40 Tonnes of freight jets off

Robotic assembly-line components manufactured in Port Elizabeth were road freighted to Oliver Tambo airport in Johannesburg where they were loaded onto a chartered flight and delivered to a motor assembly plant in Mexico. Turners Shipping managed the time sensitive delivery of the 48 crates on behalf of BDP-USA.

“The challenge was coordinating the delivery of the freight to Johannesburg to coincide with the arrival of the chartered flight from Germany.

We were aiming for a 24-hour turnaround time, which we achieved,” says Treven Govender, Air Freight Manager at Turners Shipping. “We are ready for the second consignment later this quarter.”
