C.H. Robinson handles the pressure 

C.H. Robinson has handled the movement of a pressure vessel from Texas to Houston City Docks for onward transportation to the UK. 

Measuring 38 ft 9 inches (11.8 m) in length and weighing 140 tons (127 tonnes), the pressure vessel was loaded on to a specialised trailer at the plant in Texas. 

Once at the port, the C.H. Robinson team negotiated to keep the cargo loaded on the truck for six days until the vessel was ready to load, without incurring any detention charges.

The pressure vessel was subsequently loaded onto a Rickmers-Line vessel for transportation to the port of Antwerp. 

C.H. Robinson is a member of the Project Logistics Alliance (PLA), representing Canada, Singapore and the USA.
