Express Global Logistics Pvt Ltd recently executed a cement mill project in Almonaster la real, Spain. It involved shipping and transportation of 2 nos x 57 ton mill shell measuring 9 x 5.5 x 5.5 (LBH in meters) , 4 nos x 38 ton mill heads measuring 5.5 x 5.5 x 2 (LBH in meters), various accessories from Mumbai to Almonaster la real being the destination in Spain.

The desired port nearest to the final destination Almonaster la real was Huelva port in the south of Spain. Huelva port being a small low traffic port with majority of coaster and barges operating in this region, it was very difficult to get a huge vessel induced into Huelva which was not a feasible budget for small volumes.

With delivery deadline proceeding near and non availability of a direct sailing from Mumbai port to Huelva port, EXG had to ship all these cargos to Antwerp on Rickmers Linie vessel. Transit time was a committed, however on the west bound lap from Mumbai to Antwerp the ship was delayed due to have taken refuge under storm at Gibraltar for almost 10 days plus, posing a great challenge to EXG to deliver the cargos on time. In order to compensate the delay EXG had to charter a small coaster gearless vessel kept waiting for 2-3 days and docking alongside the ship, with the cargo discharged direct from Rickmers Linie vessel to the coaster and immediately secured and set sail to Huelva port within the next 5 days.

At Huelva cargos were discharged using Heavylift shore cranes from the ship's hold by tandem operation and loaded on to hydraulic axles and transported to final receiver's facility within the next 24 hours with all custom documentations and road permits done in advance.
