We Ship What Others Can't

Texas to India on a Deadline

Moving multiple large / heavy compressors and coolers from Texas to India on a tight deadline

 

Problem:

This project, like many others, was burdened with time constraints resulting in the need for precise execution of logistics and planning. Shipper was located in a remote location in South Texas and destination was over 9,000 miles away and across the Atlantic Ocean. Units contained many fall off pieces that required special attention.

 

Statistics:

Origin: Sweeny, TX

Destination: Mumbai India

Timeline: 4 days from pickup to delivery

Texas to Mumbai

Contents of move:

  • 3 Sets of Natural Gas Compressors & Coolers
  • 1171 r/t, Heaviest Piece 70MT
  • Compressors: 448″x212″x141″ / 70 MT each
  • Coolers: 293″x156″x183″ / 17 MT each

 

Solution:

Utilizing our local partners we were able to mobilize three heavy duty oilfield winch trucks. Making best use of this equipment allows us to load cargo without the assistance of cranes therefore speeding up the load out process.

 

Results:

Delivery to port, crating/skidding, shrink wrapping all completed with in 4 working days. The project was completed on time and without issue.
