Granite handling Forklifts

Posted: 16 Nov 2017

Another team effort on this shipment of a 40 tonne front end loader. This is the second of seven similar beasts that are being imported from Shanghai, China and will be used at granite mines near Karibib. The FUDA forklift is valued at 1,8 million dollars and is especially engineered for marble and granite quarries. Woker Freight Service handled the customs clearance, Ocean Liner service provided ships agency and Walvis Bay Stevedoring handled the offloading. According to Antua Jacobs, it was a challenge to coordinate the cranes, “but all worked out well with the assistance of the shipping line, OLS and WBS. This project once again emphasises the importance of teamwork.”
