DHL flies water purification vehicle from Israel to India

DHL Global Forwarding, the air and ocean freight forwarding specialist within Deutsche Post DHL Group, has flown a water purification vehicle from Israel to India.
The first-of-its-kind vehicle from Hadera, Israel-based G.A.L. 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.
The jeep can process up to 20,000 litres of seawater and 100,000 litres of muddy, contaminated water per day, producing drinking water up to World Health Organization standards. It is extremely useful in times of natural disasters such as floods and earthquakes to serve remote communities.
DHL Global Forwarding Israel was assigned the task of shipping the vehicle from Caesarea to New Delhi via Tel Aviv and Leipzig.
“Transporting sensitive goods requires highly specialised expertise in logistics combined with fast and reliable management of all stations along the shipping process,” observed Dganit Edelstein, business performance management, DHL Global Forwarding Israel.
“We designed a unique solution for G.A.L. Water Technologies to cover all aspects involved in the handling of such technically complex and high-profile cargo.”
The cargo was transported from its point of origin at Caesarea to Tel Aviv Airport, where it was loaded onto a pallet for the flight to New Delhi.
Said Sigal Levy, deputy chief executive of G.A.L. Water Technologies: “We chose DHL as the best option for our sensitive shipment and we look forward to continue working with them in the future as we are more than satisfied with the smooth and professional handling.”
