Project Description

The client came to Vapour Logistics via recommendation, and although it was challenging, we found a solutions via direct drive collection from Germany to Paris, adhering to strict ADR rules from the supplier, and acceptance by Air France Paris to Lagos, having obtained end user certification and permission to operate from Air France in Lagos and Air France in Paris.
Being part of the AOG GROUP – we know that when there is a will there is a way! Whilst many others turned down this opportunity, we thrive off helping those with even the most complex airfreight needs.

With thanks to our partners at Exaciel France, we found a solution and also have one extremely happy client! A job well done by all involved.
