The Logistics Team at Wilhelmsen Ships Service in Mumbai
has just completed the handling of a specialized project of
oversized vehicles from Nhava Sheva port which is destined
for Dakar in Senegal. The cargo is consigned to the
government of Senegal.
Wilhelmsen Ships Service India won the contract through
a local bid against major competitors. Altogether, 16
oversized vehicles have been loaded onto nine flat-bed units
each 40 foot long making them over-length and over-width in
size. Wilhelmsen Ships Service India Logistics team, based in
Mumbai, had to submit a unique loading plan in order to
obtain the ship owner’s approval. The entire vehicle
consignment was then loaded onto the flat beds and then
transported to the dock side alongside the vessel comfortably
without any obstacles.
Wilhelmsen Ships Service India is now becoming a
specialist for handling such unique projects and many more
are in the pipe line to be handled in near future. The
company was able to provide an extremely cost-competitive
solution to the customer by successfully loading two vehicles
in one flat bed together.
Wilhelmsen Ships Service India has increased its business
in India to form a strong base in projects, freight forwarding
and other related segments. It has also recently handled a
number of other oversized projects and offers expertise in
ISO tank containers.
