Vantage Successfully Transported Two OOG Shipments For Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Railway Bridge Construction Project


Vantage Project continues to demonstrate its expertise and experience in the field of project cargo transportation, especially OOG cargo when successfully transporting two oversized shipments for the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib railway bridge construction project in Bangladesh.

The dual-gauge, double-track Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Railway Bridge over the Jamuna River with 4.8km-long will improve rail capacity between the capital and the country’s northwestern regions, is expected to be the largest dedicated rail bridge in the country. The $1.98bn project is slated for completion by 2025.

Detail of the two shipments:

- Commodity: Steel pipe sheet pile + accessories
- Service providing: loading on board and sea transportation by Break Bulk (fully loaded) to destination port in Bangladesh.

A. Shipment 1:

- Volume: 267 steel pipes and 13 packages of accessories, in which the longest pipe is up to 26.7m
- Total gross weight: 23,000CMB, vessel capacity of 14,000dwt (fully loaded)
- Project time: 03/10/2021

B. Shipment 2:

- Volume: 323 steel pipes and 14 packages of accessories, of which the longest pipe is up to 26.7m
- Total gross weight: 27,000CMB, vessel capacity of 17,800dwt (fully loaded)
- Shipment time: October 27, 2021

In the role of ship owner, Vantage Logistics has completed the cargo handling process, detailed loading diagram for both shipments in a very short time to meet the project timeline as required by the customer. At the same time, because of the various sizes and shapes of steel pipes (from 12.5m to 26.7m; types A1, A2, B, C, D1, D2), Vantage’s team of specialized engineers had to plan the loading diagrams very meticulously and with high accuracy for the related units to coordinate accordingly, which also increased the difficulty in the project implementation process.

Another difficulty that cannot be ignored is that both shipments were handled during the complicated situation of the Covid epidemic, so that the project management team from Vantage had to direct remotely, this requires close coordination with the port supervisor to ensure the safe and smooth completion of loading on board.

Particularly for the second shipment, because the goods are located in two different yards (1 in the yard at SITC port, the other in 3km from the port), so Vantage Logistics's team of supervisors and engineers must coordinate intelligently, closely connected to each other to ensure the order of picking up goods at the right yard and loading on the ship as planned.

Being able to mobilize 2 Break Bulk ships in a short period of time to promptly serve customers' needs and ensure the goods be transported safely and on schedule of customers' projects is the result of the efforts of the entire staff of Vantage Project, as well as proving the capacity of Vantage Logistics in the field of project cargo transportation, especially during the period that be huge impacted by the Covid epidemic as present.
