“On a grand scale” shipping
How to transport 15 adult hippos from China to Kazakhstan? No, this is not a logic puzzle. This is the weight of 2 mining machines, which were transported by Major Cargo Service Kazakhstan, a member of ACEX in Kazakhstan, who delivered two 23-ton mining machines from China (Shanghai city) to Kazakhstan (Koktau village) for the recipient of Aktobe Copper Company LLP, which is a part of the Russian Copper Company JSC group.
Timur Abdreimov, Deputy development director in Major Cargo Service, commented: “After 2 months of negotiations with the consignee, an agreement on the transportation of mining vehicles by road on low loader trawls was reached. The transportation was not easy. Firstly, let's not forget about the restrictive measures on Covid-19 in China - this complicates the life of logisticians all around the world, including our case. Secondly, just on the date of dispatch, there were holidays in Kazakhstan, which should have increased the time of delivery and customs clearance".
However, ACEX specialists in Kazakhstan delivered the cars in record time - 15 calendar days. Such a transportation could be named “expository”.
