June 4 - Globalink's project freight forwarding division recently coordinated the shipment of 100,000 tonnes of oil and gas pipes from Italy to Iraq.
The Globalink team chartered 12 vessels to transport consignment, and its staff were on the ground at the Port of Umm Qasr, Iraq, to coordinate each vessel's discharge.
Globalink ensured cranes were in place to handle the oversize pipes, while it processed all the Customs clearance formalities. The pipes were then reloaded onto trucks for oncarriage to the final jobsite.
Due to political instability in the region, Globalink arranged for a security convoy to accompany each shipment; in total just under 5,500 truck loads were delivered without a single incident.
