G M B International Shipping and Akar Logistics has successfully transported high value cargo – geophysical equipment from Doha, Qatar via Istanbul, Turkey to Baku, Azerbaijan . The cargo was loaded into 15 x 40’HC COC from Doha, Qatar and upon arrival to Istanbul, Turkey the cargo was reloaded into 15 x Standard Trailers for further delivery to Baku, Azerbaijan. There were strict requirements from the client, supplier side, and insurance company which were required to be met. They had managed to arrange everything as per the requirements despite COVID – 19 pandemic situation. The main requirements were as follow:

  • They had to arrange a third party surveyors at the loading point, transshipment point, and at the destination
  • All 15 x 40’HC COC had to be loaded and dispatched together on one vessel under one Bill of Lading
  • All 15 trailers from transshipment point in Istanbul, Turkey to Baku, Azerbaijan had to travel together in block
  • The trailers were allowed to stop only in designated and secured stop points – TIR Parks
  • All the trailers from Istanbul, Turkey to Baku, Azerbaijan had to travel with two escorts – one in front and one behind , which they managed to arrange via Turkey , Georgia and Azerbaijan territory.
  • All the trailers had to have a GPS system which is working in real time and they had to provide the GPS operator’s company name to the insurance company. Therefore all the trailers were equipped with the GPS system as per insurance company’s requirements.

G M B International Shipping had been working on this project for a long time and finally the job was awarded to them, and they successfully delivered the cargo to Baku, Azerbaijan before the deadline and despite the ongoing pandemic situation. They would like to say a bit thank you to their partner in Turkey – Akar Logistics who helped arrange the transport in a professional way as per the requirements.

2020 Logistics




South Africa

Logistics is a word that you would see most often on the side of trucks. it might sound like a simple-enough business of moving things around, but it is growing to be more complex than this. Good logistics can make all the difference to a company’s ability to serve its clients. In an ever changing world of commerce, where the process of doing business with end users keeps evolving, the importance of logistics becomes more prevalent. At 2020 Logistics we know that the word has an even bigger meaning: it is all about the management of the flow of materials through an organisation, from raw materials to finished goods – ensuring the successful delivery of the right product to the right place at the right time. The price of success is hard work, dedication to the job at hand, and the determination to always apply the best of ourselves to any situation. Our aim is to follow a forward-thinking, proactive approach to all shipments thereby ensuring that all global freight forwarding and procurement challenges are effectively managed. At 2020 Logistics we have a clear vision in mind – to ensure we do everything we can, to move your business forward.
