08.05.2023 We are delight to share some news about a quite challenging cross trade handled by the 7WL project team in Bremen. Around 8 months ago the 7WL Team has been approached to arrange the first transport studies on behalf of 7WLs regular customer for 2 Heavy Lifts (Ram + Plate) ex Windsor, CAN till Cartagena, Seaport Colombia.
1x Plate – 1507 x 305 x 021 cm / 30 to 1xRam – 1524 x 350 x 162 cm / 130 to
The 7WL Team has investigated several different options and finally came to the conclusion that a combined transport of truck / rail and vessel will be the best solution here. After months of preparation – going 2 steps forwards – one step back and again one step forward the cargo was finally loaded begin of this year at Windsor Canada. After a short truck distance it was reloaded onto special prepared rail wagons for the 2nd leg till Houston Seaport. Both units have been finally loaded in Houston on H/L Vessel Industrial Courage (2×150 tons geared) in February for the last leg till Cartagena, Seaport. Meanwhile cargo was discharged and received by consignee without any incidents.
Thanks to all involved parties for being part of this “long” journey..
