The will to get ahead
If Murat Kayki and his colleague Swapnali Kurale planned to meet in person, that would take time. A lot of time. More than seven hours in the air separate Nîmes in the south of France, where Kayki lives and works, from the Indian metropolis of Mumbai. They may come from different continents and different cultures, yet the two DACHSER employees have a lot in common. Both of them live and work in the city where they were born. It’s 38 years since Kayki came into the world in Nîmes as the son of Turkish immigrants. Today, he is head of DACHSER’s Nîmes and Avignon offices, and, like Kurale in Mumbai, has had quite a remarkable career.
Monsoon season in India: precautions for cargos
The Indian monsoon season has started and will last until the end of September. Additional precautions are highly suggested when packing incoming and outgoing cargos.
India is currently experiencing an unusual monsoon season. The India Meteorological Department (IMD) projected the amount of rainfall to be 97% higher than last year. There are heavy and frequent rainfalls, accompanied by gusty winds.
It is inevitable that the outer packing of the cargos will be exposed directly to rain water during transfer. Therefore, additional precautions are deemed necessary when packing cargos.
Shippers are recommended to ensure all parcels are suitably packed and adequately covered with polythene sheets or waterproof material to withstand high humidity and prevent from getting wet by rain water seeping in.
