October 6 - Project logistics provider FOX Brasil has coordinated the door-to-door delivery of a 56-tonne boiler from the USA to Salvador, Brazil.
FOX initially organised the movement of the oversize boiler from Ferrysburg, Michigan to the Port of Norfolk in Virginia.
Although the fastest route would have been to direct the shipment through Ohio and Maryland, FOX explained that Ohio denied permission for the heavy haul.
Therefore, the Brazilian company was required to route the consignment through the states of Indiana and Kentucky, which added several miles and significant time to the journey.
On arrival in Norfolk, the boiler was loaded onto the deck of a containership and shipped to Brazil's Port of Salvador, where it was unloaded and transported 60 km to the job site.
