C.H. Robinson Transports Project Cargo for Power Plant
17th February 2021
The project logistics experts at C.H. Robinson recently undertook a project to transport equipment from Bulgaria and Ireland to California for a power plant company.
In Bulgaria, the gasifier and stairs were divided into nine breakbulk pieces which were then loaded onto an ocean vessel for the 48-day journey across the water to California. The largest piece measured 12.55 x 3.29 x 3.45m and weighed 11.9mtn. Once on land, the cargo was loaded onto trucks and transported 460km to the company's plant.
Meanwhile in Ireland, machine parts were loaded onto 11 x flat-racks, 7 x open-tops, and 4 x high-cubes and shipped across the ocean. A total of 265.6mtn and 990cbm was transported from Ireland and arrived 40 days later.
The C.H. Robinson team secured ocean transports, organised trucking to and from the ports, arranged necessary cranes, secured permits & road escorts, attended to the required customs brokerage and ensured all necessary paperwork was in order. The project went off without a hitch and in a safe and timely manner thanks to the experts at C.H. Robinson and their suite of services.
