Kestrel are excited to announce that our very own Felixstowe Branch Manager will be in Series 2 Episode 2 of Mega Shippers airing this weekend on Quest, where he is overseeing the loading of 50 second-hand trucks and other vehicles to be sent out to the Caribbean, from the port of Ipswich.


The show follows the local operations of our principal’s, Europe Caribbean Line’s vessel, Beautrader.


Operational issues faced included meeting schedule deadlines and labour availability,  how to load a variety of different cargo whilst still keeping the ship stable much like a real-life game of Tetris.


Once loaded, and with some places only 15cm between each piece, both on and under deck the Beautrader sets off.  First to Spain, and then arriving safely at George Town, Guyana after 15 days at sea.


To watch the episode in full, tune into Quest this Saturday at 3 pm, or watch it on demand here.
