Amix steps up with crane shipment

Amix has handled gantry crane components at the Lynnterm terminal in Vancouver, Canada. 

28 components arrived at the terminal from China on board G2 Ocean’s vessel Merlin Arrow. The heaviest components included pieces for rail-mounted gantry cranes, which measured 83 ft (25.3 m) and weighed 47 tons (42.6 tonnes).

At the Lynnterm terminal, Amix mobilised its barge crane Arctic Turk to offload the components. 

The cargoes were then loaded onto two barges from Amix’s fleet for transportation to the company’s yard in Surrey, where the Arctic Turk was once again used to offload the components.  

For the oversized units that could not be transported by rail, Amix coordinated with the companies responsible for the road transportation - Loadstar Transportation and Xylan Logistics – to load the parts onto trailers using forklifts.

The components were subsequently delivered to their final destination in Regina, Saskatchewan.
