Punto System, Project Cargo Network members from Italy, recently transported a huge dismantled crawled drilling rig door-to-door from Ottawa to Panama City, via Baltimore port, under temporary export/temporary import customs status.

The main unit of the rig weighed 54 tons (16 x 3 x 3.3 m) and it was shipped as one special transport and 3 trucks full of the machine’s accessories.

Punto System faced challenges during this shipment, including the coordination of the machine’s arrival at the port when the permits were expiring, and continued postponement of the ship’s arrival.
