The customer urgently required medical equipment containing compressed gas and other items that were unsuitable for shipment by air express delivered to a yacht services company in Portofino. SpeedLink was contacted in light of our reputable European express courier services, to supply a rapid European direct drive in order to reach the handler in Portofino to coincide with the yacht calling in to resupply. After our same day courier service specialists were called, shipment was collected and driven direct to the destination, bypassing Switzerland to avoid any delays related to transit/customs clearance en route. Consignment arrived well ahead of deadline and was included in resupply of the vessel later in the day.
