The shipment which was meant for the mining industry was moved from Guinea to Mauritania via sea freight
Acconage Consignation Transit SA (ACT SA), Conqueror member in Nouakchott, Mauritania, moves an ocean freight shipment for the mining industry. They transported 168 units of trucks, trailers, military equipment, excavators, and other rolling materials from Boke Port, Guinea, to Nouakchott Port, Mauritania. They used an MV Orient Pluto vessel for transporting the cargo. The cargo was meant for the mining sector specifically for the offshore gas field rocks transportation for BP Tortue. The BP Tortue project is a cooperation project between the governments of Mauritania and Senegal.
They were responsible for the entire logistic chain from vessel arrival until the final delivery of 168 units. Although they have experience in handling similar projects, the massive volume and diverse nature of the shipment made it somewhat challenging. As stated by Mr. Khalil Chouaib from ACT, “The most difficult aspect of this shipment was that we had to ensure that the 168 units were delivered in intact condition. This also included the spare parts loaded inside some units.”
They did not use any special equipment for delivering this shipment. “Firstly, I would like to thank my teammates for seamlessly moving this complicated cargo. We also had to take the shipment from under the hook, and take care of lashing and warehousing. Additionally, we did the customs clearance and moved the cargo via trucks to the consignee’s site 60 Km from Nouakchott Port,” adds Mr. Chouaib.
Congratulations to Acconage Consignation Transit, and wishing them the best for the future!

Their office relocation was mainly because of their need to move as close as possible to the cargo terminal of Madrid Airport

This road freight shipment was moved from South Africa to Angola via reefer trucks
Afrigo Global Logistics, Conqueror member in Cape Town, South Africa, moved perishable cargo from Cape Town to Luanda, Angola, over the extended lockdown period. They made use of 15 meter reefer trucks able to load up to 30 pallets each. The weight of the cargo moved over this period exceeded 2.6 million Kg. It took an average of 15 days to complete one cycle per truck over a distance of 7700 km. As one of the leading independent freight forwarders in Cape Town, they have vast experience in perishable logistics.
These shipments were complicated, since they had to deal with movement restrictions due to closed borders. As stated by Karel-Jan Nothnagel, the Managing Member of Afrigo Global, “In Africa, delivery takes time and one has to plan for every delay. Additionally, your staff needs to have patience and understand the importance of timely delivery of the goods. The bad road condition, the volume and time-sensitive nature of the shipment and the long distance were indeed challenging. Nevertheless, our fleet traveled 745,000 Km and delivered the cargo right on time.”
Congratulations to Afrigo Global Logistics and all the best for their future projects!

They moved the massive breakbulk cargo via a Cosco Shipping vessel from Hamburg, Germany, to Qingdao, China
Kwise Logistics Co Ltd, Conqueror member in Qingdao, China, has successfully moved a breakbulk cargo from Hamburg to Qingdao. The shipment consisted of a 58 Mt propeller which had a dimension of 880 x 860 x 200 cm. As a veteran ocean freight service provider, they arranged for port to door movement of this shipment thereby providing end-to-end logistics solution.
They were responsible for several aspects of the project. This included vessel booking, and coordinating with the port authority to discharge the propeller. Additionally, they were also in charge of lashing/securing the cargo on the truck and delivering it to the consignee’s premises. The odd size of the cargo posed significant hurdles which were overcome successfully.
As stated by Richard OIuyang, the General Manager of Kwise Logistics, “Due to the massive size of the propeller, our team had to dismantle and raise the wires at the gate of Qingdao port. We immediately restored the dismantled gate and wires after the propeller passed by. Moreover, we also had to dismantle the telephone poles and raise the wires while delivering the shipment at the consignee’s premises. Our experienced team managed to pull off the job perfectly and send the shipment right on time.”
Congratulations to Conqueror Qingdao and all the best for their future projects!
