Höegh Autoliners’ Superlow rolltrailer loads break-bulk from India for sugar plant project in Saudi Arabia


Höegh Autoliners’ reliable, direct service and new equipment was the perfect mix to transport a turbine from India, for a sugar plant project in Saudi Arabia.


The freight forwarder chose Höegh Autoliners for the ocean transportation because of the direct, reliable connection from Mumbai to Jeddah offered in the India to Europe service.


Furthermore, due to the sensitive nature of the break-bulk cargo, Höegh Autoliners’ RoRo option meant minimal lifting, eliminating the risk of damage during the transportation process.


Höegh Autoliners’ vessels are built to handle a variety of break-bulk cargo; however, most vessels in the India to Europe service have a door opening of 5.1 m. This posed a challenge as the 54 MT turbine measured 4.51 m alone. The solution was to use the new Superlow rolltrailer which has a height of 0.47 m and capacity of 75 MT.


Mr Atuldutt Sharma, Breakbulk Sales Manager India, says, "With the Superlow rolltrailer allowing us to load higher break-bulk cargo than before, we can increase the service offering to our customers in the country."


With the supervision of Höegh Autoliners’ Port Captain, the delicate break-bulk unit was safely loaded on board Höegh St Petersburg and stowed under deck, where it would not be exposed to seawater or weather.


Höegh Autoliners is constantly developing equipment to cater to higher, heavier and longer cargo. Last year, the Extended rolltrailer and Double-wide rolltrailer were developed to transport longer and wider cargo. Now the Superlow rolltrailers are here to cater to higher break-bulk and project cargo, emphasised a release.


"This is the first shipment out of India using the new Superlow rolltrailers. With the shipment, we are able to showcase to our customers our dedicated focus on break-bulk cargo through constant innovations in equipment design," Mr Sharma added.
