Steve Felder, managing director at Maersk Line India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and Maldives, said: “There was seamless coordination between our team, the customer and the terminal operator to overcome infrastructure challenges and help deliver this delicate and expensive cargo to China.”
