Transporting the Product

For centuries, Bohemian Glass has been one of the most famed uniquely Czech exports, and this tradition continues. Logistics has always featured as an incredibly important feature of this trade and is professionally managed to this day. When you take a company like Lasvit, which works on at least a hundred larger projects all over the world and needs to deliver all the individual components of each glass sculpture at a particular time to a particular place, you will understand why. As was described in the previous chapter, safety comes first and the products must always be carefully packed and cushioned within the boxes. This allows the products to travel to their preferred destinations on ships and airplanes without any breakage.
