With a vast experience in handling projects and one that is put to the test on a daily basis, Globalink’s Project Division never disappoints. Readers may not know but after almost a decade of servicing the Oil & Gas Industry in the CIS, Globalink has expanded into Iraq where it is fast making a name for itself in the same field.
Having successfully handled several pipe shipments for various pipeline projects, we were approached once again to provide our services for a massive shipment of steel pipes. After successfully chartering 12 vessels needed to carry the 100,000 tons load, Globalink’s Project Team were on hand and ready to go once the vessels docked at the Port of Umm Qasr, Iraq. While needed cranes were in place to offload the pipes into the storage area, other team members handled the customs clearance formalities. With the clearance taken care of swiftly, the cranes came back into action again and loaded the trucks for their departure to the job site. Given security concerns, the Security Convoy, arranged by Globalink as well, joined the trucks and accompanied them. At destination, required cranes organized by our Teams took care of the offloading and with that done, our entire team could finally sit back and enjoy the fact that they had excelled once again and handled a staggering total of just under 5, 500 truck loads without a single incident.
