February 10 - Industry experts from the fields of logistics, rigging, engineering and naval architecture will present, in partnership with Breakbulk China 2012, a practical and learned heavy lift technical workshop at the Breakbulk conference in Shanghai

Managers involved in the manufacturer of the equipment to be moved, responsible for procuring or co-ordinating transportation services, or actually providing heavy lift handling and transport, are invited to this interactive workshop.

The workshop is timetabled for Tuesday, February 28, 2012 from 08:30 until 16:00 at the Sheraton Shanghai Hongqio, Shanghai, China.

Organisers ask: Why are there special requirements for packing? What packing specifications do I need to understand? Why is securing so important? Do I need SPMTs to move my tower? Why does vesselstowage matter? Can my critical load move by air?

Technical details of representative heavy lift moves via various modes will be fully discussed during the day while the workshop will utilise numerous case studies with interactive class participation throughout.

The training programme has been put together by Proven Logistics Solutions (PLS) in conjunction with the organisers of the Breakbulk China event.
