In the first quarter of the year, CPC COLI Project Cargo handled more than 10,000 freight tons of cargo for a variety of projects, with heavy lift units ranging in weight from 35 tonnes to 300 tonnes.

The majority of the projects were handled both outbound and inbound Türkiye to various power plants located in West Europe, North Europe, Scandinavia, West Africa, East Africa, the Red Sea region, and the Persian Gulf,” the company said. Transports ranged from sole charters to world-wide logistics solutions, including jacking and skidding services.

Can Yilbasi, business development manager at CPC Coli Project Cargo, explained that “throughout the first quarter our Istanbul team was awarded with charter contracts both for gearless and geared multipurpose vessels”. 

He added that some clients decided to expand the original scope of work, with CPC Coli Project Cargo providing port supervision, pre-carriage road transports, crawler and mobile cranes deployment, and sit erection services.

Regarding the group’s expanding multipurpose fleet, CPC Coli Project Cargo said that more information will be announced later in 2024.
