Wheeled loader ships from Port of Felixstowe

Project forwarder Tuscor Lloyds has transported a wheeled loader to Korsakov, Russia, for a client in the mining industry.

The wheeled loader will be used at a mining project in Korsakov on the island of Sakhalin Oblast off the far eastern coast of Russia — a difficult and potentially costly location to deliver project cargo, Tuscor Lloyds said in a statement.

The loader weighed 7 tons and measured 6.3 meters long, 2.4 meters wide and 3.1 meters high. The forwarder decided it was best shipped as out-of-gauge cargo, loaded on a 40-foot flat rack container.

Tuscor Lloyds picked up the cargo from the manufacturer and loaded the vehicle on the flat rack using heavy duty ratchet straps and wooden chocks before transporting the cargo by road to the Port of Felixstowe.

Tuscor Lloyds had the shipment loaded onto a container vessel to ensure its schedule and reduce costs compared to conventional shipping methods.

The cargo arrived at the Port of Korsakov and was discharged using onsite cranes. It was delivered to the mining site within the set timeframe and on budget.
