Intermodal South America is an unqualified success

first_imgThe fair, which is now into its 18th year attracted an official attendance of 45,451, and a one-day record of more than 20,000 was posted on Wednesday, the second day of the event, hosted by UBM Brazil .Demir Lourenco, the executive director for Tecon Salvador container terminal, part of the diversified Wilson, Sonsshipping and logistics group, said: “It is the great forum for logistics in Brazil. I met during this fair three potential clients who are asking for a study to containerise the transportation of their cargo, and with this, improve its transit. Intermodal allows you to speak to around 100 clients in the same place. This is impossible to achieve in any other way.”Karin Mickenhagen, the managing partner for Deugro Brasil, the project forwarding specialists, told HLPFI: “It is a great event and you can meet a lot of potential and actual business clients. Brazil still has a lot of infrastructural improvements to come in the next few years and that is where we come in; helping with the logistics to get the equipment to those projects.”Mickenhagen said that Deugro Brasil has made rapid progress since opening for business four years ago and now has 700 clients and three offices. She told HLPFI that the expanding joint venture (with German outfit Deugro the majority shareholder) currently employs 22 in Brazil with more to be added by the end of this year.One of the companies exhibiting at the event was Saraiva Equipamentos , the Recife based equipment supplier (especially for the wind power sector) and company president Ricardo Teixeira , said he hoped the company would find even more new business from the event. He said: “We are growing daily and the rate of growth is very good.”Intermodal South America is the second biggest logistics trade show in the world and also hosted a record number of stands, 550, and organisers say it will be even bigger next year.Many exhibitors also commented this year that the “quality” of attendees was higher than in previous years with far fewer “free gift” seekers/students/junior members of workforce attending on the final day. Perhaps that was due to the poor weather.www.intermodal.com.brwww.tecon.com.brwww.deugro.comlast_img read more

Punya Standar Tinggi, Inilah Rasanya Jadi Awak Kabin Emirates

first_imgUntuk menjawab pertanyaan yang kedua, jawabannya tentu saja tidak. Hal ini lantaran ada beberapa kualifikasi dari calon awak kabin yang harus terlebih dahulu dipenuhi, seperti usia minimal 21 tahun, tinggi minimum 160 cm, mahir berbahasa Inggris (lisan dan tulisan), tidak memiliki tattoo yang terlihat ketika mengenakan seragam Emirates, mampu beradaptasi dengan lingkungan baru, hingga panjang lengan yang mencapai angka 212 cm ketika berjinjit. Jika ada salah satu dari syarat tersebut yang tidak terpenuhi, maka Anda akan terdepak dari barisan persaingan.Sebagaimana yang dilansir KabarPenumpang.com dari laman dailymail.co.uk, seorang awak kabin Emirates yang bernama Alexandra Cosoff asal Queensland, Australia mengatakan bahwa para awak kabin ini mendapatkan pelatihan yang cukup keras – sehingga lama kelamaan mereka akan terbiasa untuk menghadapi tingkah laku penumpang yang terkadang di luar nalar.Sebagai contoh, khusus untuk penumpang di First Class, Alexandra mengatakan bahwa awak kabin harus mengenal masing-masing penumpang sebelum mereka mengudara.“Kami melakukan pendekatan secara pribadi kepada setiap penumpang di First Class, salah satunya adalah dengan cara memanggil nama mereka dan berusaha untuk mengetahui setiap detail penumpang tersebut agar penerbangannya bersama Emirates menjadi berkesan,” tutur Alexandra.Baca Juga: Jurus Awak Kabin Emirates Taklukan Si Kecil di Penerbangan Jarak Jauh“Selain itu, pemahaman terkait semua produk yang tersedia di First Class merupakan hal mutlak. Ini merupakan salah satu cara kami untuk bisa menghidangkan makanan dan minuman secara tepat kepada penumpang – mengingat ada banyak ragam yang kami sediakan di setiap penerbangan,” sambungnya.Sebagai informasi, baik awak kabin pria maupun wanita yang ada di Emirates ini sebelumnya telah melewati masa pendidikan di sekolah kecantikan terlebih dahulu – mengingat kecantikan merupakan salah satu pedoman utama bagi para awak kabin dari maskapai berkelas ini.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedTernyata Ada Makna ‘Terselubung’ di Balik Pertanyaan Awak Kabin Saat Anda Boarding20/12/2019In “Domestik”Hadirkan Seragam Mini, Qantas dan Emirates Harapkan Anak-Anak Cintai Profesi Awak Kabin27/10/2017In “Bandara”Mau Jadi Awak Kabin?

WADA requests CAS ruling on Russia’s ban

first_img(Reuters) – The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) formally asked the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) yesterday to rule on Russia’s four-year ban for doping, after the agency handed down the punishment for manipulating laboratory data. The move was expected after the Russian Anti-Doping Agency (RUSADA) sent a letter to WADA last month formally disputing the punishment, which bars Russia from competing in this year’s summer Olympics in Tokyo and the 2022 winter Games in Beijing.Only athletes who can prove they are clean competitors would be permitted to compete under the ban, and would have to do so as so-called “neutral” athletes.The ruling has hit Russia’s national pride in its athletes, with the country regularly sending large delegations to both the summer and winter Olympics. WADA previously handed Russia a four-year ban for doping after the 2014 Sochi Olympics, with a limited number of athletes permitted to compete as neutrals in the 2016 Rio and 2018 Pyeongchang Games.Russian President Vladimir Putin criticised the most recent ban after it was imposed last month, arguing that any punishment should be individual and not collective.The United States, however, said the punishment was not severe enough, with U.S. Anti-Doping Agency head Travis Tygart telling Reuters that the previous sanctions only emboldened Russia. A top U.S. Olympic official also expressed doubt that a concession allowing clean Russian athletes to compete in Tokyo could be properly enforced.The final decision on the punishment now rests with CAS, whose ruling on the matter would be binding.last_img read more

Orioles look to tie series against Boston: Game Preview 8/17/19

first_imgBefore the game, a few roster moves were made, including a call-up from Triple-A Norfolk by the name of RHP Hunter Harvey. The Orioles also sent RHP Tom Eshelman back down to Norfolk following last night’s game. Last night the offense was nowhere to be found, as the Birds scored just one run, while Boston tallied nine runs in their victory. Here is the lineup for tonight’s game against the Red Sox: Today the O’s will send RHP Asher Wojciechowski (2-5, 4.84 ERA) to the mound to face former Oriole prospect LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (13-5, 4.31). Thing to keep an eye on:center_img Hunter Harvey will make his major league debut if he enters the game tonight. He will wear No. 56, which was formerly worn by fan-favorite, RHP Darren O’Day. Let’s see what role Harvey will play in tonight’s game. The Baltimore Orioles look to even their three-game series against the Boston Red Sox at a game a piece.
