Case study

Implantation of a production unit for a Canadian industrialist

We organized the logistics for the implementation and installation of a production facility of a Canadian company in Bulgaria. For this purpose we transported three machines to Bulgaria – from Germany, France and Canada. There transportion required an equipment for handling oversize loads, permits and escorts through transit countries. For the machine from Canada we provided multi-modal transport through the port of Varna.

All machines were delivered to the worksite within one week and production began successfully within the scheduled timeframe.
