Dürr had a very urgent 25 ton air freight shipment that needed to go to Shanghai in China. Due to the oversized dimensions, most conventional aircraft were unable to accommodate the cargo and competitors Schenkers and Kuehne + Nagel both quoted for a full aircraft charter to transport the product.
SEKO sourced a split charter option for less than 70% of the costs quoted by the competition, and then kept in very close contact with Dürr, updating key contacts every step of the way during the transportation until final delivery in China – on time!
Significant cost savings, increased visibility, improved levels of communication, on time delivery and a very happy customer that knows who to turn to for the best solution.
"We often need cost effective solutions for urgent air freight shipments. Our existing suppliers could not provide this but SEKO did, ultimately saving us 70% in costs! Furthermore, SEKO kept in very close contact with us during every step of the movement to China. We are very happy with the way SEKO takes care of our needs and the way we communicate with each other."Thomas Lauer Logistics Manager
