Rhenus charters MPV Josef for project cargo delivery to Thailand
Rhenus Project Logistics Thailand recently handled the import of kiln shells from Germany and kiln tyres from Italy for the construction of a cement factory in Thailand.
With parts weighing up to 106 tonnes, the team worked closely with its local units to provide its customer International Packing and Logistic Solutions (IPLS) with a seamless logistics experience.
The transport has been completed by the 2011-built F-Type multipurpose vessel Josef. Owned by HS Schiffahrts and operated by dship carriers, the vessel unloaded the project cargo at Laem Chabang Port and is already heading back towards the Mediterranean, currently passing the Suez Canal.
