Members in India, Express Global Logistics (EXG) have once again successfully executed another critical breakbulk movement. The cargo was a vaporizer moved from the factory in Vadodara (Gujarat) to underhook of the vessel at Mumbai Port for their fellow PCN member in Canada, C.H. Robinson Project Logistics.
The vaporizer weighed 78.05tns and measured 23.00 x 4.22 x 4.20m with the shipment also including 10 small packages of accessories. Nidhi Mehta at EXG explains; “Despite many challenges such as limited lashing points on the saddles only, the cargo not being ready on time and a last-minute increase in cargo height made this job more critical. The revised height in particular was a challenge as it was already close to the maximum height which was feasible to pass through Mumbai City to reach Mumbai Port at the committed transit time.”
The project team at EXG managed to find swift solutions to the issues.
- “Our engineering team suggested additional lashing points for the safety of the cargo during road transportation.
- Due to the shortage of time, we carried out the export seaworthy packing at very short notice, 1 day prior to the vessel berthing.
- We managed to deliver the cargo in the shortage possible time and ensured there was no vessel detention. This was only possible on account of our team of engineers, transport specialists, port handling, customs and packing teams, who all worked around the clock to make it happen.”
The shipment was seamlessly handled by the EXG team and the cargo was safely delivered and handled at Mumbai Port on time. As always, the EXG team displayed meticulous planning and timely coordination with all parties and their efficiency and prompt solutions were much appreciated by the client.
