The English transport company ALS has participated in the project to transport 1,185 wagons from Poland to Saudi Arabia. The cargo, was divided into three types of wagons with dimensions of L:14.35 m x W:3.20 m x H: 4.50 m for a weight of 30 t each. They were transported by rail from the Polish factory to the port of Gdansk before making the trip by sea to Saudi Arabia. Arriving at Dammam, the wagons were loaded via a ramp onto specially prepared roll trailers with embedded rails, then lashed and secured for the sailing to their final destination. The entire project lasted 20 months.
Focus on solution to support the needs of petrol project specialist customer Aramco, Saudi Arabian heavy equipment rental company Bin Quraya (a company member of the Bin Quraya Group) recently invested in ten, 40 m (131 ft) Genie Xtra Capacity (XC) boom lifts delivered this January.
