Over Memorial Day weekend, Green Worldwide’s Miami and Houston branches worked together to charter a Boeing 767 Freighter to Panama – an oil tanker was in dire need of an additive for petroleum fuels. Our Houston office received the phone call Saturday morning at 10:45 Central that product was needed in Panama for Monday morning. By 2:45 PM we had the solution. No commercial aircraft would be able to meet the deadline so a charter solution was provided. To add a little twist, the cargo being Haz Mat had to be re-packed to comply with IATA regulations and we would need our Haz Mat packer to inspect and label prior to pickup.

Our New York City branch has been handling joint shipments of beer from the United States for some time now, but this week they had the opportunity to do something pretty special.
Green Worldwide NYC moved three separate air shipments from three different breweries in the Northeast to Copenhagen for Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen, a beer festival celebrating some of the best breweries from around the globe.
The three US Breweries that they were privileged to ship for work to create some of the world’s top 100 beverages. One of the beers they shipped is currently ranked seventh in the world.
This past December, we helped move a very expensive, and very cool-looking motorcycle from Alabama, United States, to Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The motorcycle is built entirely of the 6061 aerospace billet aluminum, and, unfortunately, our export team could not take the motorcycle for a test drive prior to it’s departure to Dubai.

Green Worldwide has just moved two Cookers weighing 85,000 pounds (each!) from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, to a Biogas facility in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.
At 2,950 miles, the move took the loads across nearly the entire width of Canada. The massive cargo was loaded in Rotterdam on two 40’FR and were transloaded to flatbed equipment at Halifax Port. The two units arrived in Lethbridge on December, 3rd after 9 days on the road and under some snow storms.

A few weeks ago, our Los Angeles office and our French partner worked together to coordinate a shipment of Boing 777 Landing Gear shipped from Goodyear, Arizona, USA to Paris, France.
This shipment of cargo involved non-stackable oversized crates requiring five full deck positions on a 747. These large parts were collected with two flat bed rigs on Thursday September 29th, tendered to the airline on the 30th, and arrived at Charles De Gaulle Airport in Paris on October 2nd.
It has been Green Worldwide’s interest to become more involved in handling aerospace commodities and this is a great step in moving forward with this business vertical. We thank everyone involved in this endeavor and look forward to being of more assistance in the future!
