We perform both import and export operations. For many customers we import the raw material, and then, after the production process, we export the finished products.
"We had growths on all types of transport. 'Time critical' transports have been up 5 times over 2017. 99% of these shipments are for the automotive industry. There are super urgent transports, where every minute counts for our customers, where every minute of delay would mean enormous costs. We have transported from small quantities of a few hundred grams to complete airplanes with the merchandise of a single customer " - Catalin Putineanu, Managing Partner IB Cargo.
Sea clusters (LCLs) have grown because time has been a very important factor for customers and they have not waited to fill entire containers with cargo, but have preferred smaller and more frequent shipments. We have 9 weekly grouping services, we are practically the largest NVOCC & Consolidator in Romania, working directly with our customers. Through the maritime grouping service (LCL) a customer can bring from 1 cubic meter of cargo from any location directly to Constanta, and from there we deconsolidate and deliver it to the client's door.
The road transport has grown both domestically and Europeanly, on industries such as automotive, agriculture, electronics, FMCG, and fashion.
For 2019 we are optimistic, we estimate an increase of 15%. We plan to invest in people and tools to improve the experience of our clients.
