C.H. Robinson Moves Chemical Tanks

Shipment from Huehuetoca to Houston

Freight forwarder C.H. Robinson has transported a set of massive chemical tanks from Mexico to Texas.

The breakbulk consignment included three large, horizontal CO2 storage tanks that were loaded in Huehuetoca, Mexico. Weighing 75 tonnes each, the tanks were transported overland and overseas to Freeport, Texas.
“C.H. Robinson’s team worked proactively with the master of the vessel to plan for loading the tanks on 6ʹ x 6” dunnage that would keep the valves undamaged. With this equipment in place, the tanks were then carefully loaded on deck for the voyage from Veracruz to the Port of Houston, Texas,” a spokesperson for C.H. Robinson said.
Based in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, C.H. Robinson provides breakbulk services worldwide and is a member of the Project Logistics Alliance which connect pre-qualified project freight forwarding specialists in over 80 countries worldwide.
