December 27 - Syon Logistics, which recently joined the Project Cargo Network (PCN) representing Dubai, has played a key role in delivering out-of-gauge cargo to the biggest cement factory in the region.

Syon Logistics was responsible for the transport of four pieces of oversized cargo for the facility - including a 119 tonne, cement mill with dimensions of 18.9 m x 4.2 m (pictured below).

Fred Rizk, managing director of Syon Logistics, commented: "Each piece was brought on a specialised break bulk vessel and unloaded to be carried/delivered on a special hydraulic low bed from Jebel Ali port to the final site, by providing all necessary road permission and police escorts."
