?The hazardous nature of the goods, delivery location and festive disruptions created the ?perfect storm.? Brad Brennan, Evolution Time Critical managing director Friday, 10th February 2012

Emergency Logistics specialist Evolution Time Critical has overcome festive disruptions, complex customs procedures and a remote delivery location to ensure vital parts were delivered to a client 1200 miles inside China. The parts were needed for a crucial test, scheduled to take place in Dandong China on the border with North Korea, but were delayed in the UK on the 23rd December, two days before the UK’s biggest public holiday. The client’s standard courier could not deliver the parts by the required deadline due to time of year, so Evolution Time Critical was called in to ensure the programme wasn’t disrupted.
