Fevzi Gandur Shipping Agency – Istanbul, Turkey

Interview with

Ms. Bianca Namer Sales & Marketing Manager

Please tell our readers about the history of the Fevzi Gandur Shipping Agency and elaborate on the ownership. The Fevzi Gandur Group of companies has a long history as a shipping agency and in logistics. Our experiIzmir, Mersin, Gemlik and Bursa. Agency activities were extended to other neighbouring countries. We have the expertise in rendering our agency services to Container, Dry-Bulk, Tanker, Reefer and Cruise Operators/Owners. The Fevzi Gandur Shipping Agency is a member of Multiport, the largest Ship Agency Network. We have and still represent a number of world class and still are part of the following liners either as Agents or as JV; • Jugolinija / Croatia Lines (Break-Bulk & Container Agency) • Costa Container Lines (Container Agency) • United Arab Shipping Co (Container, JV) • China Shipping Container Lines (Container, JV) • Wan Hai Lines (Container Agency)

• Ecuadorian Line (Reefer, Agency) • Fred Olsen (Cruise, On Sight Excursion Agency) managed by his sons, Mr. Cemil Gandur and Mr. Ali Gandur. We are a family company with strong values, managed as a corporation with an excellent reputation in the marketplace.

Do you have experience in handling project cargoes? If so, could you provide us with a few examples?

Turkey has a huge number of both shipping agents and freight forwarders. How do you ensure that you stand out in the crowd as the one to be chosen? Over the last 25 years, we have added Freight Forwarding, Land Transportation, Logistics and Distribution activities to our existing Ship Agency services. These include: project cargo shipment; contract logistics; doparts for vessels; intermodal services to Europe; collection & warehouse services of export cargo via international haulage as FTL & LTL; import & export air cargo operations at the new Istanbul Airport Warehouse;

We have the full capability of moving cargo in every transportation mode: air, sea and land. We can combine and provide multimodal shipment to our customers from one supplier—which is us. Providing all these services separately or in combined form facilitates the customers job which eventually makes us a preferred carrier/service provider in the market. We pride ourselves on our superior customer service and sophisticated IT systems that ensure customers will have constant and up-to-date information about their shipments.

Tell our readers about your main business currently. Actively, we provide our Agency Services to the following Owners: • ZPMC Heavy Lift and Semi-Submersible Vessels • Fred Olsen Cruise Lines • Various Navy Vessels and Tramp Owners Our NVOCC partners are: • Sarjak Container Lines (Shipment of out of Gauge Project Cargo in SOC 20ft, 40ft Special Equipment as Open Top, Hard Top, Flat Rack) • Bulkglobal Logistics (Shipment of Chemicals in 20ft Iso-tanks) • Nepal Shipping Lines • Fairmacs Multiline pvt

Can you provide services in all Turkish ports? How about transshipment to Iraq—is that also possible for you to arrange? Yes, we can provide agency services at all Turkish ports, including the transshipment to/fm Iraq via Mersin and Iskenderun, FTL as well as Project Cargo.

Turkey during this pandemic? We strongly believe that every crisis brings various opportunities, and within this aspect, we grow each day. Due to our IT backbone, we were already equipped to handle the sudden disruption in the business environ-

The current business environment in Turkey is slowly getting back to normal. We’ve seen a resumption of project cargo movements and a general increase in cargo movement across all modes of transport. The situation is still not 100% back to normal, especially due to disruption in liner services, huge increases in container year and the situation is getting better day by day.

What are your future plans? Logistics is in the midst of a technology-driven revolution. We believe that companies which have robust digital capabilities, keep up with the data collected at every phase of the shipment, and utilize these to manage cost control, quotation preparation and eventually keep the customers aware of their cargo whereabouts, will not only help to facilitate our job but customer satisfaction as well. Business online is essential to follow up; however keeping in close communication with the customers will always be a must. For this purpose, we are giving our utmost support to our IT and HR departments. Our focus is to be able to solve our customer’s supply chain requirements, and therefore, we will be expanding will be receiving special focus. We will keep on concentrating our extensive experience in dealing with variety of principals (Charterers, Owners, Operators), in both Turkey and International shipping which will enhance the Fevzi Gandur Shipping Agency to a high level of acknowledgement from a multitude of clients around the world within the aspect of Project Cargo Handling. How is it best for our readers to get in touch with you? We will be pleased to welcome inquiries regarding Shipments of Out of Gauge Cargo in 20ft, 40ft Special Equipment as Open Top, Hard Top, Flat Rack and also for Big Project Cargoes through: info@seahorsenet. com &

Mauritania has, in addition to the desert, other considerable tourist potential such as the Banc d´Arguin nature reserve. Banc d´Arguin is a national park that has attracted many visitors since its inception. It conserves swampy areas and shallow coastal waters.

Project One Logistics – Houston, Texas, USA

Interview with

Ms. Anne Schaeddel Owner & Managing Director

Can you tell us a little about the history, background, and ownership of Project One. I founded Project One over 2 years ago, and I am the Owner & Managing Director of the company. My idea is to focus on the customer and their project needs with tailor-made supply chains. I have been working in logistics basically my whole life and have experience from the ship owner side as well as freight forwarding. Our area gives so many opportunities, and I love to put the entire project together – turnkey or door to door.

Our favorite tool for showing our project portfolio and the work we do is LinkedIn, where we share not only videos and pictures, but also informative links about the logistics industry.

We are working with several steel plants in the US importing heavy parts for their new plants and exporting coils worldwide. We also do Oil & Gas projects and transport LNG tanks, compressors, and steel structures for not share any information.

works, and we are happy to be a part of them. We do know a lot of companies personally due our long-term, established relationships before joining these networks.

