Bertling Logistics transports heavy machinery to Malaysia

The global logistics and shipping company headquartered in Hamburg, Bertling Logistics, handled a successful transport from the United Kingdom to Malaysia. Their Aberdeen and Kuala Lumpur logistics and shipping teams shipped heavy oil and gas machinery, as well as containerised equipment. 

The cargo was taken from Newcastle upon Tyne, in Northern England, to Pasir Gudang, east of Johor, across the Johor Strait from the Punggol area of Singapore. The cargo included components manufactured by the British company, Wellstream Holdings, and the American Baker Hughes Company. The heaviest piece of project cargo was a subsea umbilical cable, measuring 9.20 metres by 6.13 metres by 9.40 metres, and weighing 100 tonnes.

Bertling Logistics work included liaising with the shipper, booking heavy lift vessels, as well as purchasing and stuffing containers, and arranging loading berths and technical input with all parties. Bertling experts from Middlesbrough, near Stockton-on-Tees, in North Yorkshire, and from Singapore, supported the operations.

Stuart Henderson, branch manager at Bertling Aberdeen, stated that “The biggest challenge was the narrow time window. We needed to prepare a full technical proposal at short notice and needed to ensure we get approval from several parties to complete the job.”
