Total Movements, member to the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC) in India successfully moved critical mining equipment from foreign ports to the final site in India.
A company spokesperson explained: “An end-to-end movement that demonstrates how Total Movements project team moved this critical mining equipment through different legs/modes to meet customer expectations and timelines.
1. A 55 ton Mobile Crusher Unit was transported, loaded and shipped from the foreign load port in a RORO vessel with all the required safety precautions related to its lashing/bedding.
2. A 34 ton Mobile Screening Unit was planned to be loaded and shipped on a RORO vessel from a different load port. However, due to lack of space and suspension of sailings the cargo had to be moved by other modes. Our team worked closely with the carrier and affiliated agent to load this odd-sized cargo in the breakbulk mode using shore cranes.
Both these units were duly received at the Indian port by Total Movements for further transport to the final site.
