October 17 - CNC Freight Services has transported materials for the Diyarbakir project in Turkmenistan, from Malaysia to the Turkmenbashi port where DGT Logistics Turkmenistan undertook transportation to the job site.

CNC operated two AN-124 air-charters for the project earlier this year, which HLPFI reported on April 26, 2013.

For the most recent part of this project, CNC part-chartered a geared conventional vessel to transport three different consignments, comprising of diving equipment, pressure vessels and a pedestal crane.

The total shipment weighed in at 2,110 tonnes, with the heaviest piece weighing 95 tonnes and measuring 14.5 m long, 5.1 m wide and 5.6 m tall.

The cargo was shipped from Malaysia to Derince, Turkey for oncarriage, using the Volga-Don Canal into the Caspian Sea.

Another pressure vessel was shipped from Singapore via a ro-ro service to Derince, which had a shorter transit time enabling this shipment to coincide with the arrival of the conventional vessel. All the cargo was subsequently transhipped and loaded together on the same river vessel.

From Derince, a subcontractor for CNC arranged river transportation to the port of Turkmenbashi. At the port, DGTL handled the offloading of the cargo from the river barge and the final 110 km transportation to the jobsite.
