CQR Bremen ‘dump’ a truck in Greece

It was a busy new year for CQR Bremen, Joh. C. Henschen (GmbH&Co.KG), as they were charged with shipping a CAT 775E from Hamburg to Piraeus, Greece

There were a couple of challenges for the team with this shipment. In order for the CAT 775E to board the Ro Ro vessel, the height of the vehicle had to be reduced by 30cm which meant the team had to discharge the nitrogen from the shock-absorbers. In addition, all documentation was prepared with special attention as payment was under letter of credit, no room for errors.

Joh. C. Henschen (GmbH&Co.KG), founded in 1849 is specialized in oversized and overweight cargo and all cargo which need special attention during, before or after shipping. Its experienced team ensured a smooth delivery of the machine.

CQR Bremen: 163 years in the industry!

Joh C. Henschen GMBH was founded in 1849 by the Henschen Family and over the past century and half CQR Bremen has firmly established itself as one of Germany’s preferred forwarders for its specialist OOG skills.

CQR Bremen demonstrated these most recently when it handled the shipping of a Form Press from Bremerhaven in Germany to Batangas in the Philippines. The Form Press was disassembled into 2 big boxes and the smaller parts were loaded into 4 dry containers. The boxes were shipped on mafis by Ro/Ro (K-Line) via Singapore and the containers where shipped with OOCL.

The team arranged the whole process as pre-carriage including the special transport permits (transport over two nights), unloading/reloading in the port of Bremerhaven and inspection during transportation.

Although generations of Henschens have come and gone over the past 163 years, the vast knowledge, skills and expertise they possessed have not; they have been passed down and are ever present in the current generation.
