Route

from Germany to Sweden (with a sea crossing in Denmark) on Ground Express.

The project

transporting new prototypes to a base in the far north of Sweden and bringing the prototypes that were already tested back to Germany.

Highlights of the operation:

“The dynamics of the client’s business require the development of plans exactly tailored to each shipment, quite adjusted to the needs of each project, and with flexibility and dedication to adjustments during the operation, as well as monitoring and real-time information – and these are exactly the differentiators that we, at xpd global, have to offer.” Alejandro Calero, xpd global Spain.

The challenge

At the time agreed to deliver the new parts to the operator, the customer’s team was still working on hydraulic adjustments to the equipment.

The solution

Our experienced aerospace teams offer:

  • the flexibility to act in the event of contingencies,
  • the ability to design and tailor custom plans,
  • bargaining power with our carriers, and
  • the ability to communicate with customers and suppliers.

 

All of the above are essential to adapt the operation and transit times to the client’s project.

Thus, we negotiated with our specialized carrier that the operator should wait, so that the client’s team had the peace of mind to work for a few hours more on all the necessary adjustments, while we adapted routes and times so that everything was delivered in time for the tests.
