France Cargo International (FCI) has shipped a compressor train from Almelo in the Netherlands to Duisburg, Germany.


The unit measured 21 m in length, 6 m in width and 5 m in height, weighing 180 tonnes.

FCI oversaw the transport via road and then loaded the cargo onto a barge with two 250-tonne capacity Mammoet cranes. The operation faced setbacks due to low water levels and heavy congestion at the terminals.
