Their team handled also “Door to Door” service for 19 tons of precision instruments from Germany to Nanjing, China. The volume of the cargo was 8 packages /18940 kgs. The cargo was a testing machine for a powertrain part of a passenger car.
They prepared after the full preparation packing the material and an auto crane and a crew for packing in the factory in advance, such as communicating with the shipper, measuring cargo data on site etc. And their client took their advice to split one piece of cargo, adjusting the height from 2.94m to 1.9m in order to save cost and meet the requirement of the carrier. Since the direct flight from Frankfurt to Shanghai was not operated yet during that time and considering cost and time, Protranser offered an alternative solution: delivering the cargo to Frankfurt airport by truck, from Frankfurt airport to Wuhan airport by air, and finally delivering the cargo from Wuhan to Shanghai by truck. The cargo arrived in the factory in Nanjing after having arranged the import customs clearance in Shanghai and was delivered safely and on time.
