Project cargos to mines in Africa by Global Cargo Line

10 May 2016

Global Cargo Line are Africa Logistics Network members in Congo Republic and Lebanon. They are pleased to report one of their new project in Africa, to Maputo, Mozambique. Here below some words from them:

One of our Projects that we had is to ship a used Komatsu Excavator PC 400 on chains to Maputo from Lebanon; we were very squeezed in time due to the project tight deadline.

The machine is about 30 tons of weight and 167 CBM of volume; we were responsible to transport the cargo from the loading place in South of Lebanon to its destination in Maputo.

Low bed trailer was used to transport the excavator to port of loading after taking care of all roads and bridges procedures, and then our experts at port handled the cargo and loaded it on board of vessel.

The main complication in this shipment was at the port of transshipment in Antwerp, where the excavator has suffered from Oil leaking from its hydraulic system which caused the machine to be immobile and the rejection from the carrier to load the equipment in this condition, which forced the excavator to miss its vessel to the final destination.

But we have overcome this problem successfully with great efforts and lots of cooperation with several parties; we have sent our engineers in Belgium to repair the machines at site, after that we have managed to transfer the machine to a second quay in Antwerp port in order for it to catch the next week vessel with another shipping line that we have agreed with at last minute.

Finally the shipment has arrived on time and within its time limit.

We are very proud of our teams in Lebanon and in Europe for the accomplishment that they have done in this consignment.
