Cased Cargo Transport

6 Out of gauge flat rack containers and 1 high cube container shipped from Southampton, UK to Doha, Qatar.

Tuscor Lloyds was requested by another UK freight forwarder to handle the ocean transportation of six out of gauge 40ft flat rack containers from UK to Qatar. This shipment was made up of multiple cargoes including an emergency air compressor and multiple diesel generators.

The cargo was ready at the Port of Southampton and Tuscor Lloyds was asked to organise space on a container vessel which could take the flat rack containers, and the high cube and transport the cargo to Doha, Qatar.

The two largest cargoes weighed in at over 20 tons each and had dimensions of 8 x 3.3 x 4 meters, some of the cargo pieces where slightly smaller and in-gauge (height) which allowed for the 40ft flat racks to be stacked on top of each other. By stacking the flat rack containers, Tuscor Lloyds were able to fit the total shipment in to a smaller space.

All six of the flat racks had to be checked twice over to ensure that each cargo piece was safely and completely secured to the containers for the ocean transportation to Qatar. Thanks to the experienced stevedores dock side at the port of Southampton the cargo was quickly cleared for shipment and loaded onto the vessel.

The cargo arrived at the port of Doha, where the flat racks were unloaded onto low loader trucks, and transported to site by road. The multimodal shipment arrived on time and in perfect condition thanks to all parties involved.
