Client Case

Published 4 februari 2021
Container stuffing & stripping steel pipes

Importing Containers from the far east seems simple. However, international container transport requires the cooperation of many different parties within the supply chain: exporters, customs in the port of departure, carriers, importers, banks, logistics service providers and customs in the port of arrival to only name a few.

Problem importer
An importer of steel pipes within Europe experienced constant hick-ups after arrival of their containers in Europe. The client experienced constant hick-ups at the customs resulting in out-of-stock; unhappy clients and constant demurrage and detention costs for the containers. Therefore, the importer was looking for a reliable partner which could solve their problems.
