Moving oversized cargo is a challenge; add variables like civil unrest, road strikes, insubstantial roads and bridges, and holiday schedule delays, and you need Agility. Agility moved two large break-bulk shipments containing compressor sets and ancillary products from the U.S. to Yacuiba in the deep south of Bolivia, via Chile. The variable delays led to the expiry of road permits, so Agility made up time by pre-alerting customs agents with required documentation to smooth the way for cross-border clearance from Chile into Bolivia.
Agility also took detours through fields when bridges and small village roads proved too fragile for two massive loads, the largest comprised of 94 pallets and crates weighing 282 metric tons. Consignments arrived safe and damage-free.
