Total Movements responds to ExxonMobil’s tight-scheduled request
Fulfilling a request by a client at a time of soaring rates and severe shortage of tonnage was the latest obstacle faced by Total Movements. When ExxonMobil came knocking the company was pushed to think on their feet to make sure project cargo gets delivered in a timely manner.
Global energy major ExxonMobil enlisted Total Movements to move a shipload of Concrete Weight Coated (CWC) pipes from India to Thailand. The project cargo was destined for an ExxonMobil project in Thailand, however, there was a strict timeline and budget.
According to Total Movements, this request also “came at a time when there was an extreme dearth of suitable ships and freight levels were pushing through the roof all across.”
The company’s chartering division managed to secure a vessel suitable for the job on a Last in First out basis, which remained within budget.
ExxonMobil also deployed a globally acclaimed marine warranty surveyor and Total Movements’ senior technical and operations teams worked closely to ensure that all the safety and operational requirements were met well within time to ensure that the vessel sails out in a time-bound manner.
