Growing together at Breakbulk Europe 2019

Growing together at Breakbulk Europe 2019

Breakbulk Europe Exhibition is something we look forward to every year. It’s a great opportunity for the logistics industry and breakbulk & projects cargo specialists to meet up and spend exciting time exchanging ideas, getting to know each other and strengthening connections.

It offers a variety of networking possibilities, educational forums and business opportunities. Walking along the halls you can engage with like-minded professionals and visit their booths to get to know their brand and services better. Have a look at the video from Breakbulk Europe 2019:

Tuscor Lloyds has been attending the exhibition for many successful years and have always found the event a perfect platform to express our unusual & creative approach to freight forwarding.

We’ve been known to surprise our visitors with some unconventional booths, however, this year was even more special to us thanks to our 25th anniversary! 

Being in the industry for a quarter of the century already, we have moved the most demanding cargo all over the world. Collaborating with our customers to help them with their logistics challenges we always believed that partnership and focusing on the best assets of each party allows both businesses to grow together.

Efficiency and skills in logistics can be ‘bolted on’ without the need to invest time and money expanding the existing workforce.

Why buy a bigger house when you can extend it?

That’s why this year we invited attendees to extend their companies with our logistics expertise and concentrate on what they are good at – building a successful business.

 

Have a look at the gallery on the right to see more photos from the event!

At Breakbulk Europe 2019, we welcomed our guests in the beautiful pergola full of greenery, symbolizing growth and extension. 

It was a pleasure to spend time together in this cosy environment. As the world of shipping and logistics is getting more and more digitalised and corporate, we enjoy bringing some family-style atmosphere to the expo to remind everyone that in the end, it is all about people!

We’d like everyone to remember that at Tuscor Lloyds there is always a friendly face to talk to, and through teamwork, we manage to solve the most bizarre shipping riddles.

Our guests loved the easy-to-care-for plants they were presented with at the stand and we hope they will keep reminding them how we can grow together!

During Breakbulk Europe 2019, we had a great pleasure to take part in a project ‘the Women of Breakbulk Europe’, which aimed to promote the incredible women in the project cargo industry. Our Business Development Manager, Emma Fitton talked to Leslie Meredith about her experiences:

We hoped you enjoyed visiting our pergola,

and we look forward to growing together!

We found this year’s expo to be a huge success, meeting all the fantastic people and building new relationships. It was a pleasure to celebrate our 25th anniversary accompanied by our friends and partners. We hope you enjoyed Breakbulk Europe 2019 and we look forward to Breakbulk Europe 2020. 

Get in touch with our specialists to talk about ‘extending your business’!

See you next year!

 

Thank you!

Your shipping partner in Europe | INTERMODAL SOUTH AMERICA 2019

Meet our Brazilian market expert Suellen Higino during Intermodal South America and learn about the benefits of having a trusted shipping partner in Europe!

 

This year Tuscor Lloyds celebrates 25 years of business, the same anniversary as The Intermodal Exhibition.
Our professionals have been attending the trade show for the last 5 years and we are happy to share this special occasion this year.

The Intermodal Expo creates space for professionals from the transportation industry to meet, exchange ideas, and explore new possibilities. It allows talented people to share their experiences and come up with the new solutions thanks to the collaboration and networking.

At Tuscor Lloyds, we believe collaboration is the key to a successful business. Thanks to the advances in transportation and communication technology, we are now living in the world of globalization and worldwide integration that allows businesses and individuals to flourish on a large scale.

However, while being engrossed in the opportunities that came with globalisation, we tend to forget what led us here in the first place.  It’s the willingness to share, collaborate and use the collective skill set of the global community. Exhibitions like Intermodal allow professionals from all around the world to connect and create new relationships for the benefit of all.

 

Being Brazilian living and working in Europe, I had the possibility to learn a lot about both of these worlds. Taking the best of each I connect their strengths to become an understanding and flexible partner between the European and Brazilian markets, and provide the best solutions to our customers.

- Suellen Higino, Business Development

For the last 25 years, Tuscor Lloyds has been working with many companies in Brazil as their shipping partner in Europe. Thanks to our global network of agents, long experience in shipping and creative & innovative approach to transportation, we provide great solutions to the Brazilian market.

Women in Maritime – What does it mean to be a woman in shipping?

Women in Maritime – What does it mean to be a woman in shipping?

