Express Global Logistics Ships Manifold from India to Oman

Express Global Logistics representing India in the Project Logistics Alliance, recently completed the movement of Manifold Pipes from Mundra Gujarat to Majis Industrial Estate Sohar through a Break Bulk Operation on a container vessel.

The load measured:

  • Length 19.60m
  • Width 6.50m
  • Height  3.80m

It was shipped from the West coast of India to the Sohar port facility in Oman and further delivery to the final site.

The scope of the project included berthing a container vessel on a bulk terminal as this was not a regular carrier. The EXG team had to secure permits and approvals to berth a container vessel on a bulk terminal. The team required coordination and approvals from different authorities.



An additional shore crane was also necessary for the lifting operations and had to be arranged at short notice. Keeping in mind the weight and dimensions of the package, it was well thought out and executed with the time constraint faced.



EXG closely coordinated with the shipping line, terminal, and port officials to load the cargo as the vessel berthed there. This required precision, safety, and stability parameters in place.

EXG made it cost-effective for the client by using break bulk on container vessels instead of conventional break bulk. EXG was responsible for the door delivery of the cargo at the destination port, which included receiving the package under hook alongside the vessel, custom clearance of the package, and then transporting it on a 12 axle line modular trailer to the final delivery site. The final delivery was challenging as obstacle removal en route was required, including dismantling obstacles at the final site, which was arranged and coordinated successfully with the EXG partner in Oman.



EXG’s ability to overcome unexpected challenges with a solution and problem-solving approach made for a timely delivery of the cargo and happy clients.
