Wilhelmsen Ships Service has transported two crew supply boats from port Rashid in the UAE to Lomé, Togo.

Each boat weighed approximately 110 tonnes. The first measured 38.1 m x 8 m x 9 m and the second 39.6 m x 8 m x 9 m.

Wilhelmsen’s project scope included identifying a suitable breakbulk vessel, the coordination and preparation of the required cradles for the boats and export handling.

Separately, Star Shipping has discharged cargo, including a car body crane and accessories, at Karachi port in Pakistan.
