Here at Brunel Project Cargo, we are incredibly proud to recently have been awarded the contract for a multimillion dollar cargo movement under L/C to China, based on DDU terms.
We were faced with tight project deadlines to export the cargo from the UK to arrive in China with no transhipments allowed. We oversaw the transport of the cargo from the supplier premises to Felixstowe Port, travelling at a maximum of 40mph due to the nature of the cargo which measured 4.3 x 3.0 x 4.0m and weighed a whopping 41tns. On arrival at the port, we made sure that the cargo was lashed and secured in a safe manner with the help of the insurance underwriters.
The cargo was just about to be shipped when we received a phone call from the client asking to put the shipment on hold.
James Philpott (Project Director) states: “We immediately contacted the terminal and held the shipment from being exported. Due to the high value of the cargo, we retuned it back to the UK supplier and awaited 3 weeks to finally complete the export to China”.
Our reliable services at Brunel Project Cargo meant that the cargo arrived safely and is currently in a bonded warehouse awaiting final delivery to the consignee.
