Quitters can't be helpers.
Communication is essential, especially in regions of the world where there is limited accessibility due to unrest and war. You can only overcome these limits with lots of experience and fearless creativity.
Such courage doesn't come from just any importer or exporter. In such regions, there is a necessity for extensive regional knowledge, possibly by local agents, who can manage cultural as well as infrastructure intricacies.
So, it was not by accident that the following "problem case" landed on the CEO's desk at OTTO HAALBOOM Internationale Spedition. The job: transportation and construction of a solar complex in Mali, Africa.
The promised photo-voltaic complex that is very important for the area of Mopti in Mali (ca 300 km outside of Timbuktu) was in danger of not arriving at its destination, due to increasing unrest.
The competition said the job was too unsafe, too uncertain, and too unreliable.
But we picked up where the others failed because of our familiarity with the country. We were able to offer smart solutions. In this case, it wasn't the approach to the transport problem, but the extensive ability to consult and mediate within the West African region. Therefore, once more "to Timbuktu" for us! The sensitive modules were shipped to Africa via airplane.
At the promised time, the photo-voltaic complex is now in Mopti. Haalboom's own specialists delivered it without any complications.
It's no accident that Haalboom's mantra is "No job is too complicated." We prove it time and time again. This slogan is not only for our clients, but also for the people of this world that depend on our commitment.
