Equipment for oil refineries is frequently transported to Western Kazakhstan and generally, all these cargoes are over-dimensional and out of gauge.Recently, Globalink’ s experienced Project Department was tasked with handling and working out the most efficient route for the transportation of two transformers from Hefey, China to Atyrau, Kazakhstan. Certainly not the heaviest piece ever handled but with their deadline fast approaching, their customer needed the shortest possible transit time for delivery to final destination.
Always up for a challenge, their Project Team began planning right away. Using in-house resources, Globalink’s China Office supervised the loading and lashing at origin and dispatched the cargo, where upon arrival at the Kazakhstan border, their Dostyk Office (situated strategically on the border) controlled the offloading and subsequent re-loading onto the waiting rail wagons for the final leg of the journey. Meticulous and thorough planning resulted in yet another successful delivery and in fact they beat their own delivery time. Comprehensive planning, flawless execution and constant monitoring ensured the job was completed as promised.
Conqueror Almaty’s project division is renowned for its handling capabilities and almost legendary when it comes to taking on large, complex, intricate projects. They recently lived up to their reputation when they were asked to handle and deliver crushers from Spain to Kazakhstan for a mining project.
The scope of work handled by the team was indeed comprehensive; including crating, sea freight, road freight and customs clearance at destination. Given the cargo weight, mobile cranes had to be positioned for loading onto the vessel chartered for the trip from Bilbao to St. Petersburg.
At St. Petersburg, personnel from their project office supervised reloading onto sea-river barges for the journey down the Volga Don River to the Caspian Sea Port of Astrakhan. Upon docking, the Crushers were offloaded and lashed onto low bed trailers, courtesy of Globalink’s road freight division, and departed at once for the job site. Clearance at destination was an exercise in efficiency and brought to close a well-planned and brilliantly executed job.
The Conqueror Almaty team recently handled a substantial turnkey project of 3 mills for a gold mine in the south-east of Kazakhstan
Originating in China, the total weight of each mill was 650 tons. Due to extraordinary dimensions, each mill had to be disassembled into multiple pieces weighing 50 tons each. Being an out of gauge shipment, the transportation as well as the lashing, loading and unloading processes required the deployment of specialized heavy-lift equipment.
CQR Kazakhstan’s in-house industrial projects packing team secured each component at origin and arranged specialized industrial crating for the fragile mill parts. Once the shipment was secured on our specialized trailers, a long and challenging journey awaited from Luoyang in China to the final remote destination in southern Kazakhstan via Khorgos on the Sino-Kazakh Border covering more than 3500 kilometers.
Thanks to their own terminal at the Khorgos border, Globalink’s in-house customs brokerage team swiftly completed the clearance and certification process. Due to well-coordinated team efforts by CQR Kazakhstan’s project specialists in China and Kazakhstan, the shipment crossed the border and was delivered at the project site just-in-time. At destination, the cargo was swiftly offloaded under the supervision of their project specialists so that their customer could begin installation operations right away.
