    C.H. Robinson Project Logistics Team Successfully Completes Challenging Transport

    We are proudly sharing the conclusion of another project our Project Logistics Alliance member C.H. Robinson has recently concluded. A long-time client in Texas calls regularly on the C.H. Robinson project logistics team to transport equipment. Origins for this project are worldwide, including shipments from China, Mexico, Belgium, Sweden, Switzerland, Germany, and throughout the United States. The project logistics team in Shanghai was on hand to assist with the recent inland transportation in China of five large cold box modules—the largest of which measured 44m x 6.2m x 5.1m (L x W x H).

    Five hydraulic multi-axle modular trailers and two heavy, low-bed trailers were used to move the modules inland from the supplier in Shanghai to the Cao Jing terminal for barging. From there, the modules were moved to the Jun Gong Road terminal to load from barge to the ocean vessel bound for Texas. After the modules arrived at the Port of Houston, C.H. Robinson’s project manager handled the inland transportation from the port to final destination.

    Several obstacles—including road limitations, maritime inspection, a crane breakdown, and severe weather conditions—drew upon the capabilities and skills of the C.H. Robinson project logistics team to resolve. For example, when permits that had been issued for the cold box units were later revoked by the authorities, loaded trailers and barges remained on standby for over one week until permits were issued. With excellent teamwork and cooperation by all parties, the team overcame this and other complications, resulting in a successful delivery for the customer.
