Guangzhou Sunshine pipes up

May 21 - China's Guangzhou Sunshine Int'l Logistics has coordinated the delivery of concrete pipes from a factory in Guangdong to the jobsite in the mountainous area of Guangxi.

Guangzhou Sunshine was responsible for the transportation from the factory to the quayside, where the pipes were loaded onto a river vessel for shipment to the jobsite. The pipes, each of which measured 6.1 m long and had a diameter of 1.8 m, were then discharged and transported by road to their final destination.



The company also shipped three 40-tonne fishing boats, each measuring 24 m x 4.6 m x 8.5 m, from Zhuhai, Guangdong to Tamatave in Madagascar onboard a BBC Chartering vessel.



Guangzhou Sunshine is a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) in China.
