Helicopters, trucks, deep sea vessels. Gosselin Logistics gets the job done

Helicopter International Shipping Services needed to transport two helicopters to Jebel Ali and approached Gosselin Logistics to take on the task. The fuselages were picked up from a MAFI rolltrailer and transferred by truck to be re-stowed on a 40ft flat rack at the Gosselin facility. The helicopters were then transported to the Port of Antwerp and loaded onto a full container vessel.

Ronny Michiels, the customer project leader, explained that the team had already loaded the 40ft flat-racks onto the trailers the day before and stored them inside the secured warehouse to save time and costs during the loading process. The team started their day at 3:40 am to enable the drivers to pick up the loaded trailers from the secured facility.

 

Exceptional helicopter cargo

Around 5 am, the team arrived at the terminal, announced themselves to security, and prepared for discharge. Both trucks were guided next to the vessel in the vicinity of the gantry crane for unloading and direct transfer onto the container vessel. The lifting was executed at a slow pace to ensure the safety of the precious cargo. Wooden dunnage and rubber were placed underneath the 40ft flat-racks to avoid skidding, and both 40ft flat-racks were secured by chain lashings. A few hours later, the operation was concluded. Ronny confirmed that it was "another job well done" and attributed their success to proper planning, preparation, and a dedicated crew.

De opwaardering van het Albertkanaal is bijna voltooid. De ophoging van de bruggen en verbreding van het kanaal zorgen dat vierlaags containervaart voor DV containers voortaan mogelijk wordt. Ook voor Gosselin is dit goed nieuws aangezien Logistics zwaar inzet op de binnenvaart als transportmiddel.
