As detailed in the newsletter of August 2011, several of the EFS team are broadcast specialists, dealing with some leading broadcast equipment suppliers based in the UK and elsewhere.
Some of these urgent movements involve shipping OB vehicles (Outside Broadcast) by ro-ro (roll-on, roll-off) ferry to various destinations around the world such as Nigeria, Libya and Turkey for example. As part of the service EFS will also sometimes send staff to witness loading, and then unloading and clearance at destination.
Currently we are moving the below OB vehicle to Thailand for a commercial broadcast company based there. This was collected in Leeds and then delivered to Southampton port. Its value alone circa £500,000. Alongside this a 20′ ocean container was also arranged as part of the shipment sent on a seperate container vessel, and this had to be coordinated to arrive in Bangkok within 2 days of the ro-ro vessel. Now that is coordinated logistics!
The complete order value is somewhere around £2 million for the equipment.
- EFS exports landing gear for a C-130 Hercules
EFS has recently shipped a C130 Hercules nose landing gear under tight time constraints to Montreal airport. Due to the height of the packed cargo it required a freighter aircraft solution as well as additional screening being too big to fit a conventional xray machine. The customs entry required compliance to an export licence.
