Vantage Successfully Handled The Super Heavy-lift Cargoes For Long Son Petrochemical Complex Project To Welcome 2021.
The Long Son Petrochemical Complex project in Ba Ria - Vung Tau province is considered a key project in concretizing the policy of the strategic orientation of the development of the Vietnam Oil and Gas industry to 2025, with a vision to 2035, to step up the petrochemical refining industry, for domestic service and for export. With a total investment value of up to 5.4 billion USD, is expected to contribute 60 million USD / year to the national budget during 30 years of operation.
Being selected as the logistics contractor to provide logistics services for the super heavy-lift cargoes of the Long Son Petrochemical project is both an opportunity and a great challenge for Vantage's Project team.
In order to ensure the successful and timely implementation of this project, during a month, a team of transport engineers with more than 10 years of experience in the heavy-lift cargo transport profession, combined with the project managers with over 17 years of experience, have been working hard with more than 1,200 hours of preparation, along with more than 500 hours of enthusiastic work of each project staff.
1. International freight:
In addition, due to the limitation of the channel draft at port of discharge as well as the security of the specific inland waterways in this area, the transport vessel is not only having to meet the higher security demand than common commercial ships but also still need to calculate on how to safely carry the goods but still have to maintain a limited draft to enter the channel.
After 2 weeks of searching and negotiating efforts, the Vantage Project team has successfully arranged a vessel that fully satisfies the above factors. With the shortest mobilizing route (only 20 days) to the loading port to transport to Vietnam, Vantage has helped customers to save a significant amount of ballast mobilization, as well as shorten waiting time for ships, ensuring the project progress as planned.
With the advantage of being a customs agent, the customs procedures of these shipments have been professionally qualified by Vantage specialists, who understand the applicable law and are skilled in customs clearing before the date of arrival, helping the pick-up at the discharge port went smoothly, receiving high satisfaction from the local Customs Department as well as investors and customers.
Bearing in mind the importance of the safety and accuracy of the project, the Vantage Project team always sets safety at the highest level in all preparations and throughout the implementation period.

This requires very high coordination and minute-accurate to ensure the delivery schedule to release the vessel early but still meet safety criteria during transport and unloading at the job site.
Check and test the ground load on the route, measure the slope and calculate the pull/push/compression/tension for each package during transportation.
Understanding this important criterion, Vantage has organized a team of professional personnel including 7 groups of independent professional activities but closely interacting and working include:
2- Technical team (Engineer)
3- Logistics team (Operation)
4- Customs broker
5- Team operating equipment (Driver + Signal man)
6- Supervisor & Support Team
7- Project Manager
Therefore, for each package, though requires different precision and closely related to each other in order of delivery, as well as time and space are limited, still handled well by Vantage's project team beyond expectation.
10 axle hydraulic trailers were used to transport normal cargoes to the job-site in order to ensure the project planned schedule.
The successful handling of this shipment is not only improving the service quality of Vantage in terms of profession but also demonstrating the spirit of solidarity and good coordination among members of Vantage's Project team in particular, and the whole company in general. This shows that in addition to safety compliance and high expertise, the rigor and project management capabilities of Vantage are one of the crucial criteria for successful handling the shipment exceeded customer progress.
The completion of the first shipment in the new year 2021 brings us not only pride but also encourages us to dedicate and contribute more and more success to customers.
