DigiFreight Holds Exclusive Webinar For Their Members


DigiFreight recently held an exclusive Webinar for their Members with Marco J. van Daal, a lecturer/speaker who has over 20 years’ experience extending to more than 55 countries on 5 continents.

Marco is author of the book ‘The Art of Heavy Transport’, and in addition to being a contributing member of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) and the European Association of Abnormal Road Transport and Mobile Crane (ESTA). Marco also delivered the training for Freightbooks’s eLearning Platform, which DigiFreight Member have access to.

The Webinar was provided free for Members and featured an interesting case study of a power plant that planned an extension and went from 12 x 180 ton gensets to 6 x 300 ton.

This fascinating case study showed how late changes in a project design can have a major influence on equipment selection and sourcing and was a perfect example of how the heavy transport provider (or crane provider) should be involved from the early stages of the project.

Karl Yang, DigiFreight Member, Wellfast Logistics said "Thank you so much. It is the first time for me to join a Digi Webinar. What a fantastic presentation Marco gave us!"

The session took place on 2 May 2022 and was recorded for Members who were unable to participate due to varying time zones.

DigiFreight President, Rachel Crawford, said: "This fascinating case study showed that forwarders really are the world’s greatest problem solvers! It also highlighted the vast amount of factors that go into the planning and execution of such projects. Marco’s presentation included the perfect mix of videos, photos and diagrams which he explained in great detail. It really was a fantastic webinar and showcases the huge wealth of knowledge Marco has gained in his 20+ years in the industry."
