ERIE, PA (May 5, 2017) - Logistics Plus Inc., a leading worldwide provider of transportation, logistics and supply chain solutions, is proud to announce it was awarded first place in the 2017 Breakbulk "Into the Wild" Photo Contest. Logistics Plus was presented with the award at the Breakbulk Europe 2017 conference which took place April 24-26 in Antwerp, Belgium.
The winning photograph, taken and submitted by the Logistics Plus Turkey division, was entitled "Winter Is Coming" and depicts a unique perspective of a steep tank being ocean transported. The cargo was being shipped from Istanbul to a factory in Orhangazi, Turkey. Due to snowy conditions and other factors, the cargo was uniquely transported on a modified car ferry.
Six times a year, Breakbulk hosts themed photo and video contests around a particular aspect of moving breakbulk and project cargo. The contests are open to all industry participants. Winners are selected by visitors to the website, so all participating companies are encouraged to get out the vote among their employees and friends. The winning entries can be viewed online at http://www.breakbulk.com/into-the-wild-standings/.
"The project cargo in this photo was an adventure and another example of our passion for excellence," said Bahadir Erdil, Global Projects Director for Logistics Plus. "We drove through the heavy snow until the nearest shipyard to find an available ferry. There was no available barges on those dates so, as a solution, we found a car carrier ferry and cut some parts off the ferry to create a safe loading and discharging operation. We are thankful to Breakbulk and its constituency for recognizing our photo in this year's contest."
