Oversized cargo rolls through Kuantan Port

Oversized cargo rolls through Kuantan Port

Project cargo logistics specialist Deugro, in cooperation with Roll Group, completed an oversize cargo handling in the Kuantan Port, Malaysia.

According to the port’s brief statement through its social media channels, this was the biggest oversized cargo that Kuantan Port has ever handled.

This 93 meters long C3 tower weighing approximately 778.1 tones took almost 11 hours for a 6-km journey from the KNM fabrication workshop in Gebeng to the quay at the Kuantan Port.

Due to the broader and longer size cargo, many challenges, moving the oversized cargo into the Kuantan Port required cutting down several trees and taking out a few lamp poles to make way for the cargo.

The port is now readying to complete the loadout operation that will again be the largest of its kind.
