By the term creativity, we understand, amongst other things: "the ability to solve problems through the combined use of acquired skills". How marvellous that the OTTO HAALBOOM Internationale Spedition can demonstrate characteristics which only few others possess: The ability to find ingenious solutions.
Perhaps it’s only because nobody else dares to live this unusual kind of creativity. In the process, this Haalboom service saved a huge amount of time and considerable costs for the client.
Two weeks less; that’s a lot! According to the contract, 14 days had to be saved somehow. But how? How should the giant rotating assemblies for diggers weighing 330 tonnes each, be shipped to Shanghai as quickly as possible? Break bulk cargo is usually brought leisurely to its destination by "slow boat". That is to say, leisurely in as far as the ships stop again at every port so that they can possibly get to know other rotating assemblies...
Joking aside, a solution was grappled with – the OTTO HAALBOOM Internationale Spedition asked shipping companies for container ships whether they could perhaps load the break bulk cargo with them. This unusual request was not always met with a joyful yes. But there are pioneers in every market, such as the ultimate cooperative shipping company.
Of course, unusual approaches to solutions cost a great deal of effort, cause heads to buzz and often require great powers of persuasion, in order to push through unprecedented and, mostly untested, new ideas. But the reward – beside the income, of course – is the great joy to have mastered something successfully. Quite differently from everybody else. Smart and reliable and, certainly unusual – just a typical Haalboom solution!
