3 recent projects handled by Global Cargo Line are outlined by Mr. El Badawi below with photos of each shown in the full article linked underneath.
In addition to all other heavy equipment and OOG cargo, we are well known in Lebanon for handling boats and yachts with this particular boat shipped from Spain to Beirut.
Our specialists dismantled all the protruding pieces that require extra space such as antennas, radars and sensor equipment in order to reduce the shipping cost to a minimum and ensure a safe and secure transport. We also built our own cradle for the boat in order to transport it to the port as the shipper was without one. The loading process at the Spanish port was very challenging due to strong winds but with extra care taken, we succeeded in the operation without delays or damages thanks to the hard work of all parties involved.
Congo Machinery Project
Global Cargo Line has recently arranged a shipment of ‘roller tandem vibratory drums’ and a tank truck from Antwerp to Brazzaville via Pointe Noire Port in the Republic of the Congo.
The main achievement of the shipment was done at Pointe Noire Port by our Republic of the Congo team. Our experts successfully loaded the machines on board a cargo train calling at Brazzaville after finalising all the transit formalities at the port in addition to all the stripping and lashing procedures. The entire operation was efficiently accomplished and safely arrived at its destination within the deadline. A well done job with a fully satisfied customer within their budget.
From many years we have gained extensive experience in shipping heavy equipment to several mines in Africa. Our most recent project in this field was to urgently ship a used ‘Komatsu Excavator PC 400’ on chains from Lebanon to Maputo in Mozambique with a very tight deadline.
The machine weighed around 30tns with a volume of 167cbm and we were responsible for handling the cargo from loading in the South of Lebanon to its final destination in Maputo. A low-bed trailer was used to transport the excavator to the port of loading after taking care of all the road and bridges procedures before our experts then handled the cargo at port and loaded it on board the vessel.
The main complication in this shipment occurred at the port of transshipment in Antwerp where the excavator suffered from oil leaking from its hydraulic system. This meant the machine was immobile and the carrier would refuse to load it in this condition which forced the excavator to miss the leaving of the vessel to its final destination. Global Cargo Line overcame this problem successfully with great efforts and lots of cooperation with several parties. We sent our engineers in Belgium to the port to swiftly repair the machine and upon completion, we managed to transfer it to a second quay in Antwerp port to catch the next vessel with a different shipping line all arranged and agreed at the last minute.
Finally, the shipment arrived within the time limit and we are very proud of our team for the unique accomplishment successfully achieved in this consignment.
