The challenge of Bertling's 'go-anywhere' approach
Global project logistics is a complex and challenging business. It requires planning and preparing for the known and managing the unforeseen. Each project is made up of a unique combination of obstacles and challenges depending on cargoes, systems and scope of work.
Identifying the challenges and the risks requires experience and expertise, and putting solutions in place requires organisation and determination. Achieving this around the world is what Bertling does every day. Bertling's projects get delivered on time and on budget around the world.
The solution lies in tailor-made concepts managed by skilled personnel
To achieve sustainable success in the project logistics world requires a company to have people with a depth and breadth of skills, talents and experience and an organisation with the ability to manage and mobilise them effectively. Bertling complements the core competencies of its clients by providing in-depth transport expertise at both origin and destination countries, and extensive local knowledge through project staff located in all of their offices. Bertling's people make things happen. The experts range from Heavy Lift Engineers, Project Managers, Shipping & Chartering Experts, Air Charter Specialists, Freight Forwarders, HSSE Managers, Quality Experts, Compliance Personnel and IT Specialists.

The creativity and energy of the multi-skilled Bertling project team then realises these plans, driving performance, overcoming all obstacles, and transforming ideas into reality no matter where the project is in the world.
The foundation is a global software application that helps projects to take off
The ability to offer this portfolio of services on a worldwide scale, and then to deliver on those promises, can only be achieved if the Bertling team is supported by effective information and freight management systems that are robust, reliable and accessible from anywhere. To meet this need Bertling founded its own IT company, BESITEC, and developed its own Transport Management System. The most up-to-date version of which is the recently released state of the art system: BLU. This system is accessible globally across a secure Bertling VPN network and has the capability to exchange information between client and service provider systems, thus delivering a complete and comprehensive freight and transport management solution.
From this system it is possible for the Bertling project teams to manage cargo down to PO item level, track and trace cargo, measure actual logistics spend against budget, provide an auditable history of every shipment and related documentation and monitor the supply chain performance using flexible KPI reports.
In summary it is through the competence and commitment of its staff and the reliability and effectiveness of its management systems that Bertling is able to plan, manage and deliver global projects to the levels of performance and visibility that today's clients expect and regulating authorities demand.
