The project logistics division of Polaris Shipping Agencies, our members from the United Arab Emirates, share the completion of their latest project for a prestigious local client.

Polaris was approached by their client to ship around fifty-five units of used construction equipment including Toyota vehicles, Fraste multi-drilling rigs, Komatsu excavators, and wheel loaders to Mauritania.

"Our scope included door-to-door delivery with responsibility commencing upon pick-up from the suppliers local storage yard, up to delivery in Mauritania via Port Nouakchott."

Due to the lack of regular liner breakbulk or RO/RO possibilities to West Africa, Polaris planned with container operators for a shipment on special equipment using an assortment of DVs, open tops and flat racks. A few additional heavy units, weighing over 41 tons, were shipped as breakbulk on a container vessel.

The project - which had a strict arrival deadline - was shipped within a period of two months to the satisfaction of all stakeholders.
