My name is Vasilii Ivanovich Rozumnik. I run business on grain growing and sale. I am a client of ALP for several compelling reasons. I used to work with many forwarders, and to be honest, I am sick and tired of them.
AT THE WRONG TIME
How can you stay calm, if necessary fertilizers are “still on the way, please wait”, and my people in fields stand idly. Thus, you can miss the whole growing season.
CARGO SAFETY CONCERNS
Do you ever have nightmares, where your harvest drowns? And I had them frequently. I wasn’t match to drivers…
DEMURRAGE OF MY TRUCK FLEET
Earlier I was really proud of my own truck fleet. However, last winter my trucks were snow-covered as if it was some ski resort. It seems good, but for such price I can easily stay in Bukovel for life.
IMPOSSIBILITY OF DANGEROUS CARGO DELIVERY
I got used to hear forwarders’ reaction on my “complex” requests. But there was nothing to laugh about, when I urgently needed fertilizers, and everywhere I called, I heard: “We do not ship dangerous cargoes”, “We do not have special tanks”, “We need to order containers abroad”… Strange people! Do I need to ship fertilizers in buckets in my own boot?
Do you know what is the same between deliveries and Black Jack? It is that you have to stand on your own intuition and be confident in your ability to succeed. Once you conduct a deal with someone, and you never know if you will meet him ever or not.
Once I needed to ship just several spare parts. I have made a call to obtain information about the shipment. They demanded an exorbitant price, as I wished to ship Titanic’s propeller.
