Required Vehicles & Cranes
Based on our studies to remove and transport the complete factory parts, the needed equipment and trucks for the whole process required the following:
- 50 x flatbed trailers to load the containers for in-gauge parts
- 6 x flatbed trailers for small OOG pieces

To achieve this project in the best order, we carefully complied our action plan and adhered to the instructions of all related parties whilst following safety steps and rules.
- In order to match the timeline of our action plan & avoid unnecessary delays, we maintained constant coordination with all related parties.
- All needed vehicles, trucks, flatbeds & low-bed trailers as well as cranes & forklifts were available and ready at the site 48 hours before loading began.
- The first movement for the project was 50 trucks loaded with containers and 6 flatbeds. For safety & security purposes we rearranged the 56 trucks in 4 convoys each with 14 trucks, departing the site and heading to the port guarded by low-profile escorts.
- For the remaining 6 x low-bed trailers, we applied special precaution arrangements with complete coordination & collaboration with all related parties. We managed to pass all retardants & removed all obstacles successfully with damage-free results.
