You already knew that Aertssen Transport is providing exceptional transport. We take care of even the toughest transport jobs and ensure all goes to plan. We also guarantee the accommodation of various loads. For example, for quite some time now we have been managing the outdoor and indoor storage of a complete sieve and purification plant for gold mining projects.

This special task is carried out under the supervision of customs. The first deliveries, in total almost 3,500 m³ weighing 1,300 tonnes, dates back to the end of 2013. In May 2014, the entire installation, with its original final destination of West Africa, was transferred to us.

Due to changing market conditions, the owner, one of the world’s largest mining companies, eventually decided to relocate his plant to another continent. In June we were ordered to ship this complete installation to Australia. A huge logistical challenge.

Thorough cleaning

Experience has in fact taught us that Australia has very strict import regulations in place to prevent contamination. The entire plant was therefore subjected to thorough cleaning, including disassembly and assembly, rust removal, repainting and disinfection with disinfectants.

After treatment the Aertssen departments Transport, Kranen and Forwarding were jointly responsible for the multimodal (by inland barge and truck) delivery at the terminal of departure.

Six weeks later the installation – loaded on 27 roll trailers – reached its final destination Fremantle. After a flawless passage through customs, the goods were unloaded without any problems.

A strong example of total logistics! And that is what our customers appreciate, anywhere in the world.
