Cargo: HD beams for the construction of Lakhta Center
Cargo weight: 5,500 tons
Special features of the project:
The total weight of the cargo was 5.5 thousand tons. In accordance with the beam production phases at the plant, 7 batches of cargo were formed and sent. The beams were produced specifically for this project, so it took time to collect the required amount of cargo for the ship's capacity. AsstrA employees carefully monitored each stage of transportation, starting from collecting the cargo at the berth in the Port of Antwerp, sea transportation to the Port of St. Petersburg, unloading, customs clearance, and loading on vehicles for delivery to the final recipient.
The delivery terms were strictly stipulated in the contract. Therefore, a key task was to unload the beams immediately after the vessel’s arrival in port so as send them on to the final recipient as quickly as possible. Thanks to the coordinated work of our specialists from different offices and synergies with our partners and contractors, the project was completed on time.
