Denholm Global Logistics (DGL); United Kingdom and BNSF Logistics (BNSF), USA, both members to the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC), cooperated for a significant transport arrangement of steel mill equipment.
BNSF shipped the units by Ro/Ro vessel (Hoegh Amsterdam) from Shanghai into Newcastle on 100t mafis. The cargo consisted of two Slag Pots @ 6250 x 4830 x 3510 mm – 53000 kg each, used in steel processing. BNSF were responsible for controlling the delivery through to Lackenby near Middlesbrough.
DGL were employed by BNSF to arrange customs clearance, mobile crane hire at the port (this particular terminal at South Shields, Newcastle does not have sufficient craneage to lift these units) and delivery to a steel mill in Lackenby (approx. 45 miles from the port).
