C.H. Robinson Helps Deliver Lifesaving Oxygen Tanks To Brazil

The project logistics specialists at C.H. Robinson recently helped execute the delivery of 14 cryogenic trailers from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada to Galveston, Texas. The cargo was on a strict over-the-road timeline, one week to be exact, as it was urgently needed to provide oxygen at Brazilian health facilities due to the spike in COVID-19 cases.  

C.H. Robinson coordinated the units, weighing 180 metric tons and measuring 2,039 cubic meters, to be trucked from Edmonton to Galveston and then loaded onboard a Wallenius Wilhelmsen RoRo vessel. The vessel first traveled to Panama where the cargo was transloaded onto a second vessel bound for Brazil.  

During the discharge at Panama, the local onsite team noticed the units were extremely dirty due to the over-the-road excursion from Alberta to Texas. As there were a few days to spare before the next vessel arrived, the team arranged for the trailers to be cleaned at the terminal before being loaded onto the second vessel.   

The sparkling clean cryogenic trailers were safely delivered to the Port of Santos where they could be put to good use by the medical heroes on the ground in Brazil. C.H. Robinson represents Canada, Singapore, and the USA in the Project Logistics Alliance.
