HOW WE DID IT
On the 15th December, Tuscor Lloyds completed an Out of Gauge project from Antwerp to Veracruz. This project was challenging for the team at Tuscor Lloyds but with innovative planning & due diligence, the project was a success.
The Out of Gauge cargo was loaded and lashed at the port of loading (Antwerp) onto two 40FT flack racks. Due to this cargo containing a piece weighing 36 tonnes, it took precise planning to ensure sufficient spreading of the weight was considered to prevent point load on the flat rack. Both Out of Gauge cases were lifted on board the vessel by means of a Kalmar gantry crane.
Difficulties we experienced included delayed barge discharge from Antwerp, difficulty loading to the MAFI trailers and reloading the cargo onto the vessel in a timely manner.
Despite the challenges and difficulties, our experienced operations team handled and coordinated the process to the highest standard, resulting in another successful project and happy customer.
MIRELLA CASTLE, SHIPPING AGENT:
“Against all odds, with lack of trucks, vessel space and special equipment, I’ve been able to very proudly complete the job within the budget price for the satisfaction of the client and at the same time I would like to thank the carriers CMA and so many subcontracts in the process who made this.”
