8 Oversized Reels from the UK to Curacao

IFS recently completed another major project comprising 8 oversized steel reels. This break bulk cargo was transported from Worksop, UK to Willemstad, Curacao. The reels varied in weight and height, with the largest measuring in at 234 x 265 x 267cms and weighing 25,000kgs.

The cargo was collected from Worksop and was delivered to the Port of Willemstad. Due to the scale of the cargo and awkward shape, 8 low loaders and flatrack containers were used to facilitate the shipment.

As anticipated, the project ran smoothly from start to finish with the exception of one minor setback. Some of the empty equipment was not in stock at London Gateway Port, so some had to be moved over from Southampton. However, this had no impact on the overall success of the project.
