A strange question to be asked by a leading international freight company, but one that can save your life when speaking about harmful gases in the home or work environment. A UK manufacturing company are helping to protect thousands of people by constructing specialist gas detection equipment. With such important and highly specialised cargo, the company needed to find a logistics partner that it could trust to not only transport the items on time but also safely and securely.
Horizon have been working with a UK based Manufacturer of specialist gas detection equipment; the product contains radioactive elements and as such needs very special handling and transport planning. The consignments handled tend to be urgent and small and due to the nature of the goods require special permits to travel. Routing also has to be carefully planned to ensure carriers are also able to handle such products. Communication flows and visibility are therefore essential and we have worked very closely with the customer to ensure full compliance.
