Gianti Logistics Employs A Multi-Modal Solution To Deliver Outsized Water Heaters

Transporting tall cargo is a task but transferring tall cargo across countries is a challenge! Our Georgian member, Gianti Logistics has mastered this and delivered outsized water heaters weighing 98 tons from Georgia to the Dunga Oil Field in Kazakhstan.

Once the cargo arrived at the Poti Sea Port, the Gianti team unloaded the cargo onto a special multi-axle hydraulic trailer with low decks. Due to the height and weight of these water heaters, the Gianti Logistics team had its engineers escort the cargo till its journey to Alat Port in Azerbaijan. Here the loaded trailers were moved onto ferries for further shipment to Kazakhstan. In Kazakhstan, the water heaters continued their journey to the job site. The scope of work undertaken by the Gianti team included port handling-lashing and securing the cargo for further movement, arranging escort to comply with the HSE standard requirements, inspection, and completing relevant documentation before the movement.

Some of the challenges the Gianti team overcame include, transporting the cargo on roads with overhead bridges and continuous civil works, moving the ODC cargo through the mountainous regions of Georgia. The COVID restrictions also caused a delay in the Caucasus and the Middle Asian region. Finally, the water heaters arrived safely at the job site in Kazakhstan. Congratulations Gianti Logistics!
