Project Cargo Network makes moves
Three Project Cargo Network (PCN) members have completed shipments, in Belgium, Germany, and Vietnam.
The Belgian company, Europe Cargo, discharged a 253-ton heat exchanger in the Port Antwerp-Bruges. The heat exchanger was transferred from a barge to the terminal using a floating crane, which was positioned alongside the barge with scrubbers attached for lifting. Once the cargo was lifted high enough, the barge sailed, and the crane approached the quay. The cargo was then gently lowered to the ground using slings. Lastly, the cargo was loaded onto a seagoing vessel with prepared flats for delivery.
In Germany, CargoCrew International’s inland shipping division transported 72 cable reels in various sizes for a domestic infrastructure project. The largest cable reel weighed 50 tons, while the maximum dimensions of each cable reel were 4.5 metres, by 3.97 metres by 4.5 metres.
In Vietnam, Bee Logistics handled a shipment of construction and factory equipment for a new industrial site in the southeast Asian country. The cargo included a large steam boiler, a crane, steel structures, and 75 packages. The boiler measured 31 metres in length with a diameter of 3.2 metres and a weight of 81 tons. The two larger units and 75 smaller packages combined occupied 2,230 cubic metres and a weight of 399 tons.
