News: Global Logistics Alliance Joins the Project Cargo Network as Renewable Energy Project Specialists in South Africa
We are extremely pleased to have recently joined Project Cargo Network (PCN) as members and specialists in projects. PCN was established in order to offer a networking platform for specialists within the project cargo industry.
Recognition as Freight Industry Leaders
As a logistics corporation with offices based in Cape Town, Durban and Johannesburg we are extremely proud to be recognised as industry leaders in freight forwarding and project cargo.
In response to the announcement, Chairman of GLA, Giuseppe Arnoldi stated, “At Global Logistics Alliance, we believe that honest and effective communication with our clients and partners is the cornerstone of excellent services. What set us apart is our passion for the industry and for our clients as well as our dedication in achieving optimal levels of hands-on personalised services, facilitated by our dynamic and skilled management team who collectively have over 70 years of experience in the freight forwarding and logistics industries.
GLA are renewable energy specialists and have successfully managed many high-value projects, offering our customers world-class service levels at competitive pricing throughout South Africa. Our project teams focus on reducing risks and costs while providing total transparency and ensuring cargo reaches its destination on time. Our aim is to give peace of mind throughout the duration of any project and our accomplishments in handling complex logistics challenges lie in our strong relationships with our service providers and customers.”
What Sets GLA Apart
With the help of our overseas partners, GLA is able to facilitate the shipping of larger and heavier cargoes, including the disassembling, shipping and re-assembling of intricate components. It’s for this reason that we have been recognised as project specialists in our field.
We offer our clients a host of cargo management services for construction, procurement and engineering corporations that cater to multiple industries including mining, pipeline, energy, chemical, infrastructure and petrochemical and others. The transport planning required for such shipping requires extensive planning from both the origin to the destination.
The Need for Green Energy Solutions
With today’s green energy trends and the increased investment in clean energy technology, business opportunities for specialists in project cargo are increasing, specifically for those with the capability to handle oversized equipment like wind turbines.
As a PCN Member, our ability to manage our offices independently and privately allows us to focus our full attention on providing our clients with personalised service suited to their requirements. Other transnational shipping companies have limitations in terms of inflexible cargo policies and procedures. GLA and our fellow PCN Members can accommodate our clients’ specific requests and make quick recommendations and decisions per shipment, meaning that we can give top local service on an international level.
Within the network, our project cargo services have been listed as follows:
- Door-to-Door / Door-to-Site Transportation
- Customs Clearance (which includes Temporary Import, ATA Carnet and Stage Consignments)
- Feasibility Studies
- Route Surveys, Route Clearance and Abnormal Transport Permits
- Special Transport Equipment for Abnormal Loads
- Multimodal Transport (Rail, Trucks, Tugs and Barge)
- Use of Specially Selected Reliable Carriers at Competitive Rates
- Equipment Procurement and Rental Assistance
A Comprehensive Logistics Solution
At GLA we can provide our clients with the personalised, flexible service that only privately owned freight forwarders can offer, giving them holistic and comprehensive logistics solutions with the help of local people with a deep understanding of their market.
