Heavy and oversized crane parts from China to Siberia by road and rail in icy conditions

V. Alexander Germany, member to the Cargo Equipment Experts CEE network, have successfully managed a transport of 2.500 frt dismantled cranes from Xiamen in China to Bogouchany in Siberia/Russia.

The biggest pieces (crane girders) were 33 meters long, and the challenge was to bring same safely by road over a distance of 4.500 km to the Chinese-Russian-border, facing partly bad road-conditions, snow and ice and the fact, that girders needed to have a very special kind of securing on the trucks due to overlengths “in the air” of upto 10 meters.

The truck-caravan was finally consisting of 45 trucks.

After arrival in Manzhouli (Chinese border – rail –terminal) the cargo was reloaded onto 35 rail-wagons and on-forwarded safely to the final rail-destination in still bitter cold Siberian town of Bogouchany/Russia (another 2.500 km).

All transports, reloading-operations etc. were closely supervised by V. Alexander Germany Surveyors and and by the staff of V. Alexander CIS Ltd., who also was responsible for the survey-report done, upto final destination.
