January 18 - Member of the Project Cargo Network (PCN) in Italy, Fortune International Transport, and fellow PCN member in Oman, Muscat International Shipping & Logistics (MIS), have worked together to ship a large asphalt mixing plant from Italy to Oman.

Fortune International transported the over-dimensional pieces from a factory in Italy to the Port of Venice, where the company coordinated loading operations onto the vessel BSLE Teresa for shipment to Oman's Sohar Port. The consignment had a total volume of over 2,000 cu m.

On arrival in Sohar, MIS organised the unloading operations and clearance formalities. The entire plant was then delivered by road to the site.

Once mounted and installed, the asphalt mixing plant will be capable of producing up to 320 tonnes of bitumen per hour.
