Dimerco
in Action

Moroccan factory avoids shutdown thanks to creative cross-border road freight solution.

A leading manufacturer of high-end automotive parts and accessories had a problem. When COVID-related vessel cancellations delayed ocean cargo moving from China’s Ningbo Port to Morocco, the company was faced with shutting down production lines. Dimerco proposed a creative cross-border road freight solution that would keep the factory running.

Working with our French agent and strategic trucking partners, the cargo was transported by road from Ningbo to Alashankou in Xinjiang, then on to Le Havre in France, before reaching its final destination in Tangier just over three weeks later. Team drivers allowed continue operation of the Asia-Euro Truck. The change of mode from ocean to road required handling by crane, so Dimerco replaced the original case with a more robust customized solder pallet for extra protection. The team also positioned 10 pieces of wood under the pallet to balance the weight of this heavy cargo.

As a result of this creative and logistically complex solution, the shipment was delivered 4 days ahead of the deadline with no factory downtime.
