In January 2014, Arbour Shipping Ltd successfully negotiated the contract to move Lifeboats and fixings for one of Europe’s largest suppliers of Hyperbaric Lifeboats and Secure Launch Systems.
Such a prestigious client required a lot of hands on experience to ensure everything was handled properly. These lifeboats are awkward items to secure on to 40’ Flat Rack containers without damaging them. Luckily, that’s what Arbour Shipping Ltd is all about.
Taking the clients purchase order, Arbour Shipping Ltd, liaised with the manufacturer in China to successfully collect the items. It was a full purchase order management package that our client needed, so that is what they received. We handled everything for the client from the moment we received the purchase order to the moment we delivered it to its final destination in Holland. This included liaising with the manufacturer regarding order processing, l/c requirements and documentation. We placed our own people on site to inspect the cargo ready for collection and had people onsite whilst the lifeboats were lashed and secured.
All along the way the client was kept updated on his cargo’s progress from start to delivered.
A thoroughly enjoyable shipment, challenging but rewarding at the same time.
