So long as it is legal to do so we can move it. From the mundane to the dangerous to the just plain odd, we have never been stumped.
When Animals Attack!
We do a lot of work with the entertainment industry so are accustomed to frequent odd requests that combine no time and challenging circumstances. In this case we needed to arrange for the pick up and delivery of one frozen Elk leg. The source was an elk farm in the middle of no where Alberta and the timing was NOW! Our logistics team, after a little head scratching, arranged for the farmer to drop off the leg at the nearest Greyhound bus stop. The bus then got the leg to Edmonton, our local branch office retrieved it and got it off to the airport. The filming went off without a hitch although the elk leg did not survive the savage wolf attack!
Penalty? No thanks!
Manufacturers dealing with the world’s largest retailer know that when they commit to a delivery the goods must arrive on time or they face considerable fines and jeopardize the entire relationship.When 15 pallets of celebrity-endorsed perfume arrived late at a Toronto logistics facility the product had to be delivered in Calgary within 48 hours. As a dangerous flammable product this was already a challenging task and ground transfer was clearly not an option.No air carrier would commit to a one-time shipment due to its size. Our logistics team split the order into many small shipments and arranged delivery with an air carrier who could accommodate consolidated delivery and pickup.
Needless to say, we got the product to the retailer on time, in good order and our client avoided damaging both their bottom line and a critical relationship.
