Freight forwarder GL Cargo has transported three transformers from Shanghai to Singapore.
The three units weighed 70 tonnes each and were shipped by ocean vessel to Singapore before being loaded onto 12 axle-lines of Cometto self-propelled modular transporters. The cargo was then delivered to the project site in Singapore by road.
“Cargo was discharged by reversing the truck into the building via a depressed sub-floor ramp and resting the horizontal beams onto the base support, so no cranes were used in offloading,” a GLC spokesperson explained.
GL Cargo provides over-dimensional cargo handling via Singapore, and is a member of the WCA network which connects freight forwarders and project cargo companies around the world. WCA operates a qualification process to ensure its members meet strict criteria for experience, quality of service and reliability.
