CH Robinson’s North America team and UAE based Fleet Line Shipping partnered up for a time-bound shipment consisting of 20 compressor skids.
Each skid measured 10.9 x 4.9 x 4.0 meters and weighed 77 metric tons. While C.H. Robinson was responsible for quoting the business, Fleet Line arranged the end to end logistics from UAE to the final GCC destination.
Shipments were picked up from the manufacturer and loaded onto a chartered break bulk vessel. Upon arrival at the port, arrangements were made to receive the skids on hydraulic trailers on a direct basis. Skids were removed from hydraulic trailers and placed on stands. Once the levy exempted customs formalities were completed, the skids were delivered to the site in batches as per schedule.
It took clear communication and full cooperation for C.H. Robinson and Fleet Line to successfully work together halfway around the world to get these large pieces of equipment delivered safe and sound, to the satisfaction of our client.
