June 30 - Fleet Line Shipping (FLS) has coordinated the delivery of a 2,500 cu m consignment of gas turbine generators from the UAE to Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Since the delivery was urgent and there was a lack of available conventional vessels, FLS decided to containerise the entire shipment for delivery to Argentina on board a container ship.
The consignment was loaded into 16 flatrack and 15 open top containers in Jebel Ali. The loading, lashing and transportation to the vessel was completed by FLS in just four days, claimed the company.
Fleet Line Shipping is a member of the Atlas Breakbulk Alliance, which was created earlier this year.
