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.

CQR Stuttgart achieves a remarkable feat by moving oversized shred press

CQR Stuttgart ships three heavy lift pieces of more than 230 tons from Germany to Scotland

Emons Air & Sea, CQR member in Stuttgart, moved a dismantled shred press from Germany to Scotland at the end of August. The shred press consisted of three oversized heavy lift pieces of 92, 82.5 and 58 tons that had to be transported.

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.

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.

A new freight forwarding network that will operate as a “virtual multinational”, with obligatory co-operation among members, a single worldwide brand and exclusive territories, claims it will provide advantages currently enjoyed only by the biggest players, writes Kizzi Nkwocha.

IFW has been told that applications are being accepted to join Madrid-based Conqueror Freight Network, in which carefully selected members will work with each other on at least 50% of their shipments to maximise the benefits of “disciplined co-operation”.
