Mammoet USA has partnered with Core Industries, the owner and operator of Theodore Industrial Port near Mobile, Alabama.
Mammoet will work with Core and utilise 400 acres (161.9 ha) of land at the port, positioning the company closer to Mobile’s chemical industry.
Core’s facilities will act as a hub for Mammoet’s specialised equipment, while also serving as a secure storage or staging area for freight moving through the port. Several all-terrain cranes and transporters will be stationed at the site to improve flexibility and response times to local projects, said Mammoet.
The engineered transport provider added that it will work closely with Core to use the heavy lift dock at the port, which can facilitate the movement of ro-ro cargoes.
The agreement expands Mammoet’s coverage along the Gulf Coast and is an addition to Mammoet’s existing partnership with the Port Freeport in Texas.
