BGI Worldwide Logistics recently completed the shipping of some rather unusual oversized cargo – a giant Marilyn Monroe sculpture to be installed in a Marilyn Monroe-themed shopping mall.

Shipping the "Forever Marilyn" statue from the U.S. to China.

After months of preparation and coordination with overseas agents, the sculpture successfully made it to Dalian despite copious amounts of bureaucracy at Chinese customs.

“The toolboxes were a challenge for Chinese customs; the boxes contained both non-consumables which would be returned after installation (power tools, hand tools, chains, straps, etc.) and consumables (sand-paper, latex gloves, paint, etc.) which wouldn’t. A lot of documentation and clarification was needed for Chinese customs to allow these items through,” said Charlie Turville.

The team’s patience and due diligence in the customs process ensured a successful outcome.
