X2 Member Smart Logistics move steel treatment plant a Whopping 9000
X2 Projects Member Smart Logistics handled the move of a steel treatment plant from Madrid to Mexico.
By: Smart Logistics Group
First their planning and pricing team did an in-depth analysis, comparing different modes of transport. After much discussion, they decided to move the break-bulk cargo through the Port of Bilbao and the Open Top containers via Port of Valencia.
The biggest pieces among the lot were 4 machine beds or platforms that were used for cutting and folding steel bars. With 17.5 meters length, 2.6 meters width and 2.2 meters height.
In order to move the shipment from Madrid to Bilbao, the project required special transport vehicles, clearances and escorting at all times. Upon arrival in Bilbao, the pieces were carefully packaged and secured on vessel to prevent any damage caused by maritime transport and weather conditions.
The 40′ Open Top container required very strong coordination between the operations team and the shipping lines to keep bookings of the equipment and ensure availability of space on the vessel. On the first shipment 10 OTIG and 2 OOG containers departed whilst the other 10 OTIG and 3 OOG containers departed on the second shipment.
The break-bulk shipment arrived at the Port of Veracruz from Bilbao after 22 days without any delays or any kind of damage. The shipment was unloaded at the port and delivered to the warehouse in Veracruz.
The second shipment arrived a few days later, which meant that the Smart Logistics team delivered this project 7 days earlier than the date indicated by the client on the original application.
