Holleman completes expedited haul to Pirdop

Holleman Bulgaria has completed the delivery of oversize cargoes destined for the Aurubis Bulgaria industrial complex in Pirdop. 

The cargo arrived by river vessel to the port of Ruse-East, Bulgaria and was delivered to the client by road in just three days.

Holleman Bulgaria said that largest piece, which measured 5.4 m wide and 5.1 m in height, made the shipment particularly challenging. Three route studies were completed ahead of the delivery; the route also included passing through a tunnel with just 4 cm of clearance.

The height of the cargo forced Holleman to avoid routes with overhead obstructions. The company decided to travel on a number of secondary roads, which required overhead wires in a number of villages to be lifted.  

Coordination with the police and electricity utilities were key the ensuring that the cargoes were delivered on time.

 

Holleman Bulgaria is a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC).
