating the transport, loading, lashing and securing of a heavy cargo. Their logistic department operated for this specific job as a one-point-of-contact, which handled the proper coordination between the various departments. The “one-point-of-contact” service offered by CQR Esbjerg, has allowed them to simplify the process for their customers, who now only have one person to contact regardless of the nature of the services.

“Jutlandia arranged the pick-up of the cargo from their customer’s site in Esbjerg and had it delivered to Jutlandia’s terminal at Europakaj in Esbjerg. Due to the special dimensions of the cargo, it had to be reloaded onto a flat, suitable for transporting this cargo, which did not fit a standard solution,” says Maiken Spangsberg Thygesen, Logistics Coordinator of Jutlandia.

After the loading, Jutlandia’s terminal workers lashed and secured the cargo to the flat and made it ready for sea freight. The cargo was then transported to Aarhus, with Panama as the end destination. Ms. Thygesen further adds, “I would like to thank all my team members for the successful accomplishment of yet another important project.”

Conqueror congratulates Jutlandia Terminal A/S for handling the project successfully!

CQR Riga and Klaipeda successfully delivers 1500 wagons of UZBEK HDPE

The shipments were transported from Nukus region in Uzbekistan via their warehouse in the Port of Riga to several destinations across the EU and beyond 

On 20 October 2018, Rinosta Shipping Agency, our Conqueror member in Klaipeda (Lithuania) and Riga (Latvia), delivered their 1500th wagon of Uzbek HDPE via their warehouse in the port of Riga.

As noted by Alexander Gordeev, the Managing Director of Rinosta: “Through careful process integration and a thought out approach, the project proved to be a tremendous success, bearing in mind the complex nature of such business and the specificity of the HDPE market.”

Usually, goods from Central Asia are delivered by rail to Rinosta’s warehouse in the Port of Riga, from where they are distributed and delivered across the EU and the rest of the world. This time the efficiency and commitment of Rinosta were put to the test with the HDPE Project, but the challenge was accomplished with flying colours.

“As unusual as it might sound, the remote areas of Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Kyrgyzstan are very easy to reach from the Baltic region of the EU,” adds Mr. Gordeev.

Congratulations to Rinosta Shipping Agency on the delivery of the 1500th wagon!
