Transport of mining machinery from Germany to Kazakhstan


To ship 2 factory new, CKD Komatsu PC3000 excavators from Germany to Kazakhstan.


Ex Works Düsseldorf, Germany



Job Specifications

Freightplus was engaged to transport 2 factory new, 270-tonne CKD Komatsu PC3000 mining excavators, from Germany to Kazakhstan. The transport of mining machinery was handled by our Europe HQ in Bremen and routed within our network from the factory in Dusseldorf to the mine site in the Kostanaj region of Kazakhstan. The scope of our responsibility was to expedite the most cost-effective transport, with shortest transit time and least stop-overs.

Our crew in Bremen completed the door to door movement of both excavators, from pick up at Dusseldorf to delivery at Kostanaj, in less than 30 days, via the route with the least possible number of handling stops. The biggest individual piece, weighing 32 tonnes and measuring 453cm in width, was most challenging to maneuver but, thanks to our extensive experience from previous shipments in this direction, everything went very smoothly.
