DSV moves project cargo from Korea to Turkiye
“Not all cargo can fit in a box,” DSV Projects specialists voice the simplest of definitions of project cargo. It is well-known among transport and logistics professionals, and ship engines tick all the boxes for heavy, oversized and complex cargo.
DSV Projects recently responded to a request by Turkon Logistics to transport two 491-tonne ship engines along with three engine generators from Korea to Turkiye within a short timeframe.

“The size of the engine presented a significant challenge for this transport, and for this reason, it was divided in two. Even so, our teams faced strict space restrictions in both Korea and Turkiye, and we, therefore, had to make a lot of preparations to make the transport possible,” explains Veysel Ayaydın, who was in charge of the project.
One of the key challenges that the DSV Project specialists had to overcome was moving the project cargo to the shipyard in Turkiye from the nearest port, as it wasn’t possible to transport the engine by road due to its dimensions. Additionally, the shipyard had a draft restriction, meaning that DSV Projects tea had to find the right vessel to fit the berth.
The specialists were able to find the vessel for the job in BBC Aquamarine and secure a special permit from the Turkish authorities to berth the vessel directly into the shipyard. This meant that project cargo could be delivered to its destination according to plan.
