AGL Ships Steam Drums from Korea to Hamburg

About 3 months ago, AGL was approached by one of their main customers to device a concept for moving 6 steam drums ex workshop in Korea to Hamburg port, Germany.

Originally there was no time pressure for the transportation, however since January, the situation changed from one day to another. So AGL had to rework the concept and switch the mode of transport from Break Bulk vessel to Ro-Ro carrier, as the latter had a much less transit time. The only disadvantage was that another reloading had to take place in Bremerhaven, as that was the only port nearby that RoRo carriers called at. Nevertheless, within a few days, AGL changed the concept and collected the steam drums ex workshop together with the assistance of Project Logistics Alliance member Flogis International in Korea.

The cargo has the following dimensions & weights:

  • 6 x Steam Drums
  • 71,3 tons each
  • 1329 x 270 x 410 cms.

The cargo has meanwhile arrived in Bremerhaven as scheduled by AGL, and they have been reloaded onto the barge in Bremerhaven on the same day of arrival. The final destination for the drums will be a jobsite in Russia , after they have been taken over in Hamburg port.
