CAP Worldwide team moves over 400 tons of freight to over 68 countries
CAP Worldwide, a member of the Colorado Business Roundtable, moved massive amounts of freight to over 68 countries worldwide during the Tucson Gem, Mineral and Fossil Showcase Jan. 30 through Feb. 14, 2016.
In 1955, a group of mineral collectors and rock hounds from the Tucson Gem & Mineral Society held a free exhibition, open to the public, at a local elementary school. Year after year the show became larger and is now one of the largest gem, fossil, mineral and jewelry shows in the world. According to the Visit Tucson website, this show attracts 55,000 tourists annually to this two-week long show. Various show sites are set up through the Tucson area in hotels, parking lots, warehouses and tents in and around the city. In total, the city hosts 40 registered shows over a two-week period with approximately 3,000 exhibitors.
The CAP Worldwide team operated for three weeks out of a warehouse in Tucson designated for customers to gather their mineral specimens, fossils, gems and jewelry. The team aided in packaging the customers’ freight to get it ready to either load into ocean containers or to prepare it for air moves. Several of CAP Worldwide’s customers also arranged for live loading at the shows for stress-free conveyance. Additionally, the team facilitated the paperwork to ensure proper clearance into the customers' respective countries as paperwork requirements vary per country.
Shipments are still moving all around the world with customers still arranging for freight moves. As of today, CAP Worldwide has moved over 400 tons of freight into 68 countries globally.
