Project Description: DHL Industrial Projects team had the responsibility of arranging the transportation of 4 coke drums from Kobe, Japan to Houston, USA.


Industrial Projects Scope:

  • From Kobe, Japan to Houston, USA.
  • Moving a cargo of freight tons 13.606
  • Ocean Freight

The DHL Industrial projects team had the responsibility of arranging the transportation of four coke drums from Kobe, Japan to Houston, USA. The shipping consisted of loading four FAS barges measuring 35 x 10 x 9 meters in Kobe onto a SAL heavy lift vessel for its transportation to USA.

Besides the challenge of moving a cargo of freight tons 13.606, the vessel achieved an overall 28 days of transit. This was possible thanks to the type of vessel chartered by DHL Industrial Projects which is capable to speed of 20+ knots allowing arrival 3-4 earlier than other projected carriers.

In addition, once the goods arrived to Houston, there was a risky distance of 30 cm between the cargo clearance and the crane posts. However, the operation went smoothly and safe thanks to the precision and meticulous job of the engineering and HSE team.
