30 FOCUS PSI Journal 8-9/2016 www.psi-network.de a priority. Following the fire that broke out in the port of Tanjin in August 2015 in which 170 people lost their lives and nearly 800 were injured, it is now blatantly obvious that something can go terribly wrong at large transhipment ports. Hazardous goods are not marked and not transported and stored properly, the transport documents are not in order or insurance cover is missing, and cargo is carelessly handled: Dittkrist has already seen this and much more and has had to rescue many an importer from the low-cost trap. One such case, for example, is often to attempt to fill the very large 40’ containers. Loading and transhipment are cumbersome and therefore take much longer, so the cargo has to be at the port where it is collected up to 7 days prior to the departure of the vessel. As a result, the total lead time is increased by around 7 to 10 days. This long-term timing is especially problematical if delivery from a factory is delayed. So it is better to choose 20’ standard containers which can be loaded in a shorter time. β€œAt Cargo SEAL, bulk consignments are not moved; the fo- cus is always on regular and reliable vessel departure. We do not collect consignments simply to fill maximum container units at the expense of a deliberate delay of several days. Instead Cargo SEAL has special offers involving express handling which ensure decisive time savings,” explains Klaus Dittkrist. INDIVIDUAL SOLUTIONS The customer-oriented service provider only gives such insider knowledge to his clientele. Klaus Dittkrist is constantly developing new ways to solve problems and save the importer time and/or costs. Furthermore, consideration has also been given to the idea of providing PSI members with their own containers which can be loaded at short term. In order to reduce transport damage, it is now possible to use Euro pallets from the factory in China, thus ensuring that the product is well protected and easy to load. Thanks to proprietary offices in Hong Kong and Shanghai, shipments can be coordinated quickly and eff fectively in close consultation with suppliers and everyone involved. < Cargo SEAL (Germany) GmbH Tel.: +49 40 303 73 63-0 info@cargo-seal.de http://www.cargo-seal.de
