Case Study: Urgent Spare Part Delivery for a Vessel via On Board Courier from The Netherlands to Gibraltar
Background: A shipping company faced a challenge when one of its cargo vessels experienced a mechanical breakdown in Gibraltar. The required spare part was only available in the Netherlands at short notice. Traditional shipping methods were too slow to meet the urgency of the situation.
Solution: They contacted MYOBC to deliver the spare part urgently. Our operations team immediately sprang into action to provide a custom-made OBC solution. We collected the spare part and flew our OBC directly to Malaga AGP Airport. There, he rented a car and drove to the border of Gibraltar, cleared customs, and delivered the shipment personally to the vessel’s engineering team in just 7.5 hours.
Results: Thanks to the quick and efficient delivery of the spare part, the vessel was promptly repaired and continued its journey without further issues.
Conclusion: In time-sensitive situations, an on board courier solution can provide a reliable and quick solution to ensure that time-critical shipments are delivered on time, even in remote locations.
