Challenging 69 tons Trafo Transport to Greece

7 Worldwide Logistics


7WL Bremen just recently finished the transport of a 69 tons Trafo from Eltmann, Germany to Piraeus Port Greece incl. arranging the mobile crane for lifting ex storage place onto truck.

The timeline of this transport was under special pressure as the trafo was urgently needed in Greece for support of existing equipment during summer and holiday season. The process for permit application was therefore under daily revision by 7WL in order not to loose any day.

As from loading day incl. lifting operations we just had 3 days to reach the target vessel in Antwerp port.  

We finally reached the day when vessel was already under full loading operations and unluckily it was also a day before national holiday. So double challenging. With all parties involved -incl. telephone calls till late evening – it was finally managed to get this unit save and sound on board on “MV Grande Ellade”.

Herewith a special thanks to #Grimaldi for their support by accepting the cargo on last minute in Antwerp as well as #Felbermayr for the support during precarriage and crane operations.  We are always thankful having good partners involved..
