The cargo that we needed to move for a client in Singapore was OOG (Out of Gauge). This is typically cargo which exceeds the dimensions of a shipping container by length, height or both. The equipment that needed
moving was steel drums in 2 separate shipments, equalling 125T & 95T. It had to be moved by police
escort and through busy Keppel and Downtown areas in Singapore.
The two shipments were arranged on behalf of a local Singaporean client and loaded in Shanghai.
The cargo was transited by RoRo (Roll on Roll off) and an out of gauge flat rack to Port of Singapore
with the final destination being Paya Lebar and Labrador. The shipment consisted of 3 oversized
drums of cable management machines and each consignment required a 250 ton mobile crane to
complete the offloading and loading onto low bed trailers for the inland transport.
Traffic management was key to the overall success of the final mile delivery, taking the load during
the night and a 3am delivery time resolved many of the traffic issues. Everything was in place at all
times to ensure the cargo was delivered safely and without any hitches, our mobile cranes were
lifting each piece into position at the destination ports.
All relevant authorities were pre-notified and kept advised at all times through to arranging the out
of gauge (OOG) shipment through Singapore and final delivery. The delivery was supervised late into the night with the shipment delivered on time and without damage.
