Hellmann Project Cargo recently transported five airport fingers from Bilbao, Spain to Barranquilla, Colombia. The Project Cargo Team Spain was responsible for all logistics from the producing factory in Spain to the Colombian Port of Barranquilla.
The road transport of the five passenger boarding bridges, also called “fingers”, came with a number of challenges for the team, as each individual finger had oversized dimensions of 16.9 x 3.8 x 3.9 meters (L x W x H). We therefore had to carry out a detailed analysis of the possible land routes in advance in order to ensure road transport to the port of loading. There the airport fingers were loaded onto a specially chartered multipurpose vessel and then shipped to Barranqullia. The biggest challenge for us was to coordinate the five individual road transports in such a way that they arrived at the Spanish port in time before the vessel moored so as not to lose any time.
The vessel also had to meet specific conditions, as the canal to the port in Barranquilla has only limited draught. Finally, all cargo where loaded and delivered on time meeting the tight schedule requested by the job site.
