First of all Julien please tell us about DT Project America. When was the company established? Where are your offices located and where is your group headquarter? For how many years have you worked in DT Project and what is your origin, nationality?
I am a 31 year old French national who worked in India, China and Canada before starting DT Project America in Atlanta back in 2013. DT Project America is the US branch of DT Project which belongs to the Dimotrans Group. We are specialized in complex supply chain management and emergency logistics for oversized and heavy lift pieces.
There are many freight forwarders out there that call themselves project freight forwarders, what makes you different?
What I believe sets us apart is mostly the know-how we have developed through our passion of moving project cargo. Also, each member of my team is capable of handling air, sea and ground freight from and to any direction. Thus, the customer is in touch with one person from the time of the quote request to the final delivery and billing.
Can you provide us with a couple of examples of projects that you have handled recently which you are proud of?
We have a pretty solid track record of project cargo, but the most recent example is when there was a power outage at a power plant in the far east a generator had to be loaded in an Antonov. We loaded the AN-124 within 7 days from the day we received the notice to proceed. The whole job was:
– Charter a 747 from the US to North Europe to bring the empty skid and deliver it to the transloading location.
– Barge the crated generator within north Europe to the transloading location.
– Transload and secure the generator onto the skid
– Move the generator onto the skid from the transloading location to the airport in northern Europe for loading the antonov first thing in the morning.
