Concrete Plant Transport
Continuing its collaboration with the construction industry in Mexico, Tuscor Lloyds project management team was asked to transport a concrete plant.
The first part of the project was divided into two shipments, which took place in mid-August and late September respectively.
For the first shipment, Tuscor Lloyds picked up the parts of the concrete plant from the manufacturers in Murcia, Spain. Consisting of a mixer and auxiliary equipment for the preparation of concrete, the cargo was transported as out of gauge cargo. Due to the difference in the size and weight of each of the parts, Tuscor Lloyds project cargo management team ensured all the parts were grouped according to their characteristics and loaded into the right container in order to maximize the space and efficiency of the shipment. As a final result, the parts were loaded into 3 40ft high-cube containers, 3 40ft open-top containers and 1 40ft flatrack container.
The containers were transported by road 230 km north to the port of Valencia where the cargo was loaded and secured to the container vessel ready for shipment to Veracruz, Mexico.
The first part of the shipment was completed when the ship arrived to the port of Veracruz in mid-August. After being unloaded from the vessel, onsite surveyors inspected the cargo, checking that the cargo had not suffered any damage during the transatlantic transportation. Once confirmed everything was safe, the cargo was delivered to the final recipient.
In early September preparation for the second shipment started. The cargo, which consisted of a group of hoppers, a kneader and several auxiliary pieces, was loaded into 1 high-cube container, 5 open-top containers, 1 40ft flatrack container and 1 20ft flatrack container.
Just as with the first shipment, the cargo was picked up in Murcia, Spain and then transported by road to the port of Valencia where the assigned container vessel was ready to load. Thanks to all our contacts in-situ the cargo was efficiently loaded and secured, thus preventing any possible damage during the transatlantic transportation to Veracruz.
Several days after sailing from the port of Valencia, the vessel arrived to the port of Veracruz where each of the containers was unloaded. At the port, the pieces were carefully examined, and to the satisfaction of everyone involved the cargo was then delivered safe and within the agreed time and
