The Japan to Mexico Project Cargo

Smart Logistics Group continues its participation in logistics projects for the oil, gas and energy industry in Mexico.

The freight fowarder Smart Logistics Group developed a shipping project for the Company Gas Natural in Mexico for the generation division of the company, in order to transport the parts needed to repair an electric transformer that has been damaged since late last year, in the combined heat power plant located in the village of Tuxpan, Mexico.”

The equipment was manufactured by the Mitsubishi power generation division in Kobe, Japan; it consisted of a total of 63 packages of 45 tons and 125 m3.

The shipping was divided into 2 phases:


63 packages


45 Tons

125 m3


Kalamata Vessel – MSC

The first phase was divided into 2 parts. First part with GMCB system and its accessories were loaded into an oversized 40’flat rack shipment which departed the 25th of May from the port of Kobe on board of MSC vessel named Kalamata.

The second part of this first phase was an airfreight of a total of 8 packages of 150 kilograms with hazardous goods. It departed from Osaka the 8th of June with Air France airline.
Cargo took 4 days to reach Mexico City’s airport to be immediately moved up to Tuxpan.


Montana Vessel – BBC

Second phase with the auxiliary transformer main body and parts, another seafreight of a total of 51 packages, was ready to be shipped the 17th of June. For this phase was necessary to rely on BBC shipping company services due to the extraordinary measures of some components. Nominated vessel for his shipment, the BBC MONTANA that originally intended to arrive the 18th of June, had to delay its entry until the 25th due to the presence of a typhoon in the area.

All the operation was made under the direct supervision of the Smart Logistics project cargo department who traveled to Kobe city. Besides operational supervision by Smart Logistics Group and its Japanese agents, a maritime surveyor verified all the operation was made as planned.
