Moving 29 containers and 14 out-of-gauge loads 700 kilometers in just 2.5 months
A global beverage manufacturer needed to transport a manufacturing line from Russia to Nigeria, where 16 factories produce its beverages. Agility moved the cargo through Russia from the customer’s factory in Istra, near Moscow, to St. Petersburg – a distance of nearly 700 kilometers – in 29 40-foot containers and 14 out-of-gauge loads. Once the shipment reached St. Petersburg, Agility arranged for movement to the port of Lagos in Nigeria. The shipment had to get to Nigeria in two and a half months, a timeframe that required careful planning. Agility worked closely with the customer to ensure that the technical and stowing dimensions, as well as the cargo quantities, could be accommodated by the ship’s dimensions. The movement was a success, and the shipment reached Nigeria in the required timeframe.
