Priority Freight beats deadline by 24 hours to save manufacturer thousands

  • A global manufacturer faced a production crisis over a weekend
  • 10 pallets of key production material needed to be transported from Barcelona to Japan, within just three days
  • Priority Freight delivered the urgent cargo across borders, well before the deadline

Priority Freight’s expertise in time-critical air freight services was called upon late on a Friday in October. An automotive manufacturer’s production line had come to a halt when a key material supply unexpectedly ran short.

Having vast experience in time-critical international deliveries, Priority Freight was expertly positioned to arrange prompt flights from Barcelona El-Prat Airport to Narita International Airport and deliver the urgent cargo in just two days.

The team at Priority Freight faced a number of complexities that needed careful consideration and a fast-acting response. Due to the vast number of pallets being transported, enough hold space was required within the aircraft to ensure the weight could be distributed evenly.

After clearing the customs hurdle on a Saturday, the team ensured the cargo could cross the borders fluidly with all the vital documentation in hand.

Priority Freight successfully managed to secure and load a cargo plane, balancing the volume of freight and the two tonnes of materials was transported over 6,500 miles to its final destination.

Utilising Priority Freight’s trusted networks in Spain, the consignment arrived at the destination 24 hours ahead of time. This meant the automotive manufacturer was able to continue with production an entire day earlier than anticipated, saving them thousands of euros.
