PLA shares success story between Modus and NTG

PLA are ecstatic to share another success story from the Project Logistics Alliance (PLA) HQ, shedding light on the collaboration between two members as they transported a mobile crane from Finland to Greece.

The collaboration included PLA members Modus Logistics Management (Modus LM) and NTG Air & Ocean Oy, representing Greece and Finland in the network, respectively.

The shipment centered around a LIEBHERR LTM1130 mobile crane, measuring 14825 x 2750 x 4000 mm and weighing 73 tons, procured by Modus LM’s client from a Finnish company.

Prior to its transit to Greece, Modus LM’s client meticulously inspected the crane. The engineers and the seller mutually agreed that the crane would be delivered to the Port of Helsinki, with payment from the buyer to the seller to be completed upon its arrival.

Upon receiving a request from the buyer to ensure the safe export of the crane from Finland, Modus LM was tasked with conducting an external check to assess its condition and subsequently issue a FCR and a T2L. To guarantee the execution of these crucial steps in Finland, Modus LM partnered with PLA member NTG Air & Ocean OY, who delivered the required services promptly and with the utmost professionalism.

Despite encountering challenges with the weight of the cargo and the extended transit time via Finnlines and Grimaldi, the crane’s successful delivery to Piraeus, Greece, stands as a testament to the reliability of the services provided by Modus Logistics Management and NTG Air & Ocean Oy.
