The 117-tonne vessels were received at a container terminal and unloaded with terminal gantry cranes. A team from EGL then oversaw transport 900 kilometers inland by road, to avoid unstable infrastructure on coastal routes.

“It was a quite challenging operation scheme that was performed and completed, despite the difficult conditions … EGL achieved this success through careful planning without sacrificing safety,” a spokesperson for the firm said.
