The shipment which consisted of more than 87 containers was transported from the USA to Bahrain
Takhlees Shipping Agencies, Conqueror member in Manama, Bahrain, recently handled a special project shipment with over 87 containers which had a net cargo worth of $620,000.

This special project from the government has been a crucial shipment for us and will surely attract other important projects,” says Mr Abdulelah Alarabi, CEO of Takhlees Shipping Agencies.
Congratulations to Conqueror Manama and wishing them the very best for their future endeavours!

To this end, they have teamed up with several carriers including AF, KLM, Finnair, Swiss Air, Lufthansa, Qatar Airways and Singapore Airlines.
It has been a difficult time as we are all facing the COVID-19 pandemic situation for the last few months. The available capacity is very limited on almost all the carriers while the rates are skyrocketing and flight schedules are unstable and mostly at short notice. I appreciate the perseverance of our entire team which has managed to get this important job done almost seamlessly.” adds Mr. Chaichanavong. Presently CQR Bangkok is working on another 3 flights with PPE shipments to UK.
