SWC had the duty of completing the loop by showcasing with few precise slides Swiss WorldCargo`s offer of active and passive equipment to the market, which was pre-cursor to the warehouse tour. Swiss branded Red caps were already placed on the table to identify clients who wish to join the warehouse tour. Sportingly every client attended the tour wearing the cap while they escorted from the auditorium to the cold store acceptance and buildup area, for a “look & feel” of active & passive equipment`s placed by Envirotainer, CSafe & va Q tec, ably supported by respective technical experts who shared information about their equipment.
The cargo terminal is secure, restricted area; ushering every client to the auditorium, arranging security access passes and escorting during tour was a painstaking and seamless work done by SWC Mumbai team for which clients profusely showered with accolades stating the this was the first ever by any carrier in Mumbai and that Swiss WorldCargo had raised the bar higher.
