Keeping Production Moving
A Korean supplier of automotive parts urgently required daily shipments to be transported to Mexico to keep a production line moving. However, the parts could only be transported as fast as they could be produced, and they needed be delivered within 24 hours of being created.
Upon receiving the enquiry, our OBC team immediately discussed the customer’s clear requirements with them and planned the logistics of the task. It became clear an onboard courier was required every day, on rotation, for the following two weeks in order to deliver the necessary amount of parts to the Mexican factory. We despatched seven local OBCs with the relevant visas and pre-approved paperwork and put them on standby. Each one collected the shipment from Busan then used a connecting flight to Seoul, another flight to Houston, then a final connection to Monterrey. The customer was updated at every stage, day and night, by our teams based in Frankfurt and Hong Kong. All shipments arrived at the manufacturers in Mexico ensuring that production could continue without delay.
