Shipping News Feature
ISRAEL – INDIA – DHL Global Forwarding recently transported a unique integrated water purification vehicle from Israel to India. The vehicle, from GAL Water Technologies, produces high-quality drinking water from contaminated water within seconds and was a gift from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to India's Prime Minister Narendra Modi in the course of Netanyahu's first visit to India. DHL Global Forwarding Israel was assigned for the transportation and shipped the sensitive and high profile cargo from Caesarea to New Delhi via Tel Aviv and Leipzig as air freight.

The shipment, a water purification jeep, can process up to 20,000 litres of seawater and 100,000 litres of muddy, contaminated water of any source per day, producing drinking water according to the World Health Organization's (WHO) water standards. It therefore finds use in natural disasters like floods and earthquakes and serves remote communities. Dganit Edelstein, Business Performance Management, DHL Global Forwarding Israel.

"Transporting sensitive goods requires highly specialised expertise in logistics combined with fast and reliable management of all stations along the shipping process. We designed a unique solution for GAL Water Technologies to cover all aspects involved in the handling of such technically complex and high-profile cargo."

After the cargo was transported from its origin Caesarea to Tel Aviv airport, it was re-loaded on a special airline pallet and started its journey to New Delhi, India.
