ABOUT ICS:

” Our company provides a logistics network that connects the coral atolls and volcanic islands of the ethnologically divided regions of Oceania: Polynesia, Melanesia and Micronesia — to the rest of the world. Island Cargo Support (ICS) is different from most logistics companies because as we do not pre-determine the solution for our customers. Shipping to the islands and supporting critical marine spares worldwide requires an “attitude” whereby traditional units of measure for customer satisfaction are not enough. Our company takes the position that “customer satisfaction” means service was average – not worse than expected, but not better either. This is why Island Cargo Support strives to consistently exceed the expectations of our customers.”

They had to immediately pick up & store the crates in a different warehouse location in order to fulfill the pick up date. At the same time they had to wait for the empty equipment to be positioned at the port

X2 Member Global Shipping Services complete Urgent Air Cargo of Oil Field Equipment


The experts at Global Shipping Services were recently contracted by a major Oil and Gas supplier. They were tasked to find best solutions and fastest transit times for a large airfreight. The airfreight consisted of 11 pieces. Weighing a massive total of 36,500 kgs ( 80,470 lbs)  of Blow out Preventers (BOP) parts & stands. The cargo was urgently required in Cairo, Egypt. 

Hence the G.S.S Houston project team had to send the cargo from Houston, U.S.A to Cairo, Egypt. Which is a total distance of 7000 Miles. 

Challenges Faced:

Even though the Global Shipping Services team knew the carriers prior as they handle large volumes of cargo into Egypt for their client. All the carriers were booked 3 weeks in advance. 

Hence to overcome this challenge, the team used their personal contacts & relationships. Remarkably they were able to get some space allocated on 1 flight with Cargolux. And also one connecting flight from Luxembourg to Cairo. All the other carriers needed multiple flights to uplift out of Houston Airport. 

A representative from the Houston team had this to say: 

“A major problem we face nowadays is finding solutions to manage the business. With airlines cutting back on the numbers of flights & the Breakbulk market struggling along. It is a challenging time for everyone. We just have to work smarter & find better solutions for our customers. “

Once they had agreed on the airfreight schedule they faced another obstacle. They had to get the Cargo skidding & get it ready in time to fly to meet the flight. As a result of it being the Memorial Weekend Holiday, it was a very short week. But this did not prove a challenge at all as the cargo was skidded in less than a day. All credit goes to the G.S.S export packing crew.

In today’s market, it is all about customer service & responsiveness. Also how one resolves tasks that are set by demanding clients. Keeping this in mind the G.S.S team responded & added another happy customer to their collection.
