KGE Global Logistics moves dished heads from Dubai to Kazakhstan
KGE Global Logistics, a UAE project cargo company, transported eight semi-ellipse dished heads from the Dubai Investment Park to Atyrau, in western Kazakhstan.
The cargo was first moved from the shipper in Dubai to the port of Jebel Ali on 3 axle semi-traielrs. From there, it was sent to the Poti Port, in Georgia, on 20-foot Flat Rack (FR) containers, as KGE Global Logistics Director Artiom Kozlov stated.
After that, the cargo was moved to the Kuryk port in Kazakhstan via the Alyat port in Azerbaijan using Ro-Ro services via the Caspian Sea. Finally, the dished heads were transported “to destination with the same truck that loaded this cargo in Poti”.
Each item of the Out-of-Gauge cargo measures 3,65 metres in both length and width, and 2,07 metres in height. As Kozlov underlined, semi-ellipsed dished heads are commonly used in the mining industry to melt different kind of resources, including gold.
A challenging assignment
KGE Logistics was awarded the project in November, and the cargo was delivered before the end of the year. The company pointed out that the delivery safely came through “despite the challenges of delay in customs and harsh weather conditions at destination”.
More specifically, said that one of the main issues was the lashing process to secure the heads. “We had to order a special team of certified professionals to come to the loading place and lash this dish heads on to the Flat rack container”, Kozlov highlighted.
