Heavy Transport from KSA to Egypt by Egyptian Global Logistics

A French-Egyptian Consortium obtained an Egyptian Ministry of Transport contract for overhaul including the construction of a light rail track that will link Cairo with the 10th of Ramadan Railway. Last year, the government launched a tender to revamp the line as part of the ongoing EGP 56 billion plan to overhaul the national railways by purchasing new railcars, improving junctions, building new lines, and automating signaling systems.

On 1 August 2020 Egyptian Global Logistics (EGL), subsidiary of KADMAR GROUP received a Door-to-Door RFQ to mobilize 5,000m³  of locomotives and heavy equipment from the El-Dammam port, KSA, to Adabiya port,  Egypt, including:

  • Diesel Locomotives,
  • Tamping Machines,
  • Hopper Wagon,
  • Wagon Flat & Regulator machines

EGL immediately opened a hotline (operation connections) to arrange all necessary operations in the KSA and represent us in front of all utilities, authorities, Saudi Customs and the port terminal.

Scope of Work in the KSA:

  • Handling origin service at the site in Dammam.
  • Route and Site Survey to El-Dammam port.
  • Cranes with the loading capacity of up to 600 tons supply for the site.
  • In-Land Transportation from 3 different sites to the loading port Dammam.
  • Handling in the port, Customs Clearance and Stevedoring.

Chartering scope:

  • Hire of a geared vessel.

Scope of Work in Egypt:

  • Vessel berthing arrangement by coordination with Kadmar shipping Co.(ship agent).
  • Route and Site Survey up to Abu-Rawash workshop.
  • Handling in the port, Customs Clearance and Stevedoring.
  • Arranging all permits needed to get Road Permits from utilities, Especially Road and Bridges Authority, as EGL succeeds in getting Consultant report due to cross El-Moneib River Nile bridge with Total Weight 180 tons.
  • In-Land Transportations from Adabiya port to Abu-Rawash workshop.

In parallel and before release cargo from Adabiya port the JV had requested us to mobilize more than 25 units (Total 3,750 cbm) locomotives equipment from Abu- Rawash workshop to 3 different workshops, Minia El-Kamah, Badr LRT, and Al Qassaseen, to guarantee enough space to offload Adabiya cargo on rails after getting permits from ENR (Egyptian National Railways) to stop train traffic in Abu-Rawash Workshop.

EGL (Kadmar Group) achieved this success through careful planning and strong connections in the KSA, especially with our KSA partner without sacrificing safety aspects to meet clients’ demands.
