Transport solutions. The delivery of heavy-weight and oversized equipment from Italy
Task – to deliver 3 pieces of industrial equipment from Italy to Belarus. Dimensions of each piece of equipment: 8100 х 3600 х 3600 mm, weight – 34 tons. The terms of delivery were limited to 30 days since the transport order placement including the time for getting special permissions.
Solution – road delivery from the shipper to a German port, ferry delivery to a Baltic port, road delivery to the consignee in Minsk.
The costs of delivery were optimized by excluding transit via Poland. During the shipment due to bad weather conditions the transportation of the oversized cargo was temporarily prohibited. To avoid time losses the freight forwarder found a non-standard decision for this shipment. It took us 21 days to prepare all necessary permissions for transit. Transit time – 8 days. The client found the transport costs reasonable. The cargo was delivered to the consignee on time.
