Maersk Line moves heavy-lift cargo from India to China

Maersk Line has successfully moved the largest ever break-bulk cargo at 103 ft in length and weighing over 16 tonnes from Krishnapatnam to Tianjin, China. The break-bulk cargo consisting of windmill blade was moved on its weekly service, Chennai Express, using 13 flat racks. The delicate shipment of windmill blade, meant for wind farms, was a time bound cargo and had to be loaded on to an earliest available vessel.

Steve Felder, Managing Director, Maersk Line (India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and Maldives), said, “There was seamless co-ordination between our team, the customer and the terminal operator to overcome infrastructure challenges and help deliver this delicate and expensive cargo to China.”
