The shipment comprised 30 machines, with the heaviest piece weighing 58 tonnes and the longest measuring over 19 m.  

DHL Industrial Projects said that due to adverse weather conditions, loading had to be halted on multiple occasions during the 10-day operation.

Claire Hamilton, category director - metal fabrications & logistics, Terex supply management and transport, said: “From the planning stages right through to the enormous operation of loading our equipment onto the vessel, all stakeholders worked proactively to ensure that our 30 machines were loaded safely to the vessel with no incidents or accidents.”
