Middle East, May 7th, 2013 – Having itself won the Middle East Express logistics provider of the year trophy at the recently held SCATA (Supply Chain and Transport Awards) awards in Dubai; TNT Express has been instrumental in the delivery of numerous other prestigious and highly valuable trophies across the world.
Of late TNT Express has been responsible for the safe delivery of the Omega Dubai Desert Classic replica trophy to Rory Mcllroy. Rory McIlroy’s victory at the tournament annually held at Emirates Golf Club in 2009 was his first professional victory. TNT is set to deliver yet again with the transportation of a replica trophy to this year’s Omega Dubai Desert Classic winner, Stephen Gallacher to his home in Scotland.
The company will also extend its expertise later this month with the movement of the highly coveted European Tour Race to Dubai trophy for an important event in the UK. Nick Tarratt, Director of The European Tour International commented that “we have entrusted TNT with the trophy as they have vast experience in the shipping of such fragile items and can take care of temporary export and import requirements on our behalf”.
TNT’s Sales and Marketing Director for the Middle East, James Edgeworth added that “weighing in at over 30kg and some 45kg when packed, this is a substantial trophy with a value in excess of 550,000 AED. I am proud that our team is able to cater for such a unique shipment”.
