Höegh Autoliners ensures good planning to transport break-bulk from India


Direct liner service between India and the US, together with experience in transporting challenging break-bulk cargo awarded Höegh Autoliners the shipment of a shore crane with lifting capacity of 400 MT and span length of 118 m.


Direct, reliable service


The customer needed the cargo transported from the port of Ennore to Freeport, and Höegh’s Middle East and India to Americas service was the perfect solution, ensuring a direct service with minimum transit time and savings in transportation cost.


Dependable equipment and operational experience


Due to its large dimensions, the crane was knocked down into 51 static pieces for transportation. Transporting highly sensitive break-bulk cargo such as this requires experienced personnel and flexible cargo handling equipment, emphasised a release.


Mr Atuldutt Sharma, Breakbulk Sales Manager in India, says, "To support the customer in preparing their sensitive cargo for shipment, Höegh’s cargo handling team was involved already in the pre-shipment phase. This involved studying the packing and dimensions of the break-bulk units and finding the most suitable equipment to ensure full cargo optimisation on board the vessel."


Höegh Autoliners’ fleet of rolltrailers consists of various types and sizes to handle sensitive break-bulk cargo.


Ensuring safe ocean transportation


The entire loading operation, including stuffing and lashing of each static unit on to the rolltrailers, was supervised by Höegh’s Port Captain. Once inside the vessel, the 12 rolltrailers were positioned by an experienced team and lashed in accordance with a carefully calculated plan, all to guarantee a safe sea voyage.


Mr Atuldutt Sharma adds: "The successful shipment came down to the good collaboration between the customer and cargo handling team. The customer was satisfied with the safe, cost-effective and customised solution that was provided to transport their break-bulk cargo safely to its final destination."
