Neptumar agency successfully completes challenging two-phased delivery of project cargo from China to St. Petersburg
A large shipment of project cargo including equipment weighing 3,600 measurement tonnes in late November was delivered to the Port of Antwerp. The cargo was transported from the Port of Shanghai on board the general cargo ship Chipolbrok Atlantic (entered service in 2016), Neptumar LLC told IAA PortNews.
As the project cargo was too large for further delivery from Antwerp to the Port of St. Petersburg it was broken down into individual loads and transported on board several feeder vessels: the MS Frisian Summer (operator Atlantic Ro-Ro Carriers), the MS Genca, the MS Misina and the MS Pulpca (Transfennica). The two-phased challenging oversized import cargo transport project was planned and executed by ship agency, transport and logistics specialist Neptumar LLC.
"The main part of the equipment were oversized loads for processing facility of the SK-200 sulfur plant project (the programme of long-term development of the industrial chemicals production), implemented in Russia’s Tula Region. Another part of the project cargo was transported for the construction of a new Haval automotive manufacturing plant located in the industrial Uzlovaya park, 180 km from Moscow," Neptumar LLC said adding that since the company in September 2016 became the Chipolbrok line ship agency this has been the largest project cargo shipment delivered to St. Petersburg.
"This transportation project was quite challenging for us as the cargo was to be delivered from China in the shortest possible time required by the final consignee... The delivery from Antwerp to St. Petersburg was to be carried out not only in a short time span, but also with the shortest transit storage period at the Zuidnatie Terminal used by Chipolbrok. Despite all the challenges, the seaborne delivery was successfully completed with the arrival of two final ship loads on November 29, 2017 at the terminals of PLP Terminal and First Stevedoring Company,” the ship agency said.

The company specializes in providing agency services for line shipping companies and for international seaborne / land transportation, including international and domestic transport, warehousing and customs clearance.
