HOW WE DID IT
Tuscor Lloyds recently completed an Out Of Gauge door-to-door project to the USA.
Weighing in at 23,000kg and overheight, the cargo was collected loose from the customer’s facility by low-loader vehicle and taken to our Felixstowe depot. The cargo was loaded and secured to 40ft flat rack container, surveyed, and taken to Felixstowe quay.
The Flatrack was loaded at Felixstowe and discharged Houston 22 days later.
On arrival, the cargo was custom cleared, devanned and loaded to a U.S low-loader vehicle where it was delivered to the client’s site the very next day.
Derek Griffiths, of the Tuscor Lloyds Shipping Team, oversaw this project:
“The Tuscor Lloyds team pulled out all of the stops for this project. From handling the entire supply chain, paperwork, marine securing and customs processes at both ends – this project commanded a full suite of services. What I personally love so much about this type of shipment is calling upon our specialist logistics knowledge. Throughout the whole process we kept our client fully updated about the cargo’s status. Tuscor Lloyds do what we do best allowing our customers to do what they do best.”
