Logistics provider Move One recently completed a challenging shipment from the US to Mongolia for a global manufacturer of industrial tools and equipment. The company entrusted Move One with the delivery of oversized cylinders, containers, and batteries to serve Mongolia’s rapidly growing mining industry. The purchase order included three shipments – normal container loads, individually loaded break bulk shipments by sea, and a dangerous goods (DGR) shipment of lithium batteries by air. As there are no direct flights from the US to the Mongolian city of Ulaanbaatar, Move One said it secured a flight to Beijing, China for the DGR shipment of lithium batteries. But as land transportation was the only option to forward the cargo to its final destination, Move One coordinated the arrival of the batteries with the other freight arriving via ocean and consolidated all shipments for a single convoy of land transportation. With some of the world’s largest untapped reserves of gold, coal and uranium, Mongolia is a growing market for specialist logistics companies.
