EFM Australia Specialise in Delivering the Impossible!
13th August 2020
We are pleased to report EFM Management Australia are new members! With offices in Sydney, the company are 20 years old and are specialists in 'out of the ordinary' cargo and projects. Dylan Owen at EFM says they are joining PCN because "... we see PCN as an ideal avenue to develop business as we are both specialised organisations, small enough to give excellent customer service, but with a global reach."
Dylan continues; "EFM are recognised experts in project cargo solutions with experience in highly specialised shipments that require individual transport planning from origin to destination. With projects coming from many sectors including music, sports, film & TV, performing arts, oil & gas, automotive, construction, power & energy and aid cargo. Over the years, we have transported pretty much anything you can imagine!"
"We understand that the complexity involved in moving project shipments as quickly, safely and economically as possible requires specialist skills of trained, experienced professionals. Our driven project team make this simple, providing true start-to-end solutions. Even before the project starts, EFM completes comprehensive research to clarify all aspects and specifications and ensure everything goes to plan. Onsite throughout the project, you can trust EFM to deliver on time, on budget, every time.
Logistics has been at our core for two decades and we specialise in delivering the impossible. EFM always goes above and beyond!"
As an example of their capabilities and professionalism, the gallery below shows photos of a project undertaken by EFM for NASA. They work regularly with NASA and on this occasion, were instructed to collect and securely load parts for an antenna which was being moved from the USA to Dongara in Western Australia.
The satellite antenna base structure was imported via RORO into Fremantle with EFM organising specialised cranes and staff to be onsite to oversee the unloading. Once cleared, they organised a specialised 45' drop-deck trailer to transport the 2 pieces form Fremantle to Dongara along with an escort vehicles to ensure complete safety. EFM also organised a heavy crane to meet the trailer and the EFM team at the Dongara site to carefully unload and place the satellite bases in position. NASA required a team with experience in dealing with large project work that could instruct the crane and crew on how best to move the base safely and EFM met this criteria well.
The second NASA shipment consisted of 2 x 40' open-tops, 1 x 40' flat-rack OOG cargo as well as 1 x 40' HC from Philadelphia to Fremantle. Due to delays on the water, EFM had to work with customs and quarantine to quickly clear and inspect the cargo as it was required urgently to meet the installation deadline. EFM organised the transport management plan in advance along with escort vehicles. Again, EFM also organised the crane onsite for unloading. The loading and unloading plans organised by EFM were critical as the shipment contained sensitive units that required careful handling.
The NASA team were very happy with EFM for their smooth handling of the project and they continue to work together on a regular basis.