What does it mean to be a woman in maritime?

 

The shipping industry has many faces. Depending on previous experiences, various pictures can come to you head when thinking of women in maritime.

Is she a tireless seafarer, fighting the elements on deck? Being perceived as a sensitive human being she proves we can be both delicate and strong. Maybe that’s being a human – regardless of gender.

Maybe she wears a suit instead of the overalls? In this male-dominated industry, she leads the meetings and negotiations to provide the most impossible solutions to her clients, spreading their product all around the world.

Or is she the one at the desk, always focused and quiet? Her dedication creates strategies that allow moving oversized cargo between the most remote destinations.

And maybe she is a captain of the ship or a CEO of the shipping company, and her empathy allows her to solve problems of the people before they become problems of the company.

Maybe she’s none of them.

Maybe she isn’t aware, these opportunities exist.

Or maybe she does, but the world convinced her it’s not the place for a girl.

 

Maybe she’s none of them.

We believe – she could be all of them.

We need all those strong personalities to step up and lead others by example, sharing own stories, battles and successes. 

- Marta Kuzma, Marketing & Communications

 

Along with all the maybes, come many dilemmas and questions.

We decided to address them with some of the great women working at Tuscor Lloyds!

What does it mean to be a woman working in shipping or logistics?

Being a woman in maritime is nothing else than being a woman the way you already know it. Logistics is in our nature! If you can coordinate your home, kids/plants/pets, work, exercise, love life and still find time for a coffee with friends or polishing your nails, you can do Shipping! – Suellen Higino

 As a woman, there is nothing better than attending a conference or a meeting where it is mainly male dominated and holding your own. We are seeing more of this now and I really hope this continues as we need more women in the industry. – Emma Fitton

When I started my career in this industry over 10 years ago, being a ‘woman in maritime’ was somehow unusual. Nowadays, there are more and more of us and we need to stop seeing this sort of career as something uncommon or challenging for women. This is the first step to make significant changes, changing the perspective. – Mirella Castle

Shipping industry is the place to find a career and not just a job.

- Emma Fitton, Business Development


How does being a woman impact your personality, help you in broadening your mind and self-growth?

For me, working in this industry for the past 15 years and seeing how far I have grown makes me very proud. After originally starting as just a job with no insight to shipping at all, I soon realised the potential and have used my knowledge and skills to grow from a Junior to Operations and on to Sales. There are great opportunities within the Industry, and although at times it includes long hours / long phone calls and long emails – it is always rewarding when you secure business and the customer is happy.Emma Fitton

This industry means a constant challenge. It demands extra efforts from us – women – to prove our skills and knowledge. All these ‘extra efforts’ made me grow professionally and kept me challenging myself in all areas of my life. Shipping demands quick reactions, having backup plans at all times and being able to anticipate possible problems. Improving those skills improved my personal life as well.  – Suellen Higino

Embrace your chance to stand out.

- Billie Cawley, Operations & Account Management

 

How do you think the industry could benefit from employing more women?

Diversity.  As the industry becomes more complex, it requires the employment of efficient staff, no matter the gender or age for that matter! – Billie Cawley

I believe that in the industry with such a strong presence of men, gaining more insights from women and learning their point of view would bring a more balanced and accurate perception of the market.
– Suellen Higino

I think the benefits are the same as employing men? What you can bring to the team – this is what matters.
– Mirella Castle

No day in shipping is the same and most days come with problems. Women have a very calm approach to solving them, us women assess the situation and calmly resolve. We get things done! – Emma Fitton

 

A rapid change in the market requires a new influence to grow and compete.

- Billie Cawley, Operations & Account Management

To support all the women in Maritime & Shipping

we all signed a pledge created by 

Women’s International Shipping & Trading Association:

We pledge to:

“Embrace diversity of thought (including gender, race, ethnicity, and age), and contribute to a merit-based business environment within my organisation. I will be a champion of equal opportunity and equal pay. My behaviour will reflect how I wish our industry to behave in the future. I will work – and encourage others to work – toward a diverse and inclusive maritime sector.”

We strongly encourage every person to sign the petition

and contribute to creating a better future of shipping!

Don’t be intimidated by your perception of the industry, because we are waiting for someone just like you!

- Mirella Castle, Operations & Account Management

Our Breakbulk Europe 2018 Experience!

Our Breakbulk Europe 2018 Experience!

