2 months ago Alexander Global Logistics Bremen and Wirtz Shipping Antwerpen – both PL Alliance Members – have been nominated by one of the world leading companies for liquid gases to plan and arrange the transport of an Air Purification Skid ex suppliers place to the port of Gdansk for further movement to overseas.
The Skid has the following dimensions:
1 Unit / 895x402x515 / 19100 KGS
The height of 515 cm together with low bed height made this movement a real challenge.
Due to the actual inland waterway water level there was no option to move by barge so the planning for a direct road transport started immediately. After 4 weeks of planning incl. several meetings and phone conferences with involved companies like railroad, telephone and energy companies the transport was ready to start. Only 3 days later the last minute notice, that local road works would begin and would make any transport impossible for a duration of 8 weeks, came in.
Especially the choosen trucking company performed very well and handled the transport within 3 nights without any issues en route. The cargo left Poland by Ferry MV STENA Forerunner as planned.
