Meeting the Greatest Challenge with Confidence and Professionalism


  • Delivery of 295 test units, 47,000 individual pieces, from 9 different countries and 29 suppliers…
  • Extensive Custom Crating
  • Proactive Service, Industry Expertise, Reliable Agents


The ICAT Logistics Detroit team never ducks a challenge, and this one, from a loyal Detroit-based customer, was a doozy: Organize and secure the safe delivery of 295 test units — totaling 47,000 individual pieces from nine countries and 29 suppliers.

Some parts in India and Brazil wouldn’t be ready until two days before our deadline and the normal lead time is 10 days. Many parts required custom crating or special packaging. Some needed to be sealed from the elements so they wouldn’t rust. And customs clearance was required from Brazil, Mexico, Germany, China, Spain, Belgium, India, Poland, and the UK.


Fortunately, the ICAT Logistics Detroit team was prepared to handle an order like this. We trust our agents to expedite without cutting corners. We rely on our employees and suppliers who have built great relationships all over the world to work as a team. Like so many times before, we met our customer’s expectations without a hitch.
