Bolloré Logistics India Successfully Executed a Large Scale Shipment

September 4th, 2019

Bolloré Logistics India recently handled a major air charter shipment from South Korea to Mumbai Airport (India) for one of the world’s leading aerospace and trains manufacturers.

​The client was looking for an effective transport solution to airlift a train’s 23.5 m long and other equipment from Incheon (South Korea) to Mumbai (India) within a limited span of nine days. Based on these requirements, Bolloré Logistics’ qualified Korean and Indian teams worked hand in hand to offer a custom-made transport solution, which would meet the manufacturer’s expectations. Both teams took up the challenge to ensure the materials efficient transportation and timely delivery.

Bolloré Logistics Korea greatly managed transportation from shipper factory to airport (Ex-works) in collaboration with various stakeholders (trucker, carrier’s local agent & ground-handler), while Bolloré Logistics India planned and proposed the cargo offload methodology, including the coordination through MIAL (Mumbai International Airport Ltd.) and other agencies for special authorizations requested for cranes, trailers & handling staff.

Based on MIAL declarations, Bolloré Logistics has been the first Freight Forwarder to handle such a long single piece’s air shipment through Mumbai Airport. Thanks to careful forecasting and precise risk management processes, Bolloré Logistics was able to successfully manage the operation and fulfilled its time and quality commitments towards its client.

Commenting this satisfying outcome, Sanjay GOEL, Chief Executive Officer of Bolloré Logistics South Asia said: “It’s the vision and leadership initiatives that finally make the winning moves. Size doesn’t matter, planning does and the teams in Korea and India did a fantastic job ensuring that the project would be well delivered.”
