In August Chapman Freeborn South Africa transported vital cargo from Johannesburg International Airport (JNB) to Lilongwe International Airport (LLW) ahead of the 41st SADC Summit.
The SADC Summit is an important event during which the Southern African Development Community gather to discuss policy direction of the 16 member states. The cargo comprised of 10 vehicles which were urgently required to provide transportation during the Summit, and the operation required excellent cooperation and efficiency to ensure they arrived on time.
Chapman Freeborn cargo charter manager Africa, Gerhard Coetzee, worked in conjunction with the client, Imperial Clearing and Forwarding South Africa Pty Ltd, to find a suitable solution in the shortest possible timeframe. He arranged for the vehicles to be transported on a Boeing 777-200F on a part-charter to Malawi, and the operation went to plan with the cargo arriving on schedule for the Summit.
Abhilash Kunjupilla, operations director at Imperial Clearing and Forwarding South Africa Pty Ltd, said: “It was once again a pleasure working with the team at Chapman Freeborn, their ability to create innovate solutions at very short notice as well as still maintaining the level of service is impeccable. My team and I are always able to rely on the consistent service from you.”
