Snappy Service for a Snappy Client from Lonrho Logistics
May 2015 saw Lonrho Logistics, together with Lufthansa Airlines facilitate the transport and export of a live crocodile!
Sobek, the 35 year old, 5m long, 600kg Nile crocodile, was transported from Izintaba Farm Crocodile (PTY) LTD, north of Pretoria in South Africa, to Krokkodille Zoo in Eskilstrup in Denmark.
The project took months of planning with constant communication between Bernhard Snyman from Lonrho Logistics, Izintaba, Lufthansa and Krokodille Zoo. The project also saw Lonrho Logistics strictly abiding by the rules set out by IATA’s (International Air Transport Association) Live Animal Regulations.
The safety and comfort of the animal was of utmost importance throughout the entire project. To ensure this, all parties took into consideration, amongst other things, the design of the crate (which was custom built by Krokkodille Zoo staff who were in SA as part of the project), the temperature of the cargo hold, and even when he was last fed.
The team from Lonrho Logistics wear their hearts on their sleeve!
On October 12, The Lonrho Logistics ORTIA (O.R. Tambo International Airport) team showed their support for the Sun Flower Fund by taking part in National Bandana Day 2015.
The Sun Flower Fund is a South African based charity that raises awareness around bone marrow stem cell donation, and stem cell use in cancer treatment, particularly leukaemia. The organisation also raises funds through various events, such as National Bandana Day which go towards blood donor testing, and the expansion of the SAMBR (South Africa Bone Marrow Registry). The day has also become significant in supporting those living with cancer, as it symbolises the many sufferers worldwide who have lost their hair due chemotherapy and wear bandanas on a daily basis.
