September 7 - FLS-KAA has arranged the shipment of 440 sections of cement pipe, each weighing 3 tonnes, from Antwerp to Al Ain in the UAE.
FLS-KAA's parent company Fleet Line Shipping (FLS) coordinated the shipment of the pipes, each of which measured 7.3 m long with a diameter of 1.2 m, from Antwerp to Jebel Ali onboard an Empros Lines breakbulk vessel.
HLPFI reported on June 26 that FLS had been appointed as agent for Empros Lines in the Middle East.
On arrival at Jebel Ali port, FLS-KAA customised wooden frames to facilitate the loading of eight pipes onto one 60 ft (18.2 m) trailer, which meant that delivering the consignment 200 km overland to Al Ain only required the use of 55 trailers.
FLS-KAA is a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) in Iraq.
