International Fresh Forwarder successfully handles the first shipment of Zirconium from Zarate, Argentina to Ennore, India by the only factory approved with worldwide certifications for the manufacture of materials and alloys for the provision of nuclear materials. The receiving agent at destination was also an AON partner MCS Logistics International Private Limited.
The shipment was made in 5 container platforms known as “Mafi” which, by letter of credit requirements, needed a special type of packaging, loading and transportation. They were present at all times of loading and supervising to ensure that all parties involved carry out the cargo in accordance with the standards and protocols that the clients required for loading. They are proud of the success of this operation.
What is Zirconium?
Zirconium is a hard metal extremely resistant to corrosion. It is widely used in the chemical industry. Due to its excellent properties at elevated temperatures together with its low neutron absorption, it is used in the construction of nuclear reactors. Pure metal is also used as a coating for jet engines.
