Abnormal Oversize Freight

Mitie Ltd,
Nebraska to Plymouth…

The challenge

£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
