C.H. Robinson arranges successful transportation for buggies to Uzbekistan via Russia05. September 2019
C.H. Robinson, member of the Project Logistics Alliance for Canada, Singapore and USA recently helped transport 12 seismic buggies and two 40â€² standard containers of equipment from Texas to Uzbekistan. The combined weight of the cargo was 378 metric tons. Removable goose neck (RGN) trailers were used for the buggies to allow them to be driven directly onto the RGN trailers at origin and transported to the Port of Houston.
Due to a lack of Ro-Ro service to Russia, we were required to have the buggies lifted and placed into the hold of the ocean vessel. Specific steps needed to be taken when lifting onto the ship due to the central steering mechanism, and locking devices were required for each buggy. Upon arrival in St. Petersburg, the buggies were lifted out of the vessel in the same manner.
Once the equipment reached the port in Russia, the cargo was lifted out of the vesselâ€™s hold and driven onto flatbed railcars using ramps and transported from St. Petersburg to two different railway stations in Uzbekistan, a journey which took 15 days.
By working directly with the customer, ports, and railroads, C.H. Robinsonâ€™s dedicated project team developed tailored solutions to fit the projectâ€™s specific needs.
Congratulations from The Project Logistics Alliance Team!
