ATOS Breakbulk Project Delivery in WA

2 min read

The latest ATOS big project shipment has been moved into Fremantle from Shanghai. The total consignment was 5 Crates of cutting machinery at nearly 70 Tonne and 420 cubic metres.


Given the size of the shipment the ATOS project team had to liaise many weeks in advance with the port, crane operators and transport to ensure smooth pick up of the crates. As they were collecting under hook of the vessel we had a very limited time frame with a lot of moving parts involved.


Their team organized three flatbed semi-trucks, including one with an extendable trailer, and secured Oversized Road Permits for WA. For unloading, they scheduled two 25-ton Franna cranes.


On the day or arrival into port, the pilot vehicle and trucks arrived for underhook loading, but two crates were tightly pressed together, preventing the vessel’s cranes from lifting them. A 14-ton forklift failed to separate the crates, and sourcing a second forklift with enough weight capacity proved difficult however their fantastic team at ATOS managed to pull a rabbit out of the hat.


After successfully separating the crates they loaded the crates onto the trailers. The trucks departed at noon and arrived at the client’s site, where the crates were unloaded by their Franna cranes.


Despite challenges, proactive planning by the ATOS team led to the successful delivery of five oversized crates! All in a day’s work here at Across the Ocean Shipping!
