GLB Port Klang gets creative

Our GLB agent in Port Klang recently handled the ex-work shipment of a boiler from Port Klang to Semarang, but this shipment turned out to be more challenging than initially expected.

Famor Malaysia Sdn Bhd managed the loading, lashing and securing for this buyer consolidated ex-work shipment (3 shippers & 1 buyer). However, after packing the cargo, the boiler machine was 8ft 8inches in height, which resulted in over height. Their client did not want the additional cost of an open top 40′, so Famor Malaysia Sdn Bhd had to be creative and came up with the solution of cutting a portion of the top of the container to accommodate the cargo.
