Between their places of manufacture and end use, production line elements must often travel thousands of kilometers. In several such cases, the AsstrA-Associated Traffic AG corporate group team organized production line shipments from Asia to Poland. Janusz Bulinski, Head of the AsstrA Sea Freight Department in Gdansk, shares the details of these successful projects.
High-pressure line from Korea to Poland
This project involved the delivery of 10 oversized structural elements of a high-pressure line.
“This project coincided with the New Year holiday season, which naturally led to some additional challenges. Elements with a width of 4.5 m were transported in one shipment. In Incheon, Korea, the line was loaded onto 40-foot Flatrack platforms and into standard containers. The cargo was shipped from Korea by sea to Gdansk. It was then delivered to Wroclaw in container ships and low-load semi-trailers. The client took advantage of the comprehensive services we provide, including sea transportation, cargo handling operations, and last-mile delivery. The entire project lasted 45 days,” says Janusz Bulinski.
Production line from China to Poland
This was another shipment of oversized cargo executed by the AsstrA team.
“The cargo weighed 1,000 tons in total and consisted of 500 production line elements. These elements were delivered by sea from Shanghai to Poland in 60 containers of various types, including 20'DVs, 40'DVs, 40'HCs, Open Top 40s, and Flatrack 40s. The combined delivery scheme from the port of Gdansk to the Polish city of Jaslo included shipping by rail, standard tents, low-load semi-trailers, and container carriers,” continues Janusz Bulinski.
Logistics from China during the COVID-19 pandemic
The AsstrA corporate group continues to provide integrated logistics solutions for cargo from China during the COVID-19 health crisis.
“Even during the global crisis around COVID-19, our team continues to organize regular shipments. Current projects include deliveries of electronics from China to Poland, Italy, the UK, and Hungary. Anti-pandemic restrictions introduced by governments are obviously affecting our work here, both directly and indirectly.
We are closely monitoring the situation to ensure smooth operations for our customers. Safe transportation is a top priority for us. We take into account all relevant World Health Organization recommendations and official regulations when providing our comprehensive range of logistics services,” concludes Janusz Bulinski.
