Shipments of Children’s Playgrounds

December 11th, 2018

Goric Playgrounds started using Bolloré Logistics Boston for their transportation and brokerage needs in July 2017.

​Goric Playgrounds - based in Belmont, Massachusetts - is an importer of high end playground equipment for public spaces around the US, Canada and beyond.  Their equipment is primarily sourced from close to 10 suppliers in Germany and one in the Netherlands. They are shipped by sea freight LCL and air freight, to different locations every time.

The equipment shipped by Bolloré Logistics included an indoor office slide for tech company Datto in Rochester, NY; a hill slide at Rush Creek Lodge in California and a jungle gym-like Wallholla at Swampoodle Park in Washington, DC.

Their most recent project was a foreign-to-foreign shipment of a Wallholla from Rotterdam to Panama which was handled by Bolloré Logistics Rotterdam.
