DHL Global Forwarding recently transported a unique integrated water purification vehicle from Israel to India. The first-of-its-kind vehicle from G.A.L. Water Technologies produces high-quality drinking water from contaminated water within seconds and was a gift from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the course of Netanyahu’s first visit to India. DHL Global Forwarding Israel was assigned for the transportation and shipped the sensitive and high profile cargo from Caesarea to New Delhi via Tel Aviv and Leipzig by plane.
“Transporting sensitive goods requires highly specialized expertise in logistics combined with fast and reliable management of all stations along the shipping process. We designed a unique solution for G.A.L. Water Technologies to cover all aspects involved in the handling of such technically complex and high-profile cargo,” states Dganit Edelstein, Business Performance Management, DHL Global Forwarding Israel.
G.A.L. Water Technologies chose DHL Global Forwarding Israel from all freight forwarders in Israel, trusting in their professional and high-level service in the handling of delicate freight. After the cargo was transported from its origin Caesarea to Tel Aviv airport, it was re-loaded on a special airline pallet and started its journey to New Delhi, India.
The shipment, a water purification jeep, can process up to 20,000 liters of seawater and 100,000 liters of muddy, contaminated water of any source per day, producing drinking water according to the World Health Organization’s water standards. It therefore finds use in natural disasters like floods and earthquakes and serves remote communities.
“With DHL Global Forwarding, we have found the right forwarder for the transport of our GAL-Mobile vehicle, understanding and honoring the complexity behind it,” asserts Sigal Levy Deputy CEO of G.A.L. Water Technologies. “We chose DHL as the best option for our sensitive shipment and we look forward to continue working with them in the future as we are more than satisfied with the smooth and professional handling.”
