An Out of Gauge (OOG) Industrial boiler for thermotechnology

Challenge

Lack of planning, precision, and visibility on the execution from previous logistics providers have resulted in mistrust in handling special projects. We needed to design and execute a flawless plan.

Origin and destination

Germany to Veracruz and to Guadalajara (both in Mexico), door to door.

Total volume

43-ton and 4.40 meters high

Operation results and highlights

This project success is the result of superb collaboration among our xpd global teams in Germany and Mexico.

Rigorous route surveys and feasibility examinations ensured the secure transport from the factory to the port in Germany, and subsequently from the port to the ultimate destination in Mexico.

In Germany, our team calculated how wide and resistant some bridges – and regular roads asphalt resistance, too – were and had the support of local authorities to move traffic lights.

And, above all, maintaining visibility across all operational milestones was crucial to provide peace of mind to our customer.

 

Our Project cargo safely placed over a specialized truck inside a wooden box branded with xpd global logo driving by streets in Germany followed by local authorities car that helped us to move traffic lights.

Operation at destination

Our clients
  1. The thermotechnology division of a leading global supplier of technology and services stated in 1886 in Stuttgart, Germany, with current operations divided into four business sectors: Mobility, Industrial Technology, Consumer Goods, and Energy and Building Technology.
  2. A 100% Mexican pharmaceutical company, with almost 80 years of history developing products and comprehensive services for the public and private health segments in Mexico, the United States, Latin America and the Caribbean.
The challenge

Transporting oversized cargo is a great challenge not only due to the difficulty in finding adequate space in international transport modes, but also for all the planning and preliminary preparations to ensure the success of the project.

Our clients needed accurate advisory and planning on:

  • The best roads to move the cargo, ensuring fast and safe transport complying with legal requirements.
  • Warehousing between locations.
  • Equipment in each site (finding the right -and available- cranes, for instance).

All of the above with full cargo visibility and personalized attention – one of our main market differentiations.

The solution

Expertise in project cargo isn’t a commodity you can buy in a shop.

We, from xpd global, offer as a market differentiator the ability of designed tailored plans – and the ones we build for Project Cargo are even more specific for its magnitude.

Our experienced teams understand the limits and possibilities inherent in plans of this nature. We have established connections with terminals, warehouses, shipping lines and all the necessary parties to provide the right equipment for each project to succeed and we can deliver it safely and on time.

Our differentiation

Above all technical details, our main differentiation here was related to trust, knowledge, and communications.

Our teams in Mexico and Germany knew each other in person, knew each other capabilities and were able to talk fluently to design -and execute- the whole plan, hand in hand with the customers, who had 360° visibility all the way, and the same service level in both countries.

Our logistic developers build personalized processes and standard operational procedures (SOPs) and our operational teams offered support in each step, and no detail was underestimated.
