Once decided the profit of the goods depending on Incoterms  and then set transport conditions, IFA has looked first for a marine carrier more reliable and which can provide the quantity of equipment (in this case: number of containers) needed for a single shipment (15 * 40' HCRF), offering the required transit times and affreightment conditions (sea freight) suitable for the volume of shipment concerned.
Taking into consideration the preparation’s demands of goods meeting tight deadlines, it has been identified the suitable carrier to ensure punctuality and precision in meeting the required deadlines requested from the heath officer who is present during the load. The carrier was also asked to be able to transport safely the 15*40 HCRF.
Moreover, the most reliable customs operator was chosen so that the customs clearance operations would be carried out with caution and precision just in time for the customs closing at the boarding.

The precise organization of the supply chain has ensured the observance of load times provided by the client avoiding porterage and extra cargo movement expenses, export detention  and export demurrage  expenses , in addition to the cost of connection to the columns in the port.

The perfect observance of deadlines and of the right issue of BL was indispensable in order to guarantee the proper negotiation of the letter of credit.
Moreover, IFA has made sure of the container's progression from the unload port to the collector's warehouse coordinating the different appointed roles given to IFA in Russia, customs operators and carrier offering, in this way, a dedicated monitoring for the delivery of goods until the establishment of the receiver.
The shipment of 15 reefer containers of foodstuff, thanks to the experience and ability of IFA, has been a success.
Organize and manage optimizing resources and deadlines in the better way possible is the MISSION of IFA

 

 

Una volta stabilita la resa delle merce in base agli Incotermse stabilite quindi le condizioni di trasporto, IFA ha cercato prima di tutto il vettore marittimo (shipping line) più affidabile in grado di fornire il quantitativo di equipment (in questo caso numero di container) necessario per un unico imbarco (15*40' HCRF), offrendo tempi di resa (transit time) richiesti e condizioni di nolo (sea freight) adeguati per il volume della spedizione in oggetto.

Viste le esigenze di approntamento merce con tempistiche ristrette, è stato individuato il vettore (trasportatore) idoneo per garantire puntualità e precisione nel rispettare le tempistiche richieste dall’ispettore sanitario presente al carico e che fosse in grado di trasportare in piena sicurezza i 15x40 hc Reefer.

Inoltre è stato scelto l’operatore doganale più affidabile affinchè le operazioni di sdoganamento venissero effettuate con cura e precisione, in tempo per la chiusura doganale all’imbarco.

L’organizzazione precisa della filiera ha consentito il rispetto degli orari di carico comunicati dal cliente evitando costi di facchinaggio e movimentazione merce extra, costi di export detention di export demurrage, oltre ai costi di allaccio alle colonnine in porto.

Il perfetto rispetto delle tempistiche e della corretta emissione di documenti di trasporto (BL) è stato indispensabile per garantire la corretta negoziazione del credito documentario.

IFA ha inoltre curato la prosecuzione del container dal porto di sbarco sino al magazzino del ricevitore coordinando le varie figure da lei incaricate in Russia, operatori doganali e vettori trasportatori, offrendo in questo modo un monitoraggio dedicato per la consegna della merce sino a stabilimento del ricevitore.

La spedizione di 15 container reefer di foodstuff, grazie all’esperienza e alla capacità di IFA è stata un successo.

Organizzare e gestire ottimizzando al meglio risorse e tempi è la MISSION di IFA.

THE EU AGAINST RUSSIAN BANS

 

The tension between the EU and Russia rises again regarding the "war of hams," because it is yet to be reached a bilateral agreement to remove the interdiction of European exports of pork previously imposed by Moscow in late January 2014.

It was actually in late January, after the identification of four Byelorussian boars affected by African swine influenza between Lithuania and Poland, that Moscow decided one-sidedness to block the pork imports from Europe.

The European Commission had already tuned to Geneva in April 2014 in order to solve the problem by bilateral discussions but the outcome was unsuccessful.

For these reason the European commission has decides to ask the WTO the intervention of a panel to solve this argue, which has an economic impact equal to 580 million euros on European exports to Russia on a total of 1, 4 billion euros per year for 750 thousand tons (almost 20% of Russian consumption, of which 3, 3% are products coming from Italy).

LA UE CONTRO I DIVIETI RUSSI

 La tensione tra la UE e la Russia sale nuovamente in merito alla "guerra dei prosciutti", poiché non è stata raggiunta ancora nessuna intesa bilaterale per rimuovere il bando delle esportazioni europee di carne di maiale imposto precedentemente da Mosca a fine Gennaio 2014.

E' proprio a fine Gennaio, successivamente all’identificazione di quattro cinghiali di origine Bielorussa affetti da febbre suina africana tra la  Lituania e la Polonia, che Mosca ha deciso unilateralmente di bloccare le importazioni di carni suine da tutta l’UE.

La commissione UE si era già  rivolta a Ginevra ad Aprile 2014, al fine di risolvere la problematica per tramite di  discussioni bilaterali, ma senza alcun risultato.

Quindi,  ha deciso di chiedere al WTO l’intervento di un panel per risolvere questa disputa il cui impatto economico pesa circa 580 milioni di euro sulle esportazioni europee verso la Russia  su un montefatturato di  1,4 miliardi di Euro annui per 750 mila tonnellate (pari circa al 20% dei consumi russi, di cui il 3,3% circa di prodotti provenienti dall'Italia).

Among the different countries whit which Italy trades and exports, Russia is doubtless the main commerce for Italian export.

RUSSIAN WAGONS ON ROLLER COASTERS

In Russia after many decades has ended the state monopoly in the railway sector: the market has been opened to private operators.

Today, it is divided among more than 2000 companies that operate in a market which constitutes 85% of trade flows across the country. 

The Kiel Canal (Nord-Ostsee-Kanal - NOK) is a 98 km long channel that links the North Sea (Brunsbüttel) to the Baltic Sea (Kiel-Holtenau).
An average of 280 nautical miles (460 km) is saved by using the Kiel Canal instead of going around the Jutland Peninsula.

EXPRESS TRAIN

For IFA customer satisfaction is essential, even when the demands made are far from trivial: send six crates of about 45 tons each 17mt in length, 2.39mt in width and 3.04mt in height to be delivered at the same time as 10 X 40-ft containers loaded with spare parts all of which needed to travel and arrive in Murmansk, more than 4,500 km from Italy.

Delivery time to destination was set by the customer at 20/25 days.
The solution chosen for economy and reliability, regardless of the time of year, was the railway.

After informing the representatives of the Italian and foreign railways of the sizes of the load a train, specifically dedicated for this transport, was made available.
At the Ukrainian border (where the goods were transshipped from European wagons to Russian wagons) a train carriage was added to carry the escort personnel up to the final destination.

IFA focused on the need to speed up transport and transit, whilst ensuring a problem free journey effecting the delivery of the goods documentation directly to the receiver.

Soddisfare un cliente per IFA è fondamentale, anche quando la richiesta di quotazione è tutt'altro che banale: spedire 6 casse di circa 45 tonnellate cadauna con dimensioni Lunghezza 17,00 x Larghezza 2,39 x Altezza 3,04 mt. oltre a 10 container da 40 piedi carichi di spare parts che devono viaggiare e arrivare a Murmansk, oltre 4.500 km di distanza dall'Italia contemporaneamente.
