IPS (Integrated Project Services) GmbH, a global project logistics service provider with a focus on the mechanical and plant engineering sector, has recently successfully completed its largest single shipment to date.
Thanks to the comprehensive know-how in project forwarding, IPS was able to cover the entire supply chain. Thus, from the end of April to the end of May 2014, the company was able to transport a 515 ton converter to Point Lisas in Trinidad & Tobago without any problems.
Following the initial transport of the consignment by means of a special vehicle and inland waterway vessel, the converter was loaded straight onto a chartered heavy-duty cargo ship in Rotterdam. In addition to detailed planning and problem-free handling, IPS provided ongoing monitoring and information management for those involved in the project in order to ensure well-timed site planning. “With an individual weight of 515 tons, this project was the largest heavy cargo consignment to date for IPS. We were able to ensure an efficient realization process thanks to our integrated service approach,” explain Stefan Hütten, Managing Director of IPS, and Uwe Warnke, Project Manager.
The transported converter, the heart of an ammonia plant producing up to 2,000 tons a day, arrived at its destination in Trinidad on May 31st – within the planned time frame.
