Freight solutions for Oil & Gas
Friday night, last Friday of the month, and the quarter end. Eurosprint received a telephone call at 7.00pm from one of our Oil and Gas clients, informing us that an oil rig was on fire in the north sea, and that certain parts had to be collected from several UK point’s and delivered up to Aberdeen port immediately and without fail to assist in putting the fire out, now this would normally not be a problem, but some of the goods were eleven metres long and hazardous, some of the other goods were also hazardous, but could not be shipped with the other hazardous cargo as they were not compatible, a headache at any time of the month. The Eurosprint team evaluated what hazardous cargo could be shipped together and what couldn’t, and what cargo had to be collected first due to the sites closing very soon for the weekend. Once all this was complete we put forward a collection schedule to our client informing them of what was being collected, and when it was to arrive at Aberdeen Port, this way the client had a clear idea of where their parts were at any given time en-route to delivery point, we are pleased to announce the parts arrived on time and the fire was eventually extinguished.
