The shipment was divided into four lots including general, over-dimensional and breakbulk cargoes. The breakbulk pieces, measuring 6 m x 6 m x 1.5 m and weighing 32 tonnes each, were transported on semi-lowbed trailers. 

A 500 km road haul from the pick-up point to Nhava Sheva port presented several challenges. “A national festival, which could have significantly delayed our schedule, was deftly managed by coordinating with local authorities and rescheduling movements to avoid peak times,” said an EXG representative. 

In accordance with Brazilian regulations, EXG fumigated all wooden packages ahead of delivery. 

EXG is member to the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) in India.
