Guangzhou Sunshine handles ship crane move

September 6 - Guangzhou Sunshine International Logistics Co Ltd managed the shipment of a hydraulic power unit and pressure vessel from Rotterdam to the Nansha shipyard in China.

Guangzhou Sunshine arranged for the equipment, which was to be used for an onboard ship crane, to be shipped as breakbulk cargo from Rotterdam to Hong Kong, before being reloaded onto an ocean barge and sailed to the old port of Huangpu.

After customs clearance and a final reload onto a domestic barge for the journey from Huangpu, the shipment reached its final destination at the Nansha shipyard, Guangzhou.

The cargo included large heavy boxes: one piece weighed in at 42 tonnes, with dimensions 3.8 m x 3.3 m x 6.8 m; the other weighed 26 tonnes and measured 7.5 m x 2.7 m x 3.5 m.

Guangzhou Sunshine International Logistics Co Ltd is a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC).
