Breakbulk carriers Europe Cargo and LCL Logistix have delivered an out-of-gauge shipment of wooden cases from Belgium to India.
The cargo was collected from Herstal in Belgium to Nhava Sheva in India from where it was transported 900 kilometers by road to DAP Nagpur. The shipment was booked with Hapag Lloyd from Antwerp and LCL Logistix handled delivery in India.
“Whilst the cargo was not heavy, three of the five cases had OOG dimensions. We picked up cargo with low-bed trailers in Herstal and stuffed the cargo in Antwerp on 2 x 40’FR containers,” said Sven Gillemot, general manager at Europe Cargo.
Both firms are members of the Project Cargo Network, a breakbulk association which connects freight forwarders worldwide.
