AGL's express service across the Atlantic Ocean

Alexander Global Logistics (AGL), PLA member for Germany, Russia, and Mongolia got a request to move a dismantled dump truck from US East Coast to Sankt Petersburg. The critical point in this case was the very strict deadline due to the fact that cargo should be presented at an exhibition. And of cause exhibition would not wait for the cargo.

After checking several options overnight, considering the advantages, the disadvantages, the costs and the risks for the delay on the several options AGL presented the solution, transshipment via Antwerp, to the customer.

The customer approved the solution and AGL started the planning process of the job. One week after confirmation the OOG (oversize/overweight goods) and SOC (Shippers owned containers) had been loaded at the factory and moved to Norfolk port where OOG was stuffed on mafi trailer. After the arrival of the ocean vessel in Antwerp, the cargo moved on by ferry after only 1.5 days "stop in Antwerp" further to STP and arrived as planned and in time.
Everything went exactly as planned by the AGL Project Team and thus ensuring the dump truck will be part of the exhibition.

The main units have the following details:

Superstructure:
783 x 475 x 336 cms / 14 tons

Chassis:
1098 x 399 x 374 cms / 55 tons
+ several SOC Container with accessories
