Heading for Africa and Asia

The US firm V. Alexander International Logistics, founded in Tennessee in 1946, has run a subsidiary in Bremen (Germany) since 2008. The company has already handled many heavylift transport jobs from Germany to international destinations in 2013.

The firm V. Alexander International Logistics is well-established in Germany. The undertaking has carried out several heavylift transport orders to Mediterranean countries and also beyond its European markets recently.

In this European summer’s heat V. Alexander, a member to the Cargo Equipment Experts CEE network in Germany, once again carried an oversized and very heavy heat exchanger from Berlin to the French commune of Lavéra, near Fos on the Mediterranean coast. The overland heavylift transport task weighed 56 t overall, and covered the 1,800 km route in approximately four days. The company’s in-house surveyor was on location in Lavéra to sign off the shipment.

The company also recently completed the fifth successful shipment for the mining industry from Spain to Senegal. A 2,500 cbm steel construction was transported from Spain to West Africa. V. Alexander organized pre-carriage in Spain, the part-charter of a vessel, the loading and unloading operations in Spain and in Senegal and a final complete survey by the company’s surveyor. The project has already seen a total of approximately 20,000 t shipped for the mining project in Senegal.
