    120 TONS: One vessel, reduced carbon footprint, one bill of lading

    Customer Challenge:

    Our client, a large supplier of technology for the food industry, won a contract to supply a complete processing plant to a potash producer in the Middle East. As part of the processing plant, a rotary drum exceeding 120 tons and 5 meters in diameter was being manufactured in Central Europe and needed to be transported to the final destination along with another 369 pieces of various sizes, and weights including in-gauge and out-of-gauge cargo. Our customer challenged us to find a solution that allowed all cargo, including the package at 120 tons to be loaded on the same vessel with all in-gauge pieces loaded into containers under one bill of lading. The consignment had to be shipped directly to the port of discharge due to the letter of credit requirements using the most cost effective solution..

    Logistics challenge enables client to build the world's heaviest and tallest wind and power infrastructure

    case study spot windCustomer Challenge:

    Our client, a global manufacturer of specialized wind energy installations, took part in a competition to supply some of the highest energy-generating wind power turbines in the world. This contest involved establishing the world’s largest land based windmill at the Hunterston test site in West Scotland, one of the windiest places in Europe. However, the port at Hunterston did not have port facilities to receive windmill parts of this size, so a custom quay had to be built. The customer engaged OIA to help navigate the multiple challenges related to the planning and execution of what essentially was a world first: the transportation of the largest windmill blade parts ever made.

    “Rest assured” when OIA Expedite handles your critical and time-definite shipments.

    Managing supply chain variability and complexity as fast and efficiently as possible often demands a premium-level, day-definite service. It requires a team of logisticians that can orchestrate a response plan, mobilize transportation resources, then execute at the drop of a dime. Enter OIA Expedite.

    OIA’s “control tower” approach utilizes a dedicated team that oversees your expedited shipments, synchronizing the right service providers to get the job done on-time. Partnering with airlines, cartage and linehaul providers, and motor freight carriers spanning North America and beyond, OIA Expedite analyzes least cost/best routings, and develops the right time-definite solution.

    Part of the challenge is understanding shipper and consignee need and deploying an appropriate mode combination with speed, security, and economy in mind – whether that means using day-definite truckload or less-than-truckload to reduce costs by optimizing market capacity or putting an urgent shipment on the next flight out.

    To remain competitive in today’s global economy, it’s imperative companies can supply out-of-gauge, hazardous, and project equipment worldwide. These heavy lift cargo shipments present unique international logistics challenges, and OIA is there to ensure every obstacle is successfully executed. Some of the many challenges faced on these project shipments include:

    • Securing transport clearances from country and regulatory bodies on time.
    • Obtaining lifting and securing certified equipment to ensure the safety of the personnel involved and the equipment itself.
    • Sourcing qualified and trained personal at remote locations.
    • Ensuring lifting and securing arrangements are being planned and agreed upon in advance to facilitate the works ahead of the operations.
    • Environmental changes and unforeseen circumstances requiring plan adjustments during execution.
    • Co-ordination and sequencing of multiple contractors throughout the operation.
