Dear All,

Good News...

Proud to share with you the professional performance of OPCA member Winstar Logistic Pte Ltd, Singapore.

Winstar Logistic has recently handled heavylift shipment from Singapore to Batam, Indonesia.

Details of the Shipment:

Firstly 2 units of propulsion engine weights 72mt each, with 28 packages parts (ie.gas and water system, valves etc) were shipped from Korea to Singapore.

Winstar Logistic received direct from first carrier and transferred to their barge which was required to discharge at a Batam private shipyard. These items were meant for a navy vessel. One of the engine came with spreader bar, that added to the weight of 75mt and standing at the height of 5.7m. Winstar team needed to switch the spreader bar from one machine to another, and also provide labour to cover one of the machine with tarpauline which was not done at POL due to bad weather situation.

First carrier arrived Singapore on Thursday. The loading onto barge was planned on a Monday, however cnee requested for earlier delivery of the engines despite it was a long weekend in Batam. However, Winstar Logistic managed to push forward the loading and secured a heavy lift berth in port at last minute notice with the help of their team in the port. Finally the cargo arrived at cnee shipyard on Saturday instead of the initial plan on Tuesday.

Congratulations to WINSTAR LOGISTIC PTE LTD, Singapore for their excellent job.
