June 18 - Two recently completed projects by Arshiya Logistics of Qatar have seen the global logistics service provider move a 750 tonne crane from Qatar to Korea, followed by a consignment of used construction equipment to Malaysia.

The first shipment saw Arshiya Logistics, part of Intergroup Shipping, move a 750 tonne Manitowoc crane from Mesaieed, Qatar to Masan, Korea for a Korean multinational. The crane was dismantled at the QAFCO Fertiliser complex, Mesaieed Industrial City on the east coast of Qatar peninsula and transported in sections to Doha port. The consignor insisted on the consignment being shipped in one movement.

Arshiya chartered Hoegh Line's ro-ro ship Pacific Spirit for the movement. The consignment consisted of 106 pieces. Thirty-eight flat bed trailers and 18 low bed trailers were used, as well as six 16 m trailers.

In the second project, Arshiya moved eight pieces of used construction equipment to a Malaysian destination from Qatar.

The equipment was loaded at Abu Nakla, Qatar and had to be urgently delivered to the client's site at Bukit Beruntung Rawang, Malaysia. The 484 cu m cargo was shipped on a NYK line ro-ro vessel to Port Klang. The voyage took around two weeks.

Arshiya Logistics has joined the International Freight & Logistics Network as project cargo has proved to be a significant growth area for the IFLN.
