Breakbulk cargo firm Express Global Logistics, or EXG, has transported two over-dimensional HP Heaters from Chakkan to Mumbai Port, in western India.
Each heater weighed 41.4 tonnes and measured 14 meters in length, 5 meters in width and 6 meters in height. The delivery was completed by road, 530 kilometers from Chakkan in the Pune district of Maharashtra state.
During survey work for the transport, specialists from EXG found a new bridge had been constructed on the usual route and hence had to complete additional planning to find an alternate route.
“EXG engaged 10 and 8 hydraulic axles and 2 prime movers for this operation,” a spokesperson for EXG said.
Headquartered in Mumbai, EXG provides multisurface logistics and heavy equipment rentals throughout India. The firm is a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium, or WWPC, which connects independent project cargo forwarding and breakbulk companies around the globe.
