Greenroad was glad to assist their VIP customer ZTE transport cargoes & equipment related to communication equipment from China to the Philippines.
The cargo had to be delivered to 25 different remote locations. Greenroad was responsible for the work from ZTE warehouse in China up to the destinations, including offloading. Before the project began Greenroad came up with solutions which took into consideration the geographical limitations, equipment shortage, road obstacles, etc. to meet the stringent requirements of ZTE.
The cargo included general containers and special OOG containers. Greenroad planned intermodal transportation, combining feeder vessels and low-bed trailers, cargo storage with specific requirements for each location and lay down after offloading.
The degree of difficulty for this transport was increased due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The cooperation with ZTE Philippines IDC project, not only helped our customer accomplish their project of national significance, but also proved the strength of Greenroad in servicing the entire industry.
The project was delivered on-time with zero damage.
Greenroad Re-exported 10,000 cbm of Break-bulk Cargo Consisting of Second-hand Mechanical Vehicles from Pakistan to Butwal via Kolkata Port, India
Nowadays, with the deterioration of India-Pakistan relations, import and export transportation is becoming more and more difficult.
This project consisted of more than 20 different types of trucks.
Under the increasingly serious pandemic operations has been more difficult, which has an impact on efficiency and increases risk.
Greenroad always tries it’s best to find the right solution. Despite political and natural factors causing force majeure Greenroad communicated with Indian Customs and Government offices to clear customs smoothly.
Greenroad prepared enough trucks, including more than 20 units of low-bed trailers and normal trucks for special and normal containers.
Greenroad Handled a Consignment of Rice aid Project Cargo from Chittagong to the Rohingya Refugee Camp
Greenroad shipped about 3200 Tons of rice to the largest refugee camp of the world. All rice was in bags and stuffed in 20′ GP containers.
The project required a road survey from Chittagong port to the warehouse. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic especially strict rules were in place for the drivers and workers. The roads were also closed to avoid virus spread, so it was a challenge to find enough workers and trailers to transport the caravan of containers.
Greenroad is one of the appointed companies to provide aid goods transportation service around the world, with rich experience in the transport of food, clothes, books, bikes, vehicles and so on, for the UN, the Chinese Government and NGOs.
Greenroad loves bettering people’s lives by participating in aid work transportation.

On Tuesday 7th July – Global Shipping Services were tasked with collecting urgent equipment needed for a downed fertilizer plant that produces fertilizer for sub-Saharan Africa to support the agricultural industry in the region. Whilst the plant was down, production was at a full STOP.
The cargo needed to be collected, packed/crated and shipped using the fastest solution to Port Harcourt.
All regular carriers declined to carry the cargo due to COVID restrictions, except Turkish, but the space situation and flight schedule was not optimal and Global Shipping Services could not risk delays transferring via Istanbul. So Global Shipping Services opted for the AN-12 charter option.
On the 7th of July Global Shipping Services arranged the Air Charter, and the air craft was mobilized from Accra Ghana to IAH Airport, Houston.
Cargo was packed on 8th, transferred to the airport on 9th and readied for export.
The AN-12 arrived IAH on July 10th at 7:30am, loaded at 10am and was wheels up 22:07 local time.
The customer was panicking a little as you can imagine, with emails and texts coming non-stop, but Global Shipping Services representative Eric Drennan kept them informed of every step of the process.
