September 23 - Project Cargo Network (PCN) members Olicargo (Portugal) and Doublestar (Brazil) teamed up to complete a long-term project contract.
Originating in Aveiro, Portugal during April 2012 the project involved the land and sea transportation of approximately 6,873 tonnes of metallic structures for use in the Manaus Stadium, Brazil.
19,500 cu m of structures was moved using four chartered vessels and more than 500 special trucks.
"This had been a good project but what makes us have huge pride is that we travelled more than 25,000 km without any accidents," says cargo project manager at Olicargo, Joao Ribeiro.
The project was successfully concluded earlier in September 2013.