They say, ‘the best things in life are free’, and it is definitely true up to a point. But the follow-up to this quote should go: ‘yet there are some worth paying for, and one of them is Breakbulk Expo’! Could you think of a better way to enjoy yourself in a great company and widen your network at the same time?

Each year, Tuscor Lloyds invests in the BB Event and spends months preparing for it. The exhibition has been a platform for us to communicate our brand and grow our network, and it has never disappointed us.

This year was just as amazing as always, and some say, it was even better! We met lots of incredible, inspiring people and we hope these connections become valuable relationships over the next months. The heat did not stop any of us enjoying our time at Breakbulk Europe.

 

Thank you

To everyone who visited us at our stand!

To everyone who shared their thoughts and valuable insights!

To all the regular visitors who pop in every year to catch up and say hello!

To all the new visitors who found our stand and services interesting!

We hope to stay in touch!

As always, for Tuscor Lloyds, people are the most important ingredient of a successful business. Therefore no one should be surprised – Breakbulk is our favourite event!

The other exciting part of the Exhibition, is thinking up unexpected themes for our stand. For years we’ve been choosing concepts which allow us to express our team’s creativity and individuality. This year we presented Tuscor Lloyds as Your Cargo’s Concierge because we believe this expresses our commitment. A Concierge is someone you can rely on to have the most accurate knowledge and savvy in a certain subject/place. A Concierge is someone who will assist you with various tasks and can help you to solve the most awkward problems. And this is exactly what we do on daily basis! Our approach to logistics is to provide our partners with tailor-made solutions and treat each of them with care.

Through all these years in the industry, we have long realised that there is no perfect strategy, but there is a perfect approach – treat your customers individually and each shipment with care.’

General Manager of Tuscor Lloyds

Here is the video we’ve prepared to remember this great experience, have a look!

Instead of using the bells we handed out at the show, we highly advise using cell phones. We are always there ready to deliver the perfect customer service. Call us when you need!

Thank you!

Which industries move the most demanding cargoes?

Which industries move the most demanding cargoes?

Through 23 years of experience in shipping logistics, we have had a chance to work with many different industries. We welcomed challenges and managed thousands of various shipments to the world’s most inaccessible destinations. Our open attitude enabled us to quickly grow our experience and become specialists in project cargo shipments.

Now, in 2018, the most demanding projects are just the part of our everyday life. We have been consistently building our reputation and relationships in the various industries.

We are aware that project cargo shipments are not just about moving huge things around the world. Each industry and each element requires different knowledge and different approach.

The Oil and Gas Industry shipments need to reach the most remote destinations due to the discoveries of new fields or technological advancement happening all over the world. Thanks to our geographical understanding and flexibility, we can move oversized and heavy equipment to the distant locations in the most cost-effective way! Therefore, we are often trusted to manage oil and gas equipment on its way to the new location.

↓ Subsea Oilwell Equipment from Malta to the UK

We are also a trusted logistics supplier for the Construction Industry. Expensive and specialist construction equipment is not easy to be moved, but time is crucial here and meeting the deadlines is the key to a successful shipment. Our advantage comes from trusted suppliers and qualified teams in various locations, ready to pick up demanding cargo and prepare it for the journey quickly and professionally.

↓ Asphalt Plant from Mexico to Libya

It is similar if it comes to the Mining Industry. Not only are the mining operations carried away from areas of major infrastructure, but they also require equipment which cannot be moved without specific knowledge of different project cargo services. Fortunately, we have both the experience in the industry and connections all over the world, which allow us to move any mining equipment in the safe and timely manner.

↓ 32 Pieces of Mining Equipment from Belgium to Peru

Finally, we also provide logistics services for the Renewable Energy Transportation. We are happy to take part in any initiatives that help humans to live in more sustainable and environment-friendly way! We are also aware of how delicate and gentle these materials can be, therefore we are ready to offer bespoke solutions and qualified teams to handle these specific cargoes and make sure it arrives in perfect condition!

↓  Solar Farm Installation from Shanghai to the UK

In the end, all the projects we have worked on in the past, made us understand one thing: if you want to move shipments defined as project cargo – there is no standardized process, there is no pattern. Each shipment can surprise you in many ways and we need to be flexible and creative to meet our customer’s expectations.

 

Yet this is exactly what brought us here – knowledge of traditional methods and courage to use them in an innovative way.
