Long distance successes for Ahlers

December 13 - Global offices of worldwide project cargo forwarder Ahlers have earned their Air Miles after organising two project movements that clocked up more than 15,000 km in distance.

In the first movement, an Indian customer required Ahlers India and Ahlers China Guangzhou to organise the surface transport of a 6.65 m wide cutting wheel weighing 43 tonnes from a steel plant at Zhuhai, located on the Pearl River. The wheel was moved to a loading quay in Nansha, also on the Pearl River delta. The cargo was then shipped to Chennai, India.

The distance of the land transport was more than 500 km and performed at night on Chinese roads made treacherous by heavy rain. The road survey and escort was undertaken by Ahlers China Guangzhou.

However, this distance was dwarfed by a 15,000 km shipment organised by Ahlers via Ahlers St Petersburg for Navoi mining. This saw the movement of metallurgical-related items from West Jordan, Utah, USA to Zarafshan, Uzbekistan. A multimodal shipment involving heavy trucks, ocean vessels and railway wagons; with reloading in transhipment ports of Houston and St Petersburg. Ahlers took care of all documentation for the shipment.
