Our client

One of the most important producers of cement, concrete and aggregates in the world, focused on solving construction challenges in an innovative way.

The project

Over the course of 2023, obtaining space to transport rolling cargo from Asia to Latin America was a challenge – and a bigger one for such a significant cargo volume.

The solution

Ensuring space to transport rolling cargo along with the planning required to coordinate the collection and delivery of the units.

The differentiator

Our global network specialized in industrial projects played a fundamental role in providing alternatives to the saturation of spaces in Ro-Ro vessels.

We quickly shared competitive rates and itineraries to the customer, ensuring a smooth, efficient and safe operation for the units, providing cargo status updates at all times.
