Food & Beverage – Bakery
A high-performance industrial line for bakery
Transporting an entire production line in as few shipments as possible
Origin and destination

Operation lead time
Operation result and highlights
The success of an operation of this magnitude was only possible due to the world-class attention provided by the xpd global teams in Chile and Mexico and their profound knowledge in project cargo operations.
Movement at origin
Movement at destination
Only the largest bakery company in the world, leader in the American continent, with more than 175 plants located in 24 countries producing 13 thousand products for more than 100 brands.
A new product demands a new production line. The client’s planning required that the entire baking line – equivalent to almost two Olympic swimming pools – left Mexico and arrived all together in Chile in just a few days.
A tailor-made, viable plan that covered all the technical requirements and was executed guaranteeing the safety of the cargo.
Three shipments were coordinated with such precision that they arrived in an interval of only a few days.
Besides the expertise in coordinating and executing project cargo operations, our teams were close and in constant communication with the client, totally dedicated to monitoring and sharing visibility of the cargo, including in weekends.
