    Avvashya CCI Transports Two Transformers from India to Nigeria for State-Owned Nigerian Company through Skipper Seil Limited

    Avvashya CCI Logistics Private Limited, a member of the Project Logistics Alliance based in Nepal, was chosen by SkipperSeil Limited to transport two transformers and their accessories from Mundra, India, to Lagos, Nigeria to help generate electricity for a State-Owned Nigerian Company. Upon arrival at the final destination, the cargo would be utilized for electricity generation purposes.

    The total weight of the cargo was 135 tons each, and each transformer measured 8.20 x 4.60 x 4.50 meters. The shipment was transported to the port via road on ten single hydraulic axles. To load the cargo onto a vessel, two Liebherr cranes with a capacity of 400 tons each were used at the Adani port. This marked the first deployment of such massive machines at the Adani Port.

    A precise and comprehensive plan was necessary due to the limited space at the loading point. Thanks to Avvashya CCI's expertise, the entire shipment was executed flawlessly and according to schedule. The cargo arrived at the final destination in perfect condition, meeting the client's requirements.

    We congratulate Avvashya CCI on their successful execution of this project and wish them continued success in the future.

    Faced with Tight Deadlines, Blue Bell Shipping LLC Comes Up with Innovative Solutions to Transport Breakbulk Cargo from UAE to Iraq

    Blue Bell Shipping LLC, a member of the Project Logistics Alliance representing Iraq, transported cargo which included electrical plant rooms and prefabricated buildings from Hamriyah, the United Arab Emirates, bound for a site in North Iraq. The components varied in size, with the longest unit measuring 20.27 meters. Most of the parts roughly measured 19.76 x 4.84 x 4.97 meters, with weights ranging from 45 to 72 tons.

    The project started with transporting the cargo from Hamriyah to Atakaş Port in Turkey. Delivering the shipment on time was critical to maintaining a smooth installation sequence at the project site. Delays caused by congestion in major ports Iskenderun, would have amplified that problem. To decrease delays, Blue Bell Shipping chartered a faster vessel from Hamriyah to Atakaş Port to keep transit times down and reduce berthing time. This move helped the Blue Bell team to maintain its EPC schedule, simultaneously reducing costs due to decreased detention fees.

    Upon its arrival in Turkey, the shipment was moved by road on specialised semi-hydraulic trailers to Northern Iraq as an OOG cargo due to the massive size of the units. Before the onshore shipment could proceed, a route survey was performed as some of the components were above five meters high and wide, which further complicated the project by adding difficulty to what was already a long-haul road journey.  

    Despite challenges, the Blue Bell team stayed focused and ensured their client's cargo arrived in perfect condition and to the client’s utmost satisfaction. The project is further evidence of the company's outstanding ability to handle any issue that comes its way.

    Altius’ Extensive Experience Leads to A Seamless Transport of Four Steam Separators from Spain to Rotterdam

    A proud member of the Project Logistics Alliance representing Argentina, Bolivia, and Spain, Altius S.A. has completed the first phase of an intermodal transport consisting of four steam separators for a nuclear power plant in France. Each of these separators weighed 20 tons and measured 4.9 x 4.9 x 5.2 meters in size.

    The transportation's initial phase spanned two nights, commencing with a road trip to the port of Santander. The height of the convoy, which totaled 5.82 meters and comprised trailers, presented a substantial obstacle. To overcome this issue, Altius established a comprehensive coordination strategy that involved continuous trailer leveling to ensure a secure journey through traffic lights, signs, cables, and bridges.

    Next, the four equipment pieces were placed on roll trailers and loaded onto a Ro-Ro ship that sailed to Rotterdam. This marked the beginning of the second phase of the operation, during which the cargo was transported via a fluvial barge to France, then by road for almost 400 km to the final destination.

    This project showcased Altius' extensive experience and impressive ability to create innovative solutions for complex shipments. We extend our congratulations to the Altius team for this impressive achievement!

    Livo Logistics Overcomes Challenges to Deliver Gas Coolers for an Hydrogen Manufacturing Plant

    Livo Logistics, a member of the Project Logistics Alliance has successfully delivered a Ryong Process Gas Cooler, a critical component for a Hydrogen manufacturing plant in India. The cargo was transported from the production site of Ofmeco in Mantova, Italy using 80 ton cranes at the pick-up location on to low-bed trailer. Once at the port 80 ton shore cranes were used to load it onto the vessel.

    To transport the cargo, Livo Logistics utilized special low bed trailers with road permits and escorts, which posed several challenges due to the cargo's length, height, and weight. The company had to schedule all stages of handling, apply for and obtain road permits, and load and unload the cargo at the terminal within the time required by the shipowners, including export customs formalities and monitoring for vessel arrival.

    The Livo team provided continuous monitoring and updates to the client on each operation carried out, ensuring successful delivery on time and as agreed with the client. Livo Logistics had to meet the date of operations under FOB terms without compromising the loading and consequently the arrival of the goods at the destination.

    Livo Logistics' ability to deliver the Ryong Process Gas Cooler despite the challenges it posed reflects the company's commitment to quality service and its expertise in handling complex projects. The successful transportation of the cargo is a testament to Livo Logistics‘s capabilities and reinforces its position as a leading provider of logistics solutions in Italy.

    Meeting Tight Deadlines: Alexander Global Logistics Transports Over-width Cargo from Germany to Turkey

    Alexander Global Logistics, a member of the Project Logistics Alliance from Germany, was appointed by Çamsan Ordu Ağaç San. ve Tic. A.Ş. to deliver eight different pieces of equipment from Lebach, Germany, to Ordu, Turkey. The cargo consisted of

    • Six frames weighing 39.5 tons with the dimension of 6.5 x 5.35 x 0.75 meters
    • Plunger weighing 44.5 tons with a measurement of 6.4 x 3 x 1.2 meters
    • Table weighing 27.5 tons measuring 6.4 x 3 x 0.8 meters

    Under the Free Carrier term, the equipment was gathered from Lebach and transported by road to the Dillingen/Saar port. It was then loaded onto a barge and shipped to the Port of Antwerp. To move the six over-width frames from Lebach to the Dillingen/Saar port, special road permits were necessary, which typically take around three to four weeks to obtain. However, in order to meet the loading deadline at the Port of Antwerp, the permit needed to be secured within two weeks.

    Despite the narrow time frame, Alexander Global Logistics' team efficiently processed the permit, which was approved well before the two-week deadline. Even though it might have seemed impossible to execute a just-in-time delivery given these circumstances, the company's broad expertise once more demonstrated its ability to handle such situations adeptly, thereby proving that the problem was not a challenge.

    In mid-December, the cargo arrived in Antwerp, and the vessel was scheduled to depart by the end of the month. At Antwerp, Alexander Global Logistics oversaw the reloading process and subsequently transported the cargo via sea to Gemlik. The equipment was reloaded once more to be conveyed on a trailer as per the Delivered at Place terms, to reach its final destination in Ordu.

    Congratulations to the team at Alexander Global Logistics and we wish them success on their future endevours!
