April 10 - V. Alexander - a member of the Cargo Equipment Experts (CEE) network representing Germany - has completed a 1,500 ton (1360.7 tonne) project shipment from various points across Germany to the Russian city of Izhavsk.

The consignment was made up of heavy compressor stations, the largest of which weighed 39 tons (35.4 tonnes).

The recipient was a Russian military base and therefore V. Alexander had to provide highly stringent shipment documentation including: block Customs clearance; extremely precise pre-notices about the arrival of trucks; as well as vehicle driver names and identification documents.

Adding to the difficulty of the shipment, parts of the 3,500 km route were subject to extreme winter weather conditions.
