Polaris with Time-Sensitive Project Shipment of Rail Wagons

Polaris Shipping Agencies have successfully handled a time sensitive project shipment of rail wagons and cars with attached cranes from Saudi Arabia to Italy.

The Polaris project team was responsible for the inward movement of the shipment into Saudi Arabia in 2018. Since the team was fully knowledgeable on the import documentations and procedures, it helped to handle the re-export process smoothly even though there was a curfew imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and all government offices were working with reduced staff including the Saudi Arabian Customs and Traffic Authorities.

Due to the sensitive nature of the shipment and the specific and strict quality guidance from the client for transportation, Polaris ensured excellent pre-shipment coordination and planning with all concerned sub vendors so all parties were aware of the procedures to avoid any issues during handling.

The scope of work handled by Polaris included:

  • Coordination with shippers & sub-vendors for correct documentation;
  • Route survey & road adjustments completed with all HSE requirements;
  • Completion of customs formalities, police permissions etc. considering the restricted curfew hours;
  • Pick up of cargo on special axles, stuffing and securing on flat racks;
  • Smooth ocean freight arrangements.
