The special shipment of three truck heads to the Emirates

The special shipment of three truck heads to the Emirates

Recently the Smart Logistics Group was asked to ship 3 truck heads within a flat rack collapsible 40ft container from Portugal to United Arab Emirates. It required a high precision loading due to the size of the shipment, where two of the truck heads were mounted opposite to each other and the third on top of these two. It was necessary to carefully disassemble some parts of these trucks such as the rear wheels to meet the inland haulage and the maritime transport requirements for another successful shipment. As project managers and expert consultants, the Smart Logistics Group team handled logistics planning at all stages of the project cycle, developing route plans, risk contingency plans, cost assessment and survey services, key points to most of this type of projects.

The shipment was divided into two parts, which were loaded and secured correctly in a 20′ open top and 40′ open top containers, delivered from the Port of Barcelona in Spain to Jawaharlal Nehru Port in Mumbai, India.

Another successful shipment was the work of art “Rise Through Education“, a high-volume sculpture with a total weight of 10.886 kgs made of bronze and brass. Due to their large dimensions (725x625x370 cms), it was loaded in two 40′ flat rack containers. In this case, in order to fully store and secure the sculpture, the use of cargo lashing straps, security seals, PVC cornerpieces, rubber protections and anti-slide mats were needed. This sculpture was placed in a University in India.
