CEA Transports & Exports Catamaran Ferry

CEA Transports & Exports Catamaran Ferry
Danny Gill

CEA Project Logistics Thailand was recently contracted for the transport, storage and export of a Catamaran Ferry from Chonburi, Thailand to Freetown, Sierra Leone in West Africa.

CEA Teams began by lifting the ferry from the water via a straddle carrier at the Ocean Marina Yacht Club in Chonburi, Thailand. It was then loaded onto a specially fabricated frame which was attached to a standard lowbed transport trailer. Due to the height restrictions on Thailand’s roads, the top section of the ferry was removed to allow safe transport along the route. The top section was loaded and secured with ratchet straps onto a separate trailer. After seven days in storage, the ferry was transported to Laem Chabang Port and readied for loadout, which included the top section being reattached.

CEA says their turnkey service was what drew their client to them. Their client said, “After we had made contact with CEA, from that point on what had been a most unpleasant, expensive and frustrating experience became a routine operation. The Teams at CEA arranged prompt and hassle free transport from the Ocean Marina Yacht Club to Laem Chabang and the subsequent loading onto the vessel a week later. All this was achieved with the minimal involvement required from us, which was so refreshing from what we had previously experienced. A professionally handled project from start to finish by CEA”
