A Project Example:
Transport of the world‘s largest induction furnaces to China


This order was challenging in more than one way:  4.250 cbm of cargo, 1.300 tons of weight, each of the 6 furnaces weighing 90 Tons a piece and package dimensions of up to 5 meters in width and height with the whole transport to be arranged on short notice.


The 6,70 meter high furnaces had to be shipped in a lying down position. A special hydraulic jacking unit was installed on factory site to do the job.


Also falling into our responsibility was the seaworthy packing incl. a suitable preservation of the cargo to endure a six month storage at the delivery site. For the safe overseas transport special lashing points has to be engineered and affixed on the furnaces.


For the transport to the designated shipping port of Antwerp, the consignment had to be split up. “Smaller” crates were moved in a road convoy at night.


The 6 furnaces could though only be moved by barge. The departure quay close to the factory had to be prepared to handle the weight.


All in all 60 standard trailers, 30 low-bed trailers, 2 mobile cranes and one barge were required to arrange the move in a secure and coordinated way, allowing for the joint shipping of all components on the same charter vessel to China.

The only easy part was the communication for our customer as there was only one direct contact for him:
