As project cargo specialists, Project Professionals Group, are often called upon to complete unusual shipments for clients, none more so than the recent transportation of 26 new fire trucks for use in Vietnam.

PPG member for Vietnam, Vantage Logistics Corporation, was responsible for the successful transfer by barge of the 26 fire-fighting trucks from the Rickmers-Linie vessel’s anchorage in Hai Long Bay to Hai Phong Port 100 klm from Hanoi for distribution throughout Vietnam.

The consignment of 26 pieces, every one red and identical, will be used at different fire brigade stations across the country. Each truck was 7.6m long and eight tons in weight.

Vantage Logistics has expanded rapidly during the past two years and is one of 98 PPG members in 70 countries.

PPG’s General-Manager Kevin Stephens, based in Brisbane Australia, said 79 attendees have been confirmed for the PPG annual conference in Aarhus, Denmark from August 27-31.

The conference is supported by DSV Air & Sea A/S Project Division, Rickmers-Linie GmbH, Beluga Chartering GmbH, Volga-Dnepr (UK), Limited, Professional Logistics Group, Inc, Schiftahrtskontor Altes Land GmbH (SOL) and Siemens.
