April 4 - Pentalver has transported a fibreglass lion sculpture from DP World London Gateway to Longleat Safari Park in Wiltshire, UK to celebrate the park's 50th anniversary.

The sculpture, which measured 8 m long by 4.3 m high and weighed around 3 tonnes, was shipped into London Gateway from South Africa in a 40 ft open top container on board Safmarine Highveld.

Pentalver was contracted by Tigers Global Logistics to transport the container from London Gateway to the Port of Tilbury, where the sculpture was loaded onto a low loader for transport overland to Longleat.

"We were first instructed to deliver the lion by crate, however the consignment was too high to travel by road on our super low loader, so our cargo handling team carefully removed the lion sculpture from the casing," explained Carl Wheeler, specialist haulage transport planner at Pentalver.
