Around 18 months ago we made possible what many people said was impossible, by shipping a magnet from New York via Best in the Netherlands and then onwards to a hospital in Barcelona in two days. It left America on Friday, and was in the hospital by Monday morning. We set ourselves an incredibly tough task, but with a lot of planning we were able to align many teams and get the task achieved without any complications.
The first step was to simply to ensure the magnets arrived on time. This meant getting it from upstate New York, through John F. Kennedy International Airport, and over to Best. We then had to cool the magnet down and check every single element was in place to ensure it was prepared for this particular client. Typically, this process requires three days of work, but we managed to complete everything in just eight hours.
After that, everything had to be signed off and double checked, and only then could we think about transporting it to Barcelona. We had to ship through the whole of France, which required three different drivers to ensure it could be traveling continually. We got the magnet there in perfect condition, and even earlier than scheduled.
