C.H. Robinson recently chartered a vessel to ship 105 empty 20′ ISO tanks.

The full charter from Jebel Ali in the UAE to Lianyungang in China originally had a transit time of 25 days from port-to-port but this was lengthened due to congestion at Lianyungang Port. To mitigate these delays, the C.H. Robinson team quickly reached out to the Port Authority and found an alternate berth for the vessel to discharge on time.

To save even more time, the discharging was completed using shore cranes which expedited the process. The tanks were then marshalled at a storage area where they were loaded onto flatbed trailers with 2 units on each. C.H. Robinson utilised 53 trucks to perform the deliveries – a process which took around 6 days to complete.

In total, C.H. Robinson’s team of experts helped safely deliver 3,960cbm of cargo, which weighed over 853mtn, to the site Save within their client’s timeframe.
