Olympic effort from FESCO Logistics

December 31 - FESCO Logistics, a provider of worldwide logistics services and a division of FESCO North America, is busy with the shipment of a 100 tonne roadheader to Russia for use in the construction of the site of the 2014 winter Olympics in Sochi

The ALPINE MINER ATM 105-IC is a boom-type roadheader of the 100 tonne class, used for mechanised tunneling in hard and abrasive rock formations.

The cargo was loaded onto a MAFI trailer, secured by 15 chain lashings, in Baltimore, Maryland and carried via ro-ro vessel to Derince, Turkey and then transshipped to Novorossiysk, Russia.

To determine the location of the equipment at any time, FESCO Logistics is using a SaviTrak™ GPS sensor unit. Savi Networks provides automated wireless monitoring to improve shipment visibility and security across multiple transportation modes including ocean vessels, truck and rail.
