Photographed in the gallery below is a recent project handled by Eurogate in the Czech Republic. The cargo was shipped on FCL terms from Shanghai (China) via Hamburg Port in Germany and delivered to Chocen (Czech Republic) in 3 x 40'HC & 1 x 40'FR. Details of the OOG pieces were as follows:
- 2.88 x 2.46 x 1.31m (gross weight: 10.8tns)
- 3.59 x 1.61 x 2.89m (gross weight: 1.4tns)
- 4.26 x 2.32 x 1.61m (gross weight: 11.9tns)
Due to the over-dimensional pieces, the cargo was reloaded in Hamburg onto trucks by cranes and transported onto the Czech Republic. Marek explains; "The cargo was poorly packaged by the shipper and due to heavy rains in Hamburg, the boxes were soaked. Therefore, it was necessary to ensure that the load on the chassis was re-packed and additionally secured to ensure the goods were not damaged as the original packaging was no longer sufficiently stable. Even though these challenges were faced, the shipment was delivered to the customers warehouse on time."
Eurogate Logistics provided a professional service and up-to-date communication. The consignee and the shipper were well-informed at every stage on each development and changes. The customer was especially thankful and positive for the adjustments made by Eurogate to prevent any damage.
