September 11, 2019: Bollore Logistics Central China recently undertook a project task from a major Chinese Oil & Gas company to export oil & gas upstream equipment from Lianyungang, China to Alexandria, Egypt.

The operation involved the transportation of 53 pieces of oil & gas upstream equipment with a total volume of 1,560 cubic metres, weighing 240 tonnes. Bollore Logistics Central China sales team and projects team gathered to form a dedicated crew, which collaborated closely throughout this project - from site survey, solution design, to final execution.

It is the first time that Bollore Logistics has chosen the Lianyungang Deepwater Port, which is 500 kilometres away from Shanghai in Jiangsu province as the export point for such a project. By choosing Lianyungang over Shanghai port, Bollore Logistics could provide the customer with a solution that is equally competitive yet economical due to differences in freight and port charges.

"We are proud that our Central China team was able to design and execute a one-of-a-kind solution to provide the customer with services that are tailor-made to its needs. Our strong know-how in industrial projects and extensive footprint in the Africa continent makes Bollore Logistics a reliable partner for our international and Chinese customers on their belt and road projects," said Basile Ricard, Central China managing director of Bollore Logistics.

Besides the routing optimisation, Bollore Logistics Central China crew further helped the customer improve the packaging of the cargo to ensure goods integrity during the heavy lifting. The effective coordination with the involved shipping company and Egypt team at the destination is another key factor that contributed to the smooth delivery of the equipment.

Within the span of one month from July to August, the transport of the oil & gas cargo completed successfully on time as planned - while complying with the strict Bollore Logistics quality, health, safety, and environment management (QHSE) policies.
