Broekman Project Logistics recently executed a project from St Nazaire in western France to Rotterdam to ship eight engines each weighing 325 tonnes on behalf of MAN
MAN requested the shipment of eight engines to a Northern European port, with the critical condition of inside storage.
Due to its facilities in the Port of Rotterdam and its experience in chartering of heavy lift vessels together with Biglift Shipping, Broekman was chosen to execute this project.
Broekman described the project as "an excellent example of the Control Tower principle." This is a value-added service for the customer's supply chain, whereby Broekman Logistics coordinates all the departments involved - Broekman Chartering, Broekman Breakbulk Terminals and Broekman Shipping - to safeguard the smooth flow of the cargo.
