Tuscor Lloyds recently completed another successful Out of Gauge cross trade from South Africa to Belgium.

The cargo, 2×6040 backwalls measuring 352 x 422 x 162 cm each and weighing a total of 31 tonnes was delivered to Durban port and loaded onto a 40ft flat rack container. Care was taken to ensure the cargo was balanced and secured for marine inspection and protective material was applied to safeguard the backwalls paintwork. 

The cargo was transported from Durban to Antwerp on a direct sailing with the total transit from start to finish of under 30 days. The cargo arrived on time and was released without issue to the consignee.

Derek Griffiths of the Tuscor Lloyds team oversaw this project: “It feels great to be able to serve our clients, even during the tricky times that we are all currently facing.  Another Tuscor Lloyds cross trade shipment completed.”