The biggest key to project logistics is preplanning, and we love to do it. Having the accurate dimensions, weight, drawings, TOS, lifting points, and sometimes pictures in hand, can give us the chance to plan as accurately as possible.

R-Logistic – Monaco

Interview with

Mr. Joaquin Gomez Yanci Group Deputy CEO

First of all, Joaquin please tell us about the history of R-Logistic and the current ownership of the comit all? R-Logistic is a subsidiary of R-Logitech – the infrastructure & logistics division of Monaco Resources Group, an international specialist in natural resources with a strong presence on the African continent. R-Logistic saw its beginnings at the end of 2017 with the acquisition of some agencies resulting from the fall of Necotrans Group. This was a strategic action which consisted of stepping into a strategic group of countries from which we launched our solid expansion, already being present in 12 countries (Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Republic of Congo, Senegal and Togo. R-Logitech also adds a presence in the domain of port activities via NECTAR, which is present in many Afadded value. Likewise, our sister company EUROPORTS, specialized in port management in Europe and China with more than 40 terminals under concession, has complemented our multimodal services force since 2019. Regarding our internal organization, we have articulated a genuine model little seen in the sector, consisting of two Co-CEOs based in the West (Senegal) and Centre (Togo) regions, so that decision-making power remains very close to where the bulk of our activities are carried out. This allows us to not only give an immediate

My role is subject to the deputy General Directorate with the pilotage of a team of support functions distributed between Paris and Monaco. We believe in a structure based on local potential. Our more than 600 employees are massively local personnel that we carefully select and take care of for a dynamization of the potential that this continent brings to the world.

handling cargoes to and from? The experience acquired thanks to the presence of the Group on the African continent allowed R-Logistic to set up innovative and integrated systems in terms of multimodal transport solutions, by supporting its customers in their core businesses. R-Logistic operates through a network of agencies on the African continent to establish innovative and integrated multimodal transport solutions, supporting its clients in their core businesses, including mining oil and gas, industrial, agricultural, commodity trading and military logistics support. The company provides services to diverse organisations including NGOs, retail, and energy sector businesses. The domination of Asian origins in terms of PROJECT CARGO is and will be predominant, with China, South Korea and India being the most common countries of origin for this type of cargo, especially in the Belgium, Italy and Spain is highly present. It should be noted, as a result of the events that occurred after COVID-19, that there is an increasingly present demand for goods from closer countries such as those in Europe due to the explosion in maritime freight

prices, an opportunity that our European partners are taking full advantage of. Let’s see for how long the feast will continue to be served!

Do you have experience in handling project cargoes, and if so could you elaborate for our readers by giving them a few examples of projects you have handled. After the acquisition of the aforementioned EX NECOTRANS agencies, the divisions of both PROJECTS in this regard, giving rise to a new organization located only in Africa and only for Africa, and turning our development plans to strategic partnerships not only with end customers but especially to intermediaries such logistical support for the development of their activities.

uniform rules or is it more talk than real action and progress? Despite being, without any doubt, an initiative with great value for the entire African continent, I personally a continent of opportunities, one in which there is still room for inventiveness and ideas. Unfortunately, adlanguages used, and government systems that are still very young or lacking certain stability. It should be remembered that the “EUROPE of the 27” began only with a handful of states that had already gathered enough socio-economic ties to allow this link. I have implemented many processes throughout my professional life, and I believe that an exercise with a smaller number of countries could be the trigger for the addition of other states as the project evolves. As it happens in process implementations, it is necessary to go through a test phase. Trying to reach an agreement between more than 50 countries seems, to me, an exercise political and economic support of great economies, would open a great opportunity for this project.

why? For me there is really no better or worse. In each country, there are particularities, and if you propose to adapt, there will be no great challenges. Everything resides in your power of adaptability and management of expectations.

What makes R-Logistic stand out in your opinion? Why choose you?

always remain faithful to its vision: in Africa and for Africa. It is vitally important to mention again that R-LOGISTIC does not intend to be present in countries historically positioned in decision-making as far as projects

partner in the African continent, but also a partner that will never betray you by taking advantage of the information coming from the decision-making centres. I believe that many international groups have failed on this less on long-term partnerships. We believe that great stories are not written with just one hand and that unity is strength. Why choose us? We are developing a new project, giving opportunities to African potential, growing exponenbecome commercially. The fact of not being widely supported by agencies outside of Africa or of not counting selves until the last consequence.

We have seen a slowdown in maritime volumes caused by the exacerbated rise in freight rates, but this has visible. Secondly, due to our authentic positioning on the concept “the alternative” (since customers asked for something new and genuine, people with courage and new ideas) which has had a very positive impact on the conquest of saturated markets. Finally, but not least due to our rapid growth in projects related to peacekeeping

nent? Of course, the infrastructures have become very small with the exponential growth of large African cities and capitals. The investment is still far from what the continent really needs. Something similar happens with the material, and it is still very common to see special transport material being imported from time to time for

In 2007, I had the great pride and privilege to start working for Maersk, undoubtedly the best logistics school in the world, to which I owe everything I am today. Since I was a child, my dream was always to know the world, and with Maersk, I was able to work in places such as Spain, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Morocco, Mauritania, India, Senegal, Burkina Faso and some other African countries, becoming a logistics specialist in Africa over time. of what they hoped would be the NEW ALTERNATIVE to African logistics. It was very hard to leave the MAERSK family, and in fact, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to stop being “BLUE” in my heart. Yet, in life, you have to have courage and follow your dreams. When you work in a large multinational, you live within to explore many more facets and be closer to the centre of decisions. The adventure continues!
