Climate Control

Typical of the work of our Freight Forwarding Department, the first leg of the journey of this crated air conditioning system from the UK to South Korea was probably the hardest to arrange, due to the height of the cargo. Measuring 6 metres top to bottom, the truck and it's load had to negotiate a carefully planned and closely controlled route to the port of Felixstowe from where it was shipped to Busan.

Ultimately destined for installation on a deep sea exploration rig working in the Pacific Ocean, it didn't quite break the record for the largest air-con unit carried by Fast Forward - that distinction goes to a system specifically designed by a French manufacturer to fit into one of our top-loading 13.6 metre trailers, and which now resides on top of an office block in London's Docklands.
