Tuscor Lloyds’ project management team have just completed a shipment of 8 heavy dump trucks from Antwerp, Belgium to Puerto Cortes, Honduras.
The 272 ton break bulk shipment consisted of 8 wheeled mining dump trucks weighing 34 tons each which were urgently required by a major mining company in Honduras. Tuscor Lloyds was called in to organise the port to port shipment between the port of Antwerp and Puerto Cortés Honduras.
The cargo was already located at the berth in Antwerp awaiting for departure but the client’s needs dramatically changed and they requested our assistance to source a fast sailing option. With this task completed the cargo was moved to our nominated berth under the shipper arrangement where we arranged for cargo to be loaded to our appointed vessel. Whilst such a job would not normally be news worthy this action was completed in a very short amount of time. The dump trucks were loaded under the supervision off our appointed Cargosuper with the last unit being loaded just shortly after 0100hrs Saturday morning allowing both the client and ourselves a restful weekend.
Tuscor Lloyds’ project management team used their knowledge and experience to assist our client in moving heavy awkward cargo to a destination not regularly served by the conventional or breakbulk sector. Of course we managed the process and having the support and working relationship with vessel owners and a first class stevedoring partner in Antwerp is crucial to delivering on our promises to our clients. If you think you may benefit from our assistance with your difficult shipment we’d be happy to talk over your needs and requirements.
