Nebraska to Plymouth…
£1.5 million, 75 tonne out of gauge industrial boiler from Nebraska to Plymouth
A last minute change of position by the American railway authority meant we could not rail this boiler to our preferred port of exit of Baltimore and then to UK.
Our American agent sourced a last minute road freight option to transport to Houston where it was stored for a week
It was loaded onto a Chipolbrok heavy weight ship and offloaded in Antwerp for onward sea and road transport to Plymouth.
5000 miles, 75 tonnes, 13.5m x 4m x 4m, 9 months planning
On-time and on budget
