The company used two mobile cranes to unload the cargo from ship to truck, as well as port cranes for unloading other packages.

Route survey, unloading, port operations, transshipments, slingers, storage, permits, heavy transport, and other logistics processes were also carried out by 3pl.

The heaviest piece of cargo weighed over 154 tonnes. 3p Logistics’ team used a heavy 10-axle modular Scheuerle trailer with an extendable beam and ballast tractor to transport this piece.

A total of 33 trucks were used to complete this shipment.

“We will continue to confidently participate in European energy projects in 2023,” said a spokesperson for the company.
