Photographed in the full article is a project shipment of petrochemical equipment recently handled by Polfrost in Poland. The over-dimensional and heavy cargo was collected from the door in Plock to be delivered to the vessel at the Port of Gdańsk. After detailed surveys and planning, Polfrost decided the most feasible option was to transport the cargo by barge from the nearby Vistula River so a pontoon, push boat and 80tn mobile crane was booked. On route, 2 river locks had to be passed in Włocławek and Przegalina whilst the smaller cargo was trucked directly from Plock to Gdańsk.
The step-by-step scope of work handled by Polfrost included:
- Cargo inspection & measuring;
- Road survey;
- Pick up of the largest cases and transport to barge;
- Loading on the pontoon;
- Pick up of smaller cases, which were trucked directly from Plock to Port of Gdańsk;
- Delivery of smaller cases in Gdańsk;
- Unloading of the pontoon in Gdańsk;
- Loading of vessel on the same day.
