CLIENT: Paterson and Candy
PROJECT: Water Rehabilitation Project in 5 States of Nigeria
The tonnage transported / shipped from 3 continents totaled 18000m³, with heavy lifts up to 35 tons. The nature of the cargo in the main suggested the utilisation of containers. However, items such as storage tanks and other mixers had to be shipped as break-bulk cargo.
It is important to mention that in all instances, ships gear had to be used for off-loading since the Lagos Port facilities were out of order. We established a consolidation warehouse in Lagos from the point of distribution to the various sites/ locations throughout the country.
In all instances, adherence to the agreed SOP was a priority and to achieve this, regular meetings between Management, Project Engineers and Freight Forwarding and Logistics Contractor took place.
