First Global Logistics with Urgent OOG Air & Sea Movements for Oil & Gas Sector

First Global Logistics (members in Egypt) have proven their understanding of the urgency of the oil and gas industry by meeting demands to rescue a shutdown by transporting 2 urgent transformers by air from the door of the supplier in Los Angeles (USA) to Cairo.

For the same respected client, First Global Logistics have saved more time and money when they submitted cost-effective proposals to ship 2 urgent OOG compressors from Houston Port in the USA to Alexandria Port in Egypt on 2 x 40' flat-racks instead of using the regular breakbulk service with a long sailing schedule that the client was previously using.
