Absorption column from Italy is delivered to the Bronka port


Across started its delivery operations at the port of Bronka: a sea freight from Italy was arranged by the manufacturer.
At the Bronka port one of Across teams performed a set of forwarding and surveying operations, after which the column was loaded onto a river vessel. Loading was performed by two twin Liebherr cranes.

Column on 16-axle road train on the way to Kemerovo

At the port of Nizhnekamsk a modular trawl was prepared in advance and assembled into the required configuration: 12 main axles on the trawl and 4 axles on the tractor.

On the way to Kemerovo a line of a trawl and three follow vehicles crossed 9 regions: Tatarstan and Bashkortostan republics, as well as Chelyabinsk, Kurgan, Tyumen, Omsk, Novosibirsk, Tomsk and Kemerovo regions.

To overcome steep hilly roads in Kemerovo oblast an additional tractor on a rigid drawbar was involved.
Cargo tracking was carried out thanks to the internal IT service SENDO, which showed the location of the absorber on the map in 24/7 format
