Freight forwarder members of Pangea Logistics Network have been busy transporting motorbikes around the world to locations including Moscow and Panama.
Indian member Connect Cargo transported a Bjaj Dominar 400 from Mumbai to Moscow for the Motorspring Moscow 2017 international fair for outdoor vehicles.
It says the team had to work hard due to the tight time schedule, deploying its team in the airport to offer all the necessary assistance for the shipment, which was routed via Dubai, and the motorbike arrived in Moscow the next day, with the customer able to arrange customs clearance on time and exhibit it at the show.
Pangea Logistics Network network manager, Sarah Bidmead says: “This is the last air freight shipment of a motorbike handled by a PANGEA member. Several members have recently informed us of similar shipments, proving their capacities in managing this type of services, that require great sophistication in planning and executing.”
Uruguayan member Miremar collaborated with Pangea partner in Panama, Asap Panama to ship a Harley Davidson motorbike from Uruguay to Panama.
Miremar prepared the shipment securing the motorbike inside an individual crate, protected and built to its exact measurements, with safety measures including an appropriate base for the wheels, tensioned strap banding, foam protection of interior parts and top cover.
It handled necessary documentation and customs procedures and authorisations from the airlines, and left the crate to travel from Montevideo International Airport to Tocumen International Airport with Avianca Cargo, where it was received by Asap Panama.
New Globe Logistik, Pangea member in India, shipped two BMW motorbikes from Mumbai to Hamburg as a return journey for the motorbikes after travelling more than 68,000 kilometres by road in 45 days.
The two BMW-1200CCs travelled through Turkey, Iran, and Pakistan before entering India through the Wagha Border, before travelling to Srinagar, Kulu, Leh, Ladak and Manali, before going to Goa and then Mumbai.
