DB Schenker has opted to make use of Volga-Dnepr Group’s ‘Cargo Supermarket’ service for delivering two ball valves from Australia to Italy for maintenance work.
DB Schenker was able to meet its customer’s time schedule and provide a highly cost efficient solution by by choosing a combination of Volga-Dnepr’s charter and scheduled cargo services.
The customer requested a solution that reduced the number of loading and offloading procedures or the need for trucking between hubs to ensure the safety and integrity of the cargo apart from fast delivery. Volga-Dnepr was able to satisfy both criteria, since one of its IL-76TD-90VD freighters is positioned in the Asia Pacific region permanently.
Robert van de Weg, senior vice president, sales & marketing at Volga-Dnepr Group, said, “This is another good example of how we are using the full capabilities of our Group to provide the best solutions for our customers, helping them to respond quickly to their own customers’ requests and also deliver a cost efficient service. We are seeing growing demand for this type of solution, which is why we created our unique Cargo Supermarket service concept.”
