Beyond Rubber Glove Delivery
The year 2020 is the year of the global pandemic of COVID-19. This has resulted in high global demands for protective gears like masks and rubber gloves. In June 2020, MLH Worldwide was tasked to handle and deliver huge consignments of rubber gloves. MLH Worldwide is an international forwarding arm of the MLH Group. We work with our overseas network partner, GEFCO to provide logistic solutions to both local and international clients.
However, there was a big challenge. The pandemic has caused many airlines cancelled their flights and restriction of movements in many countries. From door-to-door, port-to-port, and anywhere to the customer’s door, we cover them all.
The rubber gloves were due to be delivered to Muscat, Oman. Thankfully, MLH Worldwide together with the assistance of our partners and sister companies, we are able to coordinate the delivery with an airline representative. We packed the shipment in the cargo and middle row of passenger seats. And we also handled the loading from the shipper’s location. There was a difficulty. All the cartons were loose. Hence, we quickly got into action by printing the stickers and placed it onto the box. Then we did a build-up at the airport and loaded them into the cargo. The loose cartons were placed in the passenger area. The result: We are able to save the consignment from damages and the delivery went on as scheduled.
