Costa Rica's Laninco joins GPLN

June 24 - The Global Project Logistics Network (GPLN) has added Laninco S.A. as its latest member in Costa Rica

According to the GPLN, unlike many other forwarders in the Central American region, Laninco does have a separately established and dedicated project and heavy lift department. Laninco is presently competing for approximately eight further major projects (hydroelectric, geothermal, wind and solar, as well as private sector industrial projects) throughout the region.

In addition to full blown project handling Laninco regularly moves oversized goods and heavy shipments requiring special equipment as normal.

Laninco joins GPLN with strong references from shipping agents handling project cargo and end users in North America and in South America.

Besides Costa Rica, Laninco bids and handles projects in Honduras, Nicaragua and other part of Central America as well.

Laninco is an Anglo-Costa Rican company, and recently handled the movement of approximately 1,200 tonnes of project cargo from port side to the construction site at Las Pailas, where the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad is building a geothermal power station in joint operation with Ormat Systems Ltd.

Laninco coordinated the movement from port to site of 24 heavy and out of gauge units of up to 65 tonnes, plus additional cargo, taking into consideration low and weak bridges which are a particular problem in Costa Rica.

All cargo was cleared from port and delivered ahead of schedule. The latest shipments were the culmination of several months of logistics operations in which Laninco has moved around 2,500 tons of cargo to the site.
