2010: Shipping to Iraq (ship from Iraq) small shipments has never been faster and Move One has recently transported sensitive environmental samples. Move One even broke our own record with this additional challenging delivery. We previously ship from Iraq soil, water and fuel samples taken from the West Qurna to analysis laboratories in Malaysia. This is not the first time we ship from Iraq to Malaysia (or shipping to Iraq).
Whilst by no means the most unusual or challenging logistics project undertaken by Move One, but also the shipment was highly time sensitive. The water samples had to be precisely refrigerated and had a lifespan of only six days. Whilst fuel was shipped in carefully sealed atmospheric sample containers, .
What really made this project extraordinary is that the transit time from Basra to Kuala Lumpur was only four days. “We developed a solution in order to export small shipments from Iraq to anywhere in the world in under a week. Before it usually required the same amount of time for customs alone.” said Craig Bailey. Craig Bailey is Move One’s former Manager for Southern Iraq. Three weekly shipments were delivered, and then the rest were scheduled over the following months.
Shawn Wood’s observation, Move One’s former UPS Product Manager. “With the strong UPS network in Iraq, along with the efforts of our experienced staff on the ground, we are now able to procure express courier shipments destined for any international delivery in less than a week.”
Move One, being the authorized service contractor for UPS in Iraq, has an extensive network in the country. It catered the centers in Erbil, Baghdad and Basra. These links add efficiency and agility to Move One’s already diverse line of products as a service provider in Iraq. Move One is offering customers easy and convenient access to a variety of domestic and international shipping options. Highly trained UPS representatives provide customers with services, such as shipping documentation, packaging and labeling. Packages therefore, can be transported to any country or territory worldwide that UPS currently serves.
Shipping to Iraq : 12,400 Carp
Move One, in partnership with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is playing an important role in the reconstruction of Iraq’s agricultural industry.

The investment is more than $6 billion in programs designed to foster agricultural and economic growth. Inma (Arabic for Growth) Agribusiness Program, which is aimed at assisting the development of agribusinesses and agricultural markets in Iraq. As part of the USAID foundation, Move One facilitated the successful shipping to Iraq, 12,400 carp roe in May 2009.
Move One is pleased to hear from Inma that the fisheries project is a continued success. The imported carp reached maturity and then Inma Agribusiness already started the process of hybridization with the local stock. These cross-breeds will be distributed to local area farmers and hatcheries.
The shipment was collected from the Tiszaszentimre fish farm in Hungary, and flown to the Middle East Fish Farm (MEFF) in Iskandaria. The remaining shipment were transported to Euphrates Fish Farm (EFF) at Al Hilla. Inma were present and oversaw the process, from the packaging of live fish brood stock in Hungary. They also witnessed the placement in live tanks at the Iraqi receiving hatcheries. On site assistance, when required, was provided to ensure that the movement and time line projected were completed. And also the verifying count, time and method of packaging of live fish for importation.
