March 24 - Global Cargo Line has shipped seven large cotton pickers from the USA to the UAE and Turkey.

"It was a really challenging operation because of the time frame we were given," explained Had El Badawi, development manager of Global Cargo Line. "The cargo had to arrive at its destination in less than 50 days before the cotton harvesting season started, otherwise huge losses would have occurred."

Some tyres were removed from the machines to minimise their size, and some other parts were dismantled, which meant that the machines had to be reassembled on arrival.

Despite inclement weather and lack of vessel space Global Cargo Line loaded all of the units on time and delivered the cargo prior to the deadline.

Global Cargo Line joined the Project Cargo Network (PCN) in July 2012.
