WSS, Convoy Move Critical Oman Cargo

(MENA) Shipment via Sohar

Cargo carriers Wilhelmsen Ships Service and Convoy Logistics Providers have partnered to deliver a "critical" breakbulk shipment from Canada to Oman.

The main cargo was loaded in Calgary, Canada, and shipped to Freeport, Texas, before transfer for ocean freight to Sohar Port in Oman. Additional equipment was delivered from Edmonton, Canada, to Montreal before shipment to Sohar and onward movement to the final destination in Muscat.

“The cargo posed considerable challenges including arranging the packing, mobilizing using suitable trailers from the supplier's locations to the ports of loading, completing required export documentation before the vessel cutoff, sea freight to Sohar Port, import handling and customs clearance, registration of the unit in Oman and delivery to the final destination,” a spokesperson for WSS said.

WSS and Convoy Logistics are members of the Project Cargo Network, a breakbulk association representing carriers in more than 100 countries.
