The cargo which was loaded from Hamburg, Germany, was shipped all the way to Alexandria, Egypt

MGL Cargo Services, Conqueror member in Cairo, Egypt, has recently handled a project cargo for a new production line from Hamburg to Alexandria. In order to deliver this project cargo, they used x40’ HC DC + 2 x 40’ flat racks out of gauge. They made use of special low bed trucks for transporting the flat racks and used cranes and forklifts to discharge the shipment at the destination.

The cargo reached the destination intact and on time, thanks to the expertise and teamwork of MGL Cargo. As stated by Mr. Wassim Magdy of MGL Cargo Services, “We were in charge of each and every aspect of the shipment including documentation, customs clearance, and transportations. The project was not an easy one and we had to make route survey to find the best and safest route from Alexandria to the point of discharge at the 10th of Ramadan Industrial Zone where the cargo was unloaded,” 

Congratulations to MGL Cargo Services for a job well done!

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!

Another feather in the cap for CQR Douala

 CQR Douala triumphs a laborious charter to UN Office, Bria

CQR Douala, recently successfully managed a laborious transport of a charter vessel from Douala to the UN office in Bria, Central African Republic (CAR). This was a tremendous feat since Bria is known for rebel controlled areas near the Kotto river.

Agora Shipping basically took to themselves to first remove the charter from the ship and then load the truck at Douala port. There, they had to go through customs clearance and road procedures BGFT / Barc to endure a long road transport from Douala to Bria. When at CAR, they again had to go customs clearance at Bangui and finally offload at the UN office at Bria. This was a laborious and difficult transport as seen in the pictures but Agora accomplished the task at hand easily.

Agora Shipping & Logistics is a company of Agora group specializing in transport to difficult areas due to their extensive experience. They cater to the supply of integrated solutions in the field of logistics, shipping, customs, relocations, national and international transport, etc. both by sea and by air.

Conqueror takes immense pride in having Agora Shipping & Logistics in our network, as one of our members and congratulates them on their big achievement.

Interview with CQR Venice

Stante, which operates as CQR Venice, is one of the ‘big’ players in the international forwarding and logistics market and since its inception it has continually grown year on year; now employing in excess of 150 people. Recently we sat down with Managing Director Riccardo Stocco to find out more about the company and the secret to its longevity.

Q. Could you tell us a little about Stante’s history and when you joined the company?

A. The business was founded almost 40 years ago by Robert Stante and it has stayed in the family with the next generation following in his footsteps. The Venice office opened a decade ago and I became involved 5 years later.

Q. What sets Stante apart from other Freight Forwarders?

A. Great customer service! At Stante we believe in being clear about exactly what that entails, so we came up with a 3 pronged customer service ‘value system’.

1. Constant improvements and innovation in the services we offer.

2.Constant quality control monitoring of internal and external systems.

3. Listening to the needs of our customers in order to build lasting relationships with them.

Q. How are these values translated into every day operations at the company?

A. I could give many examples so let me explain one which is more recent. It is the opening of a new ID office where we will implement new software and technology that will then be offered to our customers.

Q. As well as offering your clients ‘every-day’ forwarding services, does Stante specialise in handling certain shipments and what would be your most memorable?

A. We offer 360 degree services and solutions along with legal assistance and customs services in import and export. We readily handle shipments which require special equipment to load them and those which are oversize. Probably the most memorable was a break bulk shipment of 3500 ton, 4500 m3 from the North of Italy to Azerbaijan (via Mersin Port – Turkey). Although the actual goods didn’t have the ‘wow’ factor, the size certainly did!

Q. Stante has been a member of Conqueror since 2011 and has just renewed its membership for the coming year. Why did you choose to join Conqueror as opposed to other networks and what benefits does being part of this global network bring to your company?

A. The exclusivity was definitely an attraction as it has given us the opportunity to be on a level playing field with our competitors. Furthermore with a limited number of agents, we can strike the right balance between competition and opportunity, and the development of lasting relationships.

It is clear that with such a well-established position in the industry and customers at the core of all operations, Stante can only go from strength to strength.

We welcome all members requiring assistance with shipments in Venice, Italy to get in touch with the Stante team.
