Cargo-partner transports oversized cargo from Turkey to central Asia

The Cargo-partner Turkish team handled the transport of three oversized pieces of cargo from Aydın, Turkey to Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan and Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan.

The truck first drove approximately 4,885 kilometres from Aydin to Tashkent, while the second drove around 2,394 kilometres. Due to the out-of-gauge (OOG) cargo’s size, special licensing was required, and an adapted route was planned months ahead of time.

The transport required the use of three trucks. One load of cargo measured 10,32 metres by 3,97 metres, by 4,05 metres. The total weight added up to 15.000 kilograms. The other two measured 10,56 metres by 2,85 metres by 4,05metres, and 12,43 metres by 2,45 metres by 2,40. The total weight added up to 11.000 kilograms per truck.

The loading method and cargo distribution on the trucks were designed a month ahead of time, however, the operation plan had to be changed at the last minute. As a result, all three vehicles were loaded on the same day to respect the set time frame.
