XLP round-up

Members of the XLProjects (XLP) network have been keeping busy recently, with a variety of projects.

Ba-Shi Yuexin has completed a three-year contract for the Clinker Line project in Luanda.

CSL Asia Shipping faced a challenge when it was asked to transport three wind turbine blade moulds at very short notice. The moulds were at Shanghai’s Zhanghuabang terminal awaiting dispatch to India, but they had not been loaded onto the scheduled vessel.

CSL found a suitable alternative vessel berthing at Luojing terminal, 30 km from Zhanghuabang. An emergency project team worked with the shipper, port and vessel operator to complete booking, Customs clearance, and transfer between the two terminals, and loading.

CSL engineers recently helped with the transportation of three fishing boats from Shanghai to Luanda, Angola, providing accurate measurements and technical drawings of the vessels as per Customs requirements.

Two of the fishing boats measured 36m in length and weighed 250 tonnes; the third was 33m long and weighed 240 tonnes.

Fellow XLP member Ba-Shi Yuexin, meanwhile, has completed a three-year contract for the Clinker Line project – also in Luanda – that saw the Shanghai-based logistics company move 80,000 tonnes of cargo.

The 70 shipments comprised of steel, a cement grinding mill barrel, an engine, transformers and specialised vehicles. Ba-Shi Yuexin oversaw the entire project from collection of the pieces in Shanghai to delivery in Luanda, including Customs clearance and vessel chartering.
