Horizon International’s Rotterdam team recently managed a large project on behalf of an automotive OEM.
A large consignment of excavating vehicle engines were moved from a customer in Jordan for inspection and maintenance checks by a Dutch specialist company.
Horizon International managed the entire logistics process; handling the oceanfreight importation from Jordan, through to delivery to the Dutch maintenance company.
Following 8 weeks of maintenance, Horizon then arranged retrieval of the engines for return to Jordan. This involved specialist loading. Horizon sent a team to the loading point, who built wooden bases to ensure that the valuable engines were protected in transit – and all parts were secured by strong lashings. The entire re-loading process was completed within 2 hours.
The engines, loaded in a series of oceanfreight containers was then returned under Horizon’s care back to the client in Jordan.
This project serves to demonstrate Horizon’s ability to provide value-added services, thereby differentiating us from most general freight forwarding companies.
A great job by Paul Velraeds (Branch Manager) and his team!
