December 15 - Fleet Line Shipping has coordinated the transport of 1,200 tonnes of steel plates from Ukraine to Iraq.

The cargo was first shipped onboard a breakbulk vessel from Ukraine to Jebel Ali, where all relevant documentation was organised, before being re-loaded onto the same vessel and delivered to the Iraqi port of Umm Qasr.

Fleet Line's office in Dubai worked together with its branch office in Iraq, in order to organise Customs clearance in Iraq and oncarriage to the final destination, as well as assisting the lifting operations on site.

Fleet Line is no stranger to doing business in Iraq, having recently delivered 800 cu m of oilfield equipment from Abu Dhabi to Erbil, via Turkey's Mersin port. The company's Iraqi office handled the Customs clearance at the border.
