Case Study 3: Sea Freight - Project Cargo

Our client is one of the largest office & home furniture manufacturers in Bangladesh and was to set up their new Factory in Dhaka. The project cargo included several pieces of heavy and over dimensional cargo that had to be transported to Dhaka from Germany. Project was on FOB basis to Bangladesh.

The supplier was to ship over size heavy cargo machinery component parts from manufacturers in Germany to the factory site in Dhaka where items were to be consolidated into complete systems in the new factory.

Ace Bangladesh wanted to ensure that the project cargo delivery is completed within a period of approx two months with a freight and logistics solution up to the factory location at a competitive price.

Firstly we arranged with our agent in Germany to secure the contract through competitive pricing. We then drove operations forward by advising our client on import and export requirements and legislation and tailored the service to meet their requirements; providing solutions to ship the cargo out from Germany in a charter vessel and handle the heavy pieces of equipment and machinery in Dhaka for our client.

We also provided competitive rates for import and local logistics at both ends; securing equipment with the carrier, managed haulage, secured vessel space as well as destination free time with the carrier. As part of the service we also provide track & trace services for all containers shipped.

Delivery as promised:
The project consignment consisting of 10 Flat Rack Open Top Containers/18 Nos 40HC dry containers/break bulk two large pieces (312 CBMs) was delivered at the factory site on schedule for the civil and mechanical contractors to proceed with the erections.

The scale of the project was substantial that required many arrangements with charter operators, port and customs in Bangladesh, government agencies in Bangladesh for regulatory permission and inland heavy lift transporters to complete the project in two months.

Our experienced freight and project management team were responsible for purchasing containers, packing, sea freight, local handling at destination, delivery to site and off-loading at site.
