Globalia Tianjin moves a project cargo with a volume of up to 160 CBM per piece from Shanghai to the Middle East

The cargo primarily consisted of several over-sized and heavy-lift rotary kilns and supporting equipment

Earlier this year, AMA Freight moved a project cargo of several over-sized and heavy-lift rotary kilns and supporting equipment from the port of Shanghai to the Middle East.

Ama_Freight_TianjinThe loading and unloading of the cargo demanded special monitoring mainly because of its enormous size.

Every single piece of this bulk cargo had a volume of up to 160 CBM, with dimensions of 6, 5×6, 5×4 m and weighed over 27 tons each. The full volume was split into 7 shipments amounting to a total of 400,000 tons and 14,000 CBM.

The bulk cargo specialists of AMA Freight planned and organized the entire transportation in advance so as to ensure smooth handling of the bulk cargo. The loading and transportation of the cargo to the vessels were monitored in person by AMA’s staff to guarantee proper control throughout the whole process.

“Our years of experience along with our professional expertise are the two factors which allowed us to successfully handle this bulk shipment. I’d request my fellow members to get in touch with us for any break bulk shipment requirement they might have,” says Julian Wolff, the General Manager Sales and Marketing of AMA Freight Co. Ltd.

Congratulations to Globalia Tianjin for a job well done!

Taking a look at the world of dangerous goods storage

Our GLOBALIA member in Sydney has been stocking up dangerous goods in its storage site since 2014

Since their inception in 2002, GLOBALIA Sydney – Paul’s Customs & Forwarding Solutions has grown and evolved to become one of Australia’s leading boutique logistics providers, specialising in total fulfilment solutions.

Based in Botany, New South Wales, and within 1km of Australia’s largest sea and air ports, PCFS operates a 5000sqm bonded warehouse facility, along with an extensive fleet of company-owned vehicles.

PCFS is D.G-licensed to store Class 2, 3, 5, 6 & 8 as packaged products.

By deploying leading technology and facilities, PCFS is able to handle dangerous goods and material for the following classes:

“This is a value-added service we offer our customers who don’t operate their own warehouse facilities, and who choose to use our 3PL D.G handling services as a distribution arm of their own operations” says Paul Petrovski, Managing Director.

However, this is not an easy task that just any agent can handle, it requires professionalism and especially attentive service. “We need to follow strict guidelines for labelling and documentation in accordance with Australian and international standards. Regulatory audits are conducted on a quarterly basis to ensure compliance across all of our designated categories”, Paul Petrovski adds.

PCFS hold stock on a daily basis for their customers, one such stock being pool chlorine. Held as overflow for their client’s warehouse, the chlorine is class 5.1 and packaged in 10kg pails, at approximately 78 – 80 pails per pallet. An especially large volume of the product is stored coming into spring/summer, as you might expect.
