In September, on behalf of BTG Messe-Spedition GmbH and for the high level trade fair presentation of a leading German car manufacturer at the SALÃO INTERNACIONAL DO AUTOMÓVEL 2012 in São Paulo, BTG Frankfurt chartered two Boeing B747-400F, in order to deliver the central construction parts of the exhibition stand to Brazil on schedule.
BTG Frankfurt’s warehouse was partially used as a HUB, in order to consolidate the shipments and forward them on to Hahn.
A total of 220 t of freight volume was sent to Sao Paulo on the two 747s.
The loading of the chartered aircrafts with destination São Paulo Airport took place at Hahn Airport under the supervision of two employees from BTG Frankfurt. They were responsible for the careful sorting and air freight labelling of the high-quality technical and video equipment, which was brought to the airport by shuttle service and special transport. Well over 500 packages had to be checked for proper numbering and marking in accordance with the requirements for customs clearance in Brazil.
In addition to the two 747s a further 160 m³ of air freight consignments were sent and also thirty-four 20’ containers were transported by sea-freight. In close cooperation with the Brazilian partner, a total of five BTG employees took care of the customs clearance formalities in Santos and Sao Paulo as well as the complete handling at the Anhembi exhibition site. Despite a latent strike situation with the Brazilian customs authorities, the adherence to delivery deadlines and a smooth build-up at the fair was guaranteed through thorough preparation and precise planning.
The break-down after the fair and the clearing of the exhibition halls was achieved in record time thanks to BTG’s meticulously planned logistics procedures.
TEAMWORK LEADS TO SUCCESS!
Thank you very much to BTG FRANKFURT and the BTG MESSE CREW - São Paulo for their terrific commitment!
