Tuscor Lloyds cements concrete equipment shipment

December 30 - Tuscor Lloyds was called in by the manufacturer of a mobile concrete batching plant (pictured below) after it struggled to find an appropriate vessel which could reach the destination within the limited timeframe.

The mobile concrete batching plant had to be delivered to one of the largest cement companies in the world and the deadline could not be missed. Using its knowledge and local contacts, Tuscor Lloyds arranged for multimodal transport by road and sea to deliver the cargo to Mexico City within the timeframe.

The cargo was picked up from the manufacturer in Mercia, Spain and loaded onto a truck. From here it was transported by road to the company's warehouse in Valencia where it was then loaded onto a 40 ft' flat rack, sourced specifically for this shipment.

Due to the shape and size of the cargo (13.8 m x 2.85 m x 4 m), the stevedores had to specially lash the cargo to ensure it was safe and secure for transport by road and sea.

The cargo was safely transported and loaded at the Port of Valencia and shipped as out of gauge cargo to Veracruz, Mexico for unloading. The mobile concrete batching plant was unloaded without any problems and, once ready, the cargo was transported by road to Mexico City.
