At the beginning of August 2009 the corn picking machine shown here should have been transported by airfreight directly from the Italian manufacturer of the German client to South Africa.
However, as the Italian holiday season was just around the corner, it was impossible to find a packing company in Italy, who could construct a transport box for this machine on time. Ultimately there was no alternative but to make a detour via Germany. Through a special transport overnight the machine was transferred from the region near the Italian-French border to Munich. BTG’s packaging manufacturing partner then produced the oversized box, and after completion the machine was flown to Johannesburg on a 747 cargo airplane. The corn picking machine arrived just in time for the ongoing harvest season and was able to be put to use.
