Ahlers Jakarta successfully ships modified containers

June 22 - Ahlers Jakarta has successfully handled a project shipment of 29 modified containers from Jakarta port to Sambarata, East Kalimantan.

The shipment included 20 ft and 30 ft tank containers and was transported with an LCT ship to Sambarata. Six parties were involved in this shipment. 

Modified containers are containers of which internal parts are modified in order to use them as moveable mini offices or factories.

Meanwhile, Ahlers Bangalore co-ordinated a shipment from Dalian, China to Bangalore of machinery and components necessary for the set-up of a production site of electric motors near Bangalore. The consignment included a giant dip tank.

Practical problems with the tank forced Ahlers Bangalore to ship out of Tianjin, where the local Ahlers office took over the co-ordination.
