Large-scale Operation for Industrial Projects France Teams

March 30th, 2018

As part of a major project to relocate one of France's leading electricity production and supply companies, Bolloré Logistics France's Industrial Projects teams successfully completed the transfer of several heavy parcels.

Five parcels of more than 300 tons were shipped by barge from Le Havre, Haute Normandie to the site located near Creil, Oise.

Aside from the exceptional dimensions of this equipment, the delivery times imposed by the customer represented a major challenge. The expertise of the Bolloré Logistics Industrial Projects teams and the coordination of the best selected partners allowed the special charter of three barges within a very limited time.

The harbor crane of Le Havre port with a capacity of 650 tons was mobilized for the lifting of the heavy parcels from the customer's self-propelled trailer and loading on board the three barges. The unloading was carried out directly on the customer's site with the help of their 500-ton gantry.

Through close communication and coordination between all stakeholders, from upstream operations to cargo monitoring and administrative control, this transport has been achieved with the greatest success.
