PGL Transports Flight Simulator from Airport to Airport

Nothing exemplifies the challenges involved in the shipping and logistics of large, sensitive equipment better than the crating and delivery of aircraft simulators. All flight simulator moves start with a detailed bid that covers the steps and expenses necessary to accomplish a move of this nature. The extensive experience that PGL has in moving this type of equipment leads to a comprehensive bid that includes the communication and visibility that is so crucial to successful delivery. Once on the job, PGL can supply the rigging equipment to the site along with the operators and credentials necessary to perform in a controlled environment for the crating and loading processes. Crating begins with engineer consultation to create a fully-customized solution that is unique for each aircraft. Special attention is paid to load limitations for both width and height, as well as accommodations for these sensitive parts. Everything is tightly packed to avoid shifting, and heat wrapped in a 32 mil poly to prevent moisture intrusion. Everything is tarped rail-to-rail with no exposed marine wrap to keep the avionics safe. Throughout the process, PGL keeps you informed every step of the way. For international moves, our partnership with TALA, The Aerospace Logistics Alliance, offers the transparency and peace of mind necessary for the task. From rigging and crating in a controlled airport environment, to successful delivery, PGL has the experience to go beyond 3PL with full-service delivery on a global scale.

PGL Moves Aircraft Seats for Exhibition

Going beyond traditional shipping and logistics, PGL is your partner for full-service delivery and execution. In conjunction with our overseas partner, we moved 6 crates of aircraft seats from the UK to the US for exhibition. Via air freight, we cleared the shipment through US customs, collected crates with a box truck at DFW International Airport and delivered to our Dallas warehouse. A hot shot box van was then loaded and delivered to the final exhibition space. Once arrived at the destination, our White Glove service team set up the show room and removed the empty crates for storage. After the event, the original crates were returned to the floor, the display dismantled and the seats were repackaged. The freight was tendered back to the airline at DFW for the trip back to the United Kingdom where it was cleared through customs and returned to the customer. From Europe to Texas via air and land, to the careful uncrating, setup and re-crating and trip home, PGL has the experience to go beyond 3PL with full-service delivery on a global scale.

PGL partners with NYC Healthcare Heroes

 

Starting in April 2020, PGL was honored to partner with the Red Cross in the new NYC Healthcare Heroes initiative, assisting in the distribution of over 100,000 bags of food, household supplies and over the counter medicine to the city’s brave healthcare professionals. This effort included delivery to 63 New York hospitals over the course of 2 months. 110 vehicles were used, leading to final mile deliveries to all 5 boroughs in NYC from Philadelphia arriving by 6:00am for distribution. As with any project of this magnitude, communication with our partners was critical. With the help of Aramark and FruitGuys, coupled with the passionate Red Cross volunteers, we were able to accomplish this monumental task. PGL is proud to leverage the technology and people that help our clients move their business forward to assist the Healthcare Heroes that are working so hard to see us through the Covid-19 Pandemic. Let’s move forward, together.

Small Parcel Savings Through DHL Partnership

International air freight shipments represent an area of savings for both importers and exporters, but establishing weight breaks poses a challenge for many companies.

For smaller international shipments including samples, prototypes, components, and finished goods, at what point does your company ship parcel vs. air freight through your forwarder?

At what point do minimum charges from your freight forwarder make sense based on the shipment weight and trade lane?Typically, there are four pricing components to any door to door movement. These components include origin pickup and handling charges, air freight charges, customs clearance charges, as well as destination delivery charges.  Your forwarder may or may not itemize these charges on your invoice, but these charges make up the quote of any heavyweight international air shipment.  Also, since the air freight charge is typically affected by pricing weight breaks, it’s important to take into consideration that minimums may also be applied to each component.  These minimums have a substantial impact on determining whether parcel or air freight is the most economical routing decision.

Through our partnership with DHL Express, and as a DHL Authorized Reseller, PGL now has the ability to perform a weight break analysis in order to advise our clients on the most economical method of shipping international air freight.

PGL Parcel Delivery Vehicles

By performing this in-depth analysis, a routing guide can be established to both improve transit times and reduce cost.
Often, PGL’s analysis generates up to a 25% savings through direct cost improvements and suggests improved routing decisions, which allows our clients to become more competitive in today’s business climate.
PGL, one of the only international freight forwarders with a competitive lightweight and heavyweight international air freight solution, is uniquely positioned to assist our clients with these cost saving measures.

Through DHL Express’ door-to-door system, PGL’s international parcel solution includes customs clearance at much lower rates than offered through a traditional air freight service.

Once an analysis is complete, PGL creates a DHL Express account number for our clients under our heavily discounted pricing umbrella.

Established in 1969 as an international parcel carrier, DHL Express has the largest and most comprehensive parcel network in the world. Their door-to-door service is available in over 220 countries and territories, and boasts some of the fastest transit times in the industry. The relationship between PGL and DHL represents a tremendous value for our clients. Solutions can be customized and scaled whether you are a small startup or a Fortune 1000 company.
