Alexander Global Logistics And Bohnet Deliver Boiler On Behalf Of Tschudi Logistics Group To Braunschweig26. April 2021
German Project Logistics Alliance member Alexander Global Logistics (AGL) and network partner Bohnet joined forces on behalf of Tschudi Logistics Group, member of the Project Logistics Alliance representing Denmark, Finland Hong Kong and Mozambique, to execute a transport they were awarded for. The commodity to be moved was a 42,8 tons loopseal.
Initially, the loopseal was collected from an inland location in Finland and was trucked for 400 km in freezing -25 degrees temperatures to the Port of Turku. From Turku, the cargo departed with the "ML Freyja" and arrived at the Port of Bremerhaven RoRo ex Turku in Finland. Due to frozen inland waters, the cargo had to be stored in Bremerhaven. Once the water ways were free, the journey continued by barge "NEBOKADNEZAR" from Bremerhaven to Braunschweig.
For the on-carriage with special equipment on the road, Alexander Global Logistics consulted network partner Bohnet. At night, a special team with escort and police managed the challenging transport through the city of Braunschweig. The loopseal was measuring 8,38 meters in length, 5,16 meters in width and 5,92 meters in height. It took months to get approval on the transports as an oak tree had to be cut back and traffic lights had to be taken down. Also, the electric wires of the tram had to be lifted. For regular street transport, a height of 5 meters is considered but the special truck including the cargo reached a height of 7 meters and a total weight of 80 tons. For the tram electricity to be shut down, a replacement bus service had to be organized before the transport permits were given. Precise planning and patience during the transport were needed but finally, the obstacle course was passed without any incidences.
The convoy was followed by a local NDR reporting team and the commentary appeared on German television.
