Axis Moves Manaus Engine

C175 Delivered to Lafayette

Breakbulk cargo firm Axis Shipping has delivered a Caterpillar engine to the U.S. from Brazil.

The over-dimensional consignment was loaded in Manaus, Brazil, and comprised a C175 engine and auxiliary equipment. A team from Axis was responsible for carrying out all pick up, mooring, packing, stuffing and shipping procedures.

“Even in a remote area of Brazil, near to Amazonia Rainforest, our team ensured that the shipment was carried out efficiently and safely. The characteristics of the cargo required specific care, and the use of special machinery to hoist and move it was necessary to ensure the preservation of the engine parts,” a spokesperson for Axis said.

Based in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, Axis is a representative of the WCA network, which connects breakbulk carriers in 188 countries.
