Pressure shipment for Fleet Line Shipping

November 28 - Dubai-based Fleet Line Shipping (FLS) has shipped two 106-tonne gas flotation pressure vessels from a jobsite in Hamriya free zone in Sharjah, UAE to Kuwait.

FLS first arranged road transportation of the pressure vessels, which each had the dimensions 24 m x 6.9 m x 8.5 m, to the Hamriya port, using multi-axle hydraulic low bed trailers.

A geared vessel was chartered, which loaded the cargo at Hamriya and then discharged it at the Shuwaiba port in Kuwait, before inland transportation to the project site, 135 km from the port.

During the delivery to the final jobsite, FLS were required to temporarily remove obstacles, such as sign boards, traffic signals and road barriers, in coordination with traffic and police authorities.

Fleet Line Shipping is a member of the Global Project Logistics Network (GPLN).
