Asphalt Plant

80 ton RO-RO shipment of Asphalt Plant and Scalping Screen Transported from Mexico to Libya via Antwerp.

Tuscor Lloyds has just completed the transportation of some heavy equipment needed for the construction industry in Libya. The cargo involved 4 pieces making up an Asphalt Plant and Scalping Screen which together weighed more than 80 tons.

Tuscor Lloyds took over management of this cargo once the equipment had been delivered to the Port of Veracruz in Mexico (the delicate equipment had been built around specially manufactured trailer chassis. Due to the delicate nature of the cargo they could not be top lifted by conventional cranes and could only be lashed to the shipment from dedicated points on each chassis.) The cargo was delivered to the port of loading Veracruz in Mexico and was transported as RO-RO cargo and was loaded / unloaded to the vessels using truck / tractor units.

Once the RORO cargo was loaded to the vessel each unit was securely lashed to the vessel hold using heavy duty ratchet straps which would keep the cargo completely fixed during the sea transportation between ports.

This heavy equipment shipment was trans-shipped from the Port of Veracruz to the Port or Antwerp, Belgium where it was loaded and lashed to another vessel for the final journey to the port of Misurata, Libya.

Tuscor Lloyds experienced project management in Mexico and the United Kingdom handled this RORO project cargo every step of the way and the equipment arrived safely at the port of Misurata where it was unloaded from the vessel and released to the local handlers who transported the cargo by road to its final delivery point.
