The props of the ballet “Swan Lake” followed through the Russian and the Finnish boundary by truck. ACEX Finland had to receive the props in the airport of Helsinki, quickly process 386 items under ATA CARNET and on May 1 for sure send them to Singapore.

ATA CARNET” is a very specific document,” comments Nikita Kovalevsky, the head of ACEX Finland, “In spite of the fact that the procedure is standard for the transport company the process is quite difficult because it is necessary to agree all data in the documents. Any mistake may cause cargo detention while the boundary crossing. The preparation for this transportation was thorough not only because of the cargo specificity but also because of a number of items,” comments Nikita Kovalevsky.

At present moment the cargo was successfully sent, the theatre tour is going on according to the schedule and making great success.
