DC Logistics Brasil Ships Machinery to Hawaii
7th June 2018
DC Logistics Brasil was founded in 1994 with 11 offices across the country. During their 24 years of service, they have handled numerous project cargo and heavy lift shipments. A recent project has involved machinery to Hawaii.
A DC Logistics spokesperson comments; "The destination was a challenge as there was no regular service of this route for cargo of this size and weight. The shipment consisted of 6 loose pieces - the largest of which being a generator measuring 5.40 x 4.25 x 3.75m at 28tns and a rotor measuring 6.05 x 2.20 x 2.00m at 22.7tns. Despite the rotor being 6.05m long, the base is only 2m long meaning it was a heavy concentrated unit."
The cargo was shipped from Paranagua in Brazil to Port Hueneme in California (USA) using a MAFI trailer with the smaller forkliftable pieces handled as loose. It was then transshipped to Hawaii by a local agent.
