A client of ours, a major player in the coating of pipes, has requested us to move pipes with lengths over 12 meters from Kabil, Batam Island to the United Kingdom.
In good cooperation with our client, we decided to move the pipes on 35 x 40ft FLAT Racks with and without overlength. Our branch in Singapore arranged to load at the client’s site in Kabil as well as the transport of the FLAT Racks from the site to the port. From Batam Island, the containers were brought with a barge to the container terminal in Singapore for direct loading into the ocean vessel.
This project is a good example of how we involved the right people, equipment and network. Our ocean freight departments in Singapore and the Netherlands worked closely together. Another important element in this project was the trust we got from our client. They appreciated our knowledge and experience and relied on it.
The first batch of the project was executed in time and without any issues. In the upcoming months the remaining batches will follow.
