FLYING HORSES FOR BAHRAIN10 Jul, 2014
It has been an exciting start for the newly formed joint venture of Banz Geodis Wilson W.L.L., Bahrain.
The international event organizer PICO (pico.com) has awarded Banz Geodis Wilson with the transportation of 12 horses from France into Bahrain and Return,
as part of the Lorenzo International Horse Show performing in Bahrain on April22nd -24th .
After extensive preparation at both ends, all events were perfectly timed to ensure the well-being of the horses during the entire transport.
The journey started in the south of France by road, followed by veterinary inspection at the Animal Lounge in Frankfurt Airport, before loading the horses into special horse stall ULD’s for uplift by freighter aircraft. Six hours later, in the early morning hours of the following day, the live cargo arrived at Bahrain International Airport. Customs and Ministry officials were on high alert to clear this shipment on top priority.
Almost 24hours en route, the horses arrived safe and sound at their final destination.
The prestige show event was hosted by the Royal Family of the Kingdom of Bahrain.
Lorenzo was performing on three consecutive days; then the horses were returned back to Frankfurt in the same professional manner.
We received congratulation on the job well done from PICO and Royal Officials in Bahrain, which we would like to share with everybody involved on this showcase project.
A special Thank You goes to Mr. Ajith Pallath, from the Banz Geodis Team, for the tremendous work he put in day and night for making this transport a success.
