LOVEMORE BROS Logistics Export Project
As a sequel to the dismantling, loading, transporting and placement into storage of the various components of a 750 ton Liebherr 996 Backhoe from Kathu to Durban, it fell upon the LOVEMORE BROS Lowbed Division to pick up the baton and complete the final delivery of all components to the shipside in Durban Port.
With the client focus firmly on minimizing the cost to themselves, it was up to our Managers, Supervisors and Operators to ensure efficient and timeous delivery of each component to the shipside for direct loading, thereby avoiding demurrage charges being levied by the Liner.
No easy challenge, considering the ship was made ready for loading over a weekend, which is an embargo period for Abnormal Load transport. It took clever logistical planning and astute use of our fleet resources to ensure all cargo delivered without incident on a JIT (just in time) basis.
Sadly, our client, lived up to our expectations, and despite numerous promises to cover costs and loud exclamations of appreciation, managed to sneak off without fulfilling his obligation. Give our love to the kangaroos, Charles.
