Across the Ocean Shipping successfully deliver mining vibrating screens from Tianjin to Outback Western Australia!

4 min read

Across the Ocean Shipping were recently entrusted with a complex urgent shipment. The challenge was to organise the Ex-works shipment of two mining Vibrating Screens from the factory in Tianjin/Xingang to a remote outback Mine in Paraburdoo, Western Australia. Timeframe was a tight 5 weeks deadline. Failure to meet the deadline would result in the mine going offline, resulting in thousands of dollars in lost revenue per day!

Our Projects Team had the job of determining the best options to get these two over width and over height screens delivered within the client’s urgent time frame. Weighing over 16 tonnes each, this shipment required speedy and accurate ‘planning and communication’. Breaking the shipment process down into stages, they arranged the shipping from Tianjin Xingang Port via Singapore (with a short turnaround of 2 days) to get the consignment to then be shipped direct to Fremantle Port on the West Coast of Australia. This routing kept the client’s timeframe achievable.







Working in unison with our Operations Team, the Projects Team determined the most expedient delivery available to the mine.

Utilising trusted local transport partners, our Operations team worked seamlessly with this stage of the process. As these were Over Width and Over Height machines loaded on Flat Rack containers, restrictions and conditions were enforced by local authorities. This meant permits needed to be obtained to move the screens on Western Australia’s roads. One of the restrictions demanded daytime only transport whilst taking into consideration the Fremantle curfew of not transporting during local traffic “rush-hour”. Across the Ocean Shipping managed and co-ordinated the 1500km trip via the Australian West Coastline before turning inland to the new home of these magnificent machines.

Across the Ocean Shipping’s Managing Director, Mr David Aherne, proudly congratulated both his Projects Team and Operations Team on another successful shipment. “Having met our Client’s urgent timeframe, our team have once again shown their professionalism and abilities to coordinate and communicate throughout a challenging task and achieve a fantastic result!” After speaking with our client, Mr Aherne shared their praise “We knew we had set Across the Ocean a tough task, but we had every confidence they would as usual get our delivery to us intact and on time.”

Despite the successful result, our team have already reviewed the project and have been able to identify even more efficient methods to streamline this type of Project.

About All-in-One Logistics Network (AiO):

The AiO concept is all about leveraging strengths as a group.

Every logistics company in the world has its own strong points which depend upon the professional capabilities of their people, the needs of their customers and the aims and goals of the company. That has meant that some companies might handle only one type of cargo whereas other companies are experienced in more than one type of cargo. Until now this has meant that most independent freight forwarders need to join a few networks to cover each of their areas of expertise. We have changed all that.

When your company joins AiO you have the opportunity to enroll in various specialties including commercial cargo, project cargo, international removals, perishables and exhibition freight. From these specialties we form smaller groups specifically concentrated around that exact expertise. As such you will find that you have qualified companies for all your cargo all over the world, in one network. And they are all covered under the same financial protection. When you meet these companies at our annual general meeting you will only meet companies who are working in the type cargo that is of interest to your company so you can focus like a laser beam on the markets that will make your company grow and become more profitable.

It is plain to see that AiO’s revolutionary approach creates efficiencies for independent international logistics companies that did not exist before. We mean to open an entire world of freight and logistics opportunities to your company in a way that will make your customers happy, in a way that will feed your bottom line and in a way that will keep sales growing in your pipeline.
