AGL handles super long units for Bridge Steel Structures in the Port of Hamburg

Alexander Global Logistics (AGL) Bremen, member of the Project Logistics Alliance representing Germany has been approached by one of its customers to assist for some local port operations in Hamburg.

The cargo consisted of 4 huge steel structures that are part of a new bridge which is being built in the Hamburg port area. Due to the specific cargo conditions of length, width, and weight it was necessary to unload the barge as close to the site as possible as trucking these parts over longer distances is impossible. The dimensions of each of the 4 parts were 24m x 7.3m x 2.2m, with a weight per unit of 65 tons.

The final solution developed by AGL was to handle the units at the HHLA Container Terminal via the Container Bridges onto an SPMT Trailer which covered the last meters of distance to the site. The operation went very smooth and without any issues.

Well done, AGL!
