November 4 - Bangkok, Thailand-based, The Freight Company Ltd, has transported five rail track laying machines from the Saphli railway station in Chumphon, southern Thailand, to the port of Laem Chabang.
The Freight Company transported two 80-tonne mobile cranes, a hydraulic trailer truck, a low bed trailer truck and three flatbed trailer trucks to the railway station, in order to lift, secure, lash, chain and deliver five Plasser & Theurer rail track laying machines to the port. From here the machines were loaded onto the vessel, BBC Maple Lotta, and shipped to Genoa, Italy.
As the ground had been softened by persistent and heavy rainfall in the days before the operation, the team had to pay particular attention to the placement of the mobile cranes and layout of the supporting steel plates, in order to prevent the cranes from subsiding.
The Freight Company Ltd is a member of the Global Project Logistics Network (GPLN).
