PPG Turkey Successfully Completes Challenging Mining Task

PPG Turkey, Genel Transport’s project team has successfully completed a challenging task of moving 1,387 tonnes/12,263 cbm of mining equipment from 3 different suppliers to be stored, then shipped as per their Client’s delivery plan.


Inland trucking operations took 10 days in which  90 low beds, modular trailers, low-loaders and several flatbed trailers were used. Unfinished paints of the cargo were then completed at the storage area upon request of their customer. Once the vessel arrived at port, cargo was transported from storage area and loading operations were completed in 7 days using a 200 tonne shore crane.


Multi-purpose heavy lift vessel M/V “BBC Canada” was chartered to ship cargo from Gemlik, Turkey to Fremantle, Australia. The most challenging aspect was to ensure the Gelenl team’s health and safety during this COVID19 pandemic period. With all measures taken their team safely completed the task with excellence and to the complete satisfaction of their client.
