Logistics Manager

France-based subsidiary of the Bolloré Group, Bolloré Logistics Japan recently carried out the transportation of materials and equipment from Mitsubishi Corporation for a large-scale fertilizer plant being built in Navoiy, Uzbekistan.

The project was originally awarded to Bolloré Japan in 2017 and by the end of September 2018 had successfully transported 24 heavy-lift units using hydraulic trailers, 17 of the units were well in excess 100 MT each.

The heaviest cargo was an Ammonia Converter that weighed a massive 422 tons while the largest cargo based on size was a Package Boiler that was LWH (mm)  12,700 x 8,700 x 10,720. Both cargoes were the heaviest and tallest to be ever handled in the landlocked country of Uzbekistan, surpassing previous records by quite some margin.

The teams from Bolloré procured all the necessary vehicles in a timely manner including the Volga-Don class sea river vessel and conventional hydraulic trailers along with all the required road permits in order to meet the construction schedule’s deadline.

The convoy of trailers traversed the 1700km journey from the Caspian Sea port to the job site, previous to setting off Bolloré Japan had carried out extensive route surveys to ascertain the safest route for transportation. It was soon apparent that the current infrastructure was limited and could not withstand the transportation of cargoes of this type.

Bolloré logistics renovated and reinforced 24 bridges and built a completely new bridge from scratch along with constructing 15 bypass roads, widening of roads, relocating electric poles and expanding five corners.

Working closely with the Mitsubishi Corporation, Bolloré Logistics delivered the project on time and were able to meet the cargo readiness in accordance with heavy lift transportation schedule at the site.
