Tuscor Lloyds projects team have recently completed a shipment of approximately 475 tonnes of support equipment from Aqaba, Jordan to Felixstowe, England.  18 Flat rack containers and 7 dry vans were used to transport a variety of trucks, generators and land rovers, as well as some of the shippers own containers.

Aqaba is situated at the northeastern tip of the Red Sea and serves as Jordan’s only coastal city. Tuscor Lloyds were asked to transport support equipment to Felixstowe in the most efficient way.

The entire shipment was moved to Aqaba port using trucks before being loaded onto the feeder vessel. The cargo was then transhipped in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia in order to connect with the fastest and most direct sailing to Felixstowe as researched by our team. Special requirements during the project included an escort for each truck from the loading depot to Aqaba port in Jordan, due to the sensitivity of the cargo.

Tuscor Lloyds were called in to complete the shipment as their knowledge and experience was necessary to handle the complexities of the job. In notoriously difficult terrain a total transit time of 18 days was achieved by the team. This project serves as another example of the diversity of Tuscor Lloyds projects and the commitment to handling all types of cargo. Whatever your shipment may be we are happy to piece it together for you.
