Delivering Tanks From China To North America24. March 2021
C.H. Robinson’s project logistics team recently took on a global logistics job to deliver two LOX tanks, each weighing 203.5 metric tons, from China to Houston.
The tanks were received at the port in Shanghai and loaded onto the ocean vessel, one on deck and one under deck. Once safely secured, the vessel set sail to Texas. The tanks were on the water for a total of eight weeks before they reached the Port of Houston.
Throughout the project, C.H. Robinson’s global logistics experts worked as an extension of their customer’s team by working through the details and proactively discussing any potential issues ahead of time. Constant communication was required with all parties involved to ensure all documentation was in place so the cargo could be unloaded without delay.
Once the vessel arrived at the Port of Houston, our experienced project manager was on-site to ensure the tanks were safely offloaded from the vessel onto a barge for the next leg of the journey. C.H. Robinson represents Canada, Luxembourg, Paraguay, Singapore, and the USA in the Project Logistics Alliance.
