duisport packing group expands its safety portfolio
Duisburg, 28.04.2015 | duisport packing logistics continues to expand all-round service for air cargo / Now also reliable partner for entire logistics processing chain for air cargo / dpl Chemnitz certified as official representative by the Federal Aviation Office
During the past few years, duisport packing logistics GmbH has established itself as a reliable partner for processing air cargo shipments. The Duisburger Hafen AG subsidiary, which specializes in the packing of industrial goods, has been certified as an official representative with the Federal Aviation Office since 2010, and is therefore a part of the so-called secure supply chain. The certification of dpl Chemnitz GmbH means that the service range is now also offered across Germany.
duisport packing logistics GmbH (dpl) specializes in the packing and shipping of heavy equipment and machine components. During the last two years, dpl has expanded its services so that the safe status of air cargo can not just be maintained but equipment and machine components can now be designated as safe directly at the Duisburg operating site on the basis of the corresponding analyses. This does away with the time-consuming inspections at the airport. Moreover, packages no longer have to be opened prior to loading, avoiding damages. In this way, large and medium-sized customers have access to all-round services that are also available for urgent air cargo shipments.
"We have specialized in heavy and bulky components with metal contents that cannot be x-rayed and would require extensive handling at the airport. During the last two years, we have designated approximately 1,800 shipments with a total weight of around 1,450 tonnes as safe," reports Christian Negele, aviation safety representative and responsible for safety management at the duisport Group. "Particularly when it comes to time-critical air shipments, we are a reliable partner to our customers during the entire logistics processing chain, which has allowed us to distinguish us from the competition," adds Negele.
The issue of reliability and safety is a top priority for customers and the duisport Group alike. Therefore the company submitted an application for an ISPS facility on the grounds of dpl in Duisburg, which has now been approved by the Regional Council in Düsseldorf. This facility can also meet the demanding safety requirements for the processing of maritime vessels. The facility is operated together with Heavylift Terminal Duisburg GmbH. Now products can also be loaded directly onto maritime vessels in addition to inland water vessels.
In addition, the subsidiary dpl Chemnitz GmbH successfully passed the Federal Aviation Office audit, and has now also been accredited as an official representative in eastern Germany.
"We are systematically expanding our safety portfolio to ensure the safe and efficient transport of our customers' goods to construction sites around the world. Our employees receive continuous training and are well prepared for the respective safety requirements both at our operating locations and the plants of our customers," concludes Negele.
