Complex shipment captured on film

CQR Itajai has undertaken an audacious operation during March and May of 2016, the team at Quantum Logistics have successfully coordinated the entire logistics process of a project cargo, all the way from Taiwan to Rio do Sul in Brazil. This is particularly challenging due to the additional 180km of land transportation from the port of discharge Itajai.

The core layout of the assignment consisted of partial vessel chartering, together with POL & POD handlings supervision, plus a sophisticated duty for the inland transport.

At final destination, the machinery (which was valued at millions of dollars) was passed to the consignee in perfect condition.

The Cargo details were as follows:

    • Total 3 cases, 169.5 ton and 362.71 m3,
    • Main piece weighing 156 ton and measuring 11.46m length / 4.69m width / 4.20m height

CQR Itajai is a winner at the 11th Transat Jacques Vabre

Back in November, we informed you that CQR Itajai had been nominated as the official logistics provider for the 11th Transat Jacques Vabre ocean race. On behalf of CQR Itajai, we would like to give you an update on how it went.

Hired by the organisers, Quantum successfully coordinated the entire logistics operation, including all the air and ocean shipments of the support materials for the event from France to Brazil, customs clearance, management of supplies and boats and inland transportation from port and airport to the ocean race village and back again.

At the end of the event the boats were returned to Lorient on board a break bulk ship in which the stowage happened by lashing and lifting the boats from seaside of the vessel directly on deck in a delicate counter board operation. To see how delicate, check out Quantum’s video!

In total, the team were responsible for 28 boats of all classes.

16 Class 40’s

4 Multi 50’s

6 IMOCA’S

2 MOD 70’s

Conqueror would like to congratulate the team on this achievement!
