Recently, Alexander Global Logistics (AGL), a founding member of New Silk Road Network (NSRN), was contracted to transport 20 excavators from China to Germany. Upon receiving the request, the AGL team in Germany turned to Columbia Pro-Rail Transport Services, also a founding member of NSRN, and Hyundai Glovis. The Columbia Pro Rail team organized the pre-carriage and transport under FOB terms from Changsha to Shanghai using four oversized trucks.

The entire shipment was divided into three lots:

1. Excavator - AC90UF: 4 packages, 6.49m x 2.32m x 2.7m, 8400 kilograms

2. Excavator - AC60UF: 8 packages, 5.5m x 1.98m x 2.6m, 5770 kilograms

3. Excavator - AC25F: 8 packages, 4.24m x 1.5m x 2.455m, 2650 kilograms

The Columbia Pro Rail Team organized the handling at the Port of Shanghai, where the cargo was loaded, bearing in mind the specific loading conditions. AGL was also very particular with the lashing and securing of these excavators as per their clients' requests.

One of the biggest challenges the Columbia Pro Rail Team overcame was arranging the transport of these 20 excavators a week before the Chinese New Year, 2021. The excavators are already on their way to the Port of Bremerhaven on a Hyundai Glovis Ro-Ro vessel.

Mr. Jan-Moritz Höler, Team Manager Sales at AGL praised the Columbia Pro Rail team and cited Mr. Fenny Swei for completing the job impeccably and professionally. This project is yet another example of the importance of having the right partners. NSRN congratulates AGL and Columbia Pro-Rail Transport for joining forces and completing this arduous task!
