Heavy Lift Across the World

EXG finds a way

August 25 - Express Global Logistics (EXG), member of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) in India, has delivered a 77-tonne tank measuring 10.36 m x 5.96 m x 6.16 m from Mundra to Antwerp.


EXG explained that with many regular heavy lift liner services suspended between India and Europe due to falling project cargo volumes, there were limited available sailings between the two ports that fitted within the stipulated laycan time frames.

As a result, EXG chose to load the oversize cargo onto a container vessel. This meant that the company had to keep to the container line's fixed schedule, while also meeting the tight delivery deadline of its client.
