Shipping of the Dredger

First Global Logistics and Europe Cargo, both members of Project Cargo Network, have recently collaborated on the project cargo shipment of a dredger and its equipment from Alexandria to Antwerp.

The dredger had finished its work at Sokhna Port and all the parts and equipment had to be shipped back to its final destination.

The project was divided into 2 jobs performed simultaneously in different ports of loading which was not an easy task.
