February 3 - UK based forwarder Tuscor Lloyds has coordinated the shipment of six steel wire reels to Singapore from the UK and Germany.

The six reels were consolidated into one shipment from the Port of Antwerp to Singapore, with one shipped to the Belgian port from the UK and the other five arriving from Germany via barge.

Unbeknown to the project manager at the start of the shipment, more reels were added to the sailing in the late stages, which required some negotiation with the carrier to secure extra space at the last minute, explained Tuscor Lloyds.

On arrival in Singapore, the six reels were transported from Jurong to the Keppel terminal for onward delivery.

In 2015, Tuscor Lloyds claims to have shipped over 1,000 reels for the oil and hgas industry.
