Dimerco saves the day

Dimerco Express Group overcame a vessel delay and a Customs hold-up to deliver machinery to a trade show in Florida.

 

Nine blow moulding, filling and capping machines, totalling 26.9 tonnes in weight, arrived at Savannah port in the USA from Chinese customer Tech-Long Inc’s factory in Guangzhou, China.

Dimerco was responsible for managing the entire process for Tech-Long, from planning the most efficient route, arranging seafreight and inland transportation, to US Customs brokerage and coordinating with the trade show’s nominated logistics provider.

However, an unavoidable seafreight delay forced Dimerco to find an alternative way of ensuring the cargoes reached the trade show in time. Dimerco suggested delivering the machinery directly by truck, shaving two days off the delivery time and ensuring that the machinery was in place for day one of the event in Orlando.

William Kessler, business development manager of Dimerco Express (U.S.A.) in Atlanta, said: “Because of the oversize height and width of the cargo it could only be legally driven during the day. Dimerco was able to organise and reschedule the transportation with our long-term trucking partner.”

Dimerco also coordinated the return of the cargo from the convention centre in Orlando to Duluth, Georgia.
