Transport Report – February 2020: Month by month Speed & Trust presents “Transport Report“. A retrospective of the most important actions of the company over the last 30 days.
February of this year started for Speed & Trust as it could not be better. We became a member of the Project Logistics Alliance, a network that allows us to be better prepared for any challenge from Project Cargo and oversized transportation.
As far as logistics services are concerned, well, out of the 478 orders, this month we received some special orders. However, at every challenge for the Speed & Trust team, we say it CAN, and the missions are successful. Basically, logistics means having the right resources, at the right time, but especially at the right place.
On the other hand, the Speed & Trust team was present this month in Dubai at the Breakbulk Middle East Trade Show.
Electric transformers transport, a challenge
A 27.5 tonne transformer, transported from Sibiu to Constanța. But his unloading, a challenge.
“I had the challenge of bringing a transformer from Sibiu to Constanța, in a station located near the County Hospital, and the space was very very limited and I did not have access by crane either. So we had to unload the transformer with hydraulic jacks. Unloading is very time consuming and takes a long time. The transformer had to be turned 90 degrees in order to be in position. Prior to this step, the old transformer was first removed“, said Miklos – Andras Szekreny, project manager at Speed & Trust.
Also, in February, another transformer of about 40 tons was taken to the station in Iasi. His unloading was “simpler”, but a 200-ton crane was needed to handle it.
We took care of these end2end projects, we went personally to analyze the conditions in the field, so that when loading / unloading we have no impediments, being high voltage stations.
40 generators, moved from Scotland to Arad in record time of 2 weeks
“One of the projects was to move about 40 containers from England to Arad. It is a project that started last year and due to the teaching conditions at CET Arad has been delayed. We quoted for this project the idea that we were going to make intermodal transport, being a cheaper solution. Subsequently, everything was rushed by the client, and the deadline moved on February 14, the date when all the generators had to be in Romania. I had it available for two weeks and the only reliable solution was road transport. We had to identify the partners who can help us in this project and two days before the deadline we managed to deliver everything successfully. It was a challenge because it was a large freight volume and because the prices offered to the customer were based on solutions that could not be used at the time. We were in time, in costs, and the impeccable organization, team spirit and involvement, ensured our success”, says Ionuț Oancea, Area Sales Manager at Speed & Trust.
Beam transported from Cluj to Rotterdam
Another interesting project this month for the Speed & Trust team was carrying out a large beam transport.
“We received a request from the client to load for Rotterdam from Cluj-Napoca a beam which was part of a large tonnage. The beam had 27 tons. What was more difficult was the fact that after the offer was made the client found that he could not finish the piece in Cluj and had to move to Oradea. The deadlines were off by about two weeks, from the initial estimated time until the song was actually uploaded. However, the track was uploaded on Monday, as I received confirmation of loading late Friday evening. The reaction time was very short for us, but we were able to load exactly as the client wanted. Delivery to Rotterdam was completed successfully“, said Ionuț Oancea, Area Sales Manager at Speed & Trust.
Speed & Trust team in Dubai
“Speed & Trust is a member of several global alliances, and at the end of February we represented the company in Dubai at the Breakbulk Middle East Trade Show and a meeting with members of the Project Partners alliance. We have met many logistics service providers from the Middle East, Europe and even representatives from the United States and Canada. When you are in an alliance you have many opportunities because you become practically unique representative in Romania for our partners and then, any request is addressed only to us, and when we have requests to more exotic countries we have our partners. trust and solutions come much easier. Communication is more open”, said Ionuț Oancea, Area Sales Manager at Speed & Trust.
