The package was measured at the following dimensions: 19.60 m (L) x 6.50 m (W) x 3.80 m (H), and was shipped from the West Coast of India to Sohar Port via breakbulk on a container vessel.
The scope of the project included berthing a container vessel on a bulk terminal as this was not EXG's regular carrier. The EXG team had to secure several permits and approvals to berth a container vessel on a bulk terminal. EXG required the approval and coordination from different authorities.
"Our team's ability to overcome unexpected challenges with a positive, problem-solving approach made for a timely delivery of the cargo and happy clients!"
An additional shore crane was required for the lifting operations and had to be arranged at short-notice, keeping in mind the weight and dimensions of the package. It was well thought-out and executed within the time constraints.
EXG closely coordinated with the shipping line, terminal, and port officials to load the cargo as the vessel berthed there. This required precision, safety, and stability parameters in place.
EXG discovered a cost-effective solution for their client by using breakbulk on container vessels instead of conventional breakbulk. Their team was responsible for the door delivery of the cargo at the destination port, which included receiving the package under hook alongside the vessel, customs clearance of the package, and then transportation on axles to the final delivery site.
"The final delivery was challenging as obstacle removal was required en route, including the dismantling of additional obstacles at the final site, which was arranged and coordinated successfully along with our partner in Oman."
