Cleveland's heaviest load of all time

October 4 - Jumbo Shipping's Stella Prima arrived at the Port of Cleveland carrying a shipment that included a 286 tonne transformer destined for an AEP power plant in East Brilliant, Ohio.

The port says that the transformer is the heaviest piece of cargo that it has ever handled.

Stella Prima used its own cranes to unload the massive transformer directly onto an on-dock 16-axle rail car, specifically designed for such heavy cargoes.

The transformer was unloaded by the ship's crew, a 13-man crew from the International Longshoremen's Association and a rigging company from Texas, with the work being coordinated by Federal Marine Terminals.

HLPFI understands that CSX will inspect the rail car today to make sure it is ready for travel.
