EKF fly the extra mile over Christmas
Like Santa, the EKF Diagnostics logistics team took to the skies over the Christmas holidays. Faced with the problem of sending 160,000 tubes of PrimeStore MTM to a customer in Ireland with a tight deadline and the uncertainty around border control due to the Brexit negotiations, the team at EKF’s Barleben facility charted an aircraft and flew 18 pallets directly to Dublin Airport.
Thanks to the efficiency of our team and their colleagues at DB Schenker the consignment reached Dublin within three hours, ready to be collected by our distributor, Syntec.
PrimeStore does not require refrigeration or any special transit conditions so chartering an aircraft was a practical solution to a potentially tricky problem. And what’s more our General Manager, Steffen Borlich, could pretend to be an air traffic controller for the day!
