Advance Preparation

  • Proposal of Forwarding Plan (Overall Plan)

  • Advance Preparation (Detail Plan)
    We will make advance preparation in accordance with the forwarding plan.
    Congested hours are avoided for Artwork handling with minimal movement and time.
    Our professionals for Artwork handling will work up detailed forwarding plan by simulating actual handling.

Transport Flow

  • Delivery to warehouse
    In order to minimize the risk of damage, the truck would stage close to the build-up area of the warehouse. To prevent cargo from falling over, our handling staffs will support offloading from both sides.
  • Build-up
    In order to minimize the shock to the crates, we would utilize shock-absorbing materials and/or corner-pads, if needed. To avoid direct sunlight or rain/wind, the crates will be kept in the warehouse until the last minutes.
  • Loading
    In order to minimize the shock to the crates, the towing tractor would drive slowly at the tarmac.
