UK-based freight company Global Freight Services has managed one of its most extraordinary exports to date on behalf of client Rebate Conservatories.
Rebate, which designs and manufactures imaginative timber conservatories for a range of customers, needed to ship its latest project – a bespoke English orangery – to the home of an Indian property developer in Bangalore.
It was the first structure to ever be exported by Rebate and involved transporting steel, timber, and glass across thousands of miles in two separate shipments, a larger 40ft container, followed by a smaller 20ft container a few months later.
The containers departed Felixstowe for arrival at ICD Bangalore.
Construction of the 81.25 sq m orangery has now been completed.
Anton Gunter, managing director of Global Freight Services, said: “Without doubt this was one of the most extraordinary exports that we’ve been involved in on behalf of a client. It was almost akin to transporting a small house to the other side of the world.
“As a new to export client, it was key for us to simplify the process as much as possible for Rebate Conservatories to make the experience as straightforward and as easy as possible. We were delighted that the entire project ran very smoothly without any major challenges.
“Our client has since shared some photos of the orangery in its new location, and it looks tremendous. We very much hope that Rebate will consider using our services in future for any other projects which might involve exporting across the globe.”
