Our Rotterdam office had the honor to move a excavator to India for one of our valued clients. Due to the size this could not go into a regular ocean freight container and special equipment and handling was required.
For one of our valued partners, we have handled an airport to airport move of 21 tons from Japan to Argentina. As the shipment was not able to fly direct from Japan, a transshipping at Amsterdam Airport was needed to eventually get the cargo at its final destination.
For one of our valued partners, we have handled a part-charter of 70 tons of steel to Nigeria. The shipment was unpacked and not ready for transport, with a tight deadline set, all parties involved had to do their utmost best to get all done on time.
This long and heavy shipment was collected and brought to the airport from the Dutch manufacturer, short before departure, and was loaded directly onto aircraft ULD’s by a crane, all requiring close attention and teamwork of all parties involved.
The helideck plank was collected with a flatbed trailer at a Dutch crating company, where the shipment was prepared for transport. With a length of more than 14 meters the options to uplift the helideck plank were limited.
This oversized shipment was collected at the Slovakia manufacturer with six full trailers loads, to be uplifted to Doha, Qatar in two lots. Good coordination and close monitoring from our operational department was required for a smooth and successful operation.
