Axis Shipping Transports Grab Equipment from The Netherlands to Amazon River Location in Brazil

After 6 months of negotiation with a big barge company in Brazil, Axis Shipping was hired to plan and execute a project to bring on a huge Grab to be installed in a new vessel built in the Amazon River to transport soy and other grains.

Axis, along with our WCA partner, made the transport from the middle of The Netherlands via barge to Rotterdam and performed the stuffing / lashing onto a flat rack container for safe sailing to Vila do Conde Port.

For this special operation, Axis performed the customs procedures with the Brazilian authorities and delivered the grab during the night shift directly to the barge that is being installed.
