Europe Cargo Ships 1100 Ton Steel Plates

FPS Group member Europe Cargo recently shipped 1100 ton steel plates from Antwerp to Hamad port in Qatar.

Europe Cargo received a request from one of their shippers  and was asked to check the options for shipping 1100 ton steel plates in a single lot. Due to Letter of Consignment, the shipment was required to leave Antwerp latest on 15/07 and arrive in Hamad port on or before 15/08.

Due to the fact that there are no regular conventional sailings for Hamad and chartering was too expensive of an option, the shipment did have its unique challenge. However, a solution was found. Europe Cargo connected with a RORO carrier that offered direct service from Antwerp to Hamad port on mv Morning Chant.

The cargo was delivered by the shipper using 42 trucks in Antwerp port. Europe Cargo then arranged also the discharging ex-truck direct on 13×40’mafi trailers.

The vessel sailed on 13/07 from Antwerp and arrived at Hamad port on 05/08 and the shipment was a success.

This helps lower costs tremendously & reduce the miles travelled. By building more volume destined to the same distribution center, transit time is also improved as compared to a traditional parcel / LTL service.
