Cory Plans for the Coldest Journey
Logistics expert Cory Brothers will be ensuring the start of Sir Ranulph Fiennes’ trans-Antarctic expedition gets underway without hitch by lending its agency and logistic services while the research ship, SA Aghulas is berthed on the Thames.
The expedition, named The Coldest Journey, will be the first time anyone has attempted to cross the Antarctic during winter and will see Sir Ranulph and his team collect research and data on a journey spanning 20,000 miles over a six-month period in temperatures as low as -70 degrees Celsius.
Cory’s involvement will include booking berths, pilots and tugs, informing customs, immigration and local police, ordering water and waste disposal, organising crew transfers and obtaining ship spares and charts.
Kevin Gorman, Managing Director of Cory Brothers, said: “We are delighted to be associated with this exciting project and are proud to have been selected to provide agency and logistics services for such a pioneering venture.”
