ACL – ATLANTIC CONTAINER LINE

ACL DELIVERS WAYNE HUIZENGA'S PRIVATE HELICOPTER

A Eurocopter EC-155B for Wayne Huizenga owner of the Miami Dolphin's football team sailed from the United Kingdom via one of Atlantic Container Line's five combination RORO/Containerships, "Atlantic Cartier". The 12-seater helicopter is one of three operating in the United States. The EC-155B's blade span is 41'7" long (tip nose to end tail pylon), 11' wide (with blades removed), height (to toptail) 14', with an operating weight 6,000 pounds. The copter was shipped overseas for Mr. Huizenga's recent sporting events in Europe. Once back in the United States, the U.S. Government leased the Eurocopter for demonstrations before returning it to Mr. Huizenga. Felix Huang of Helicopters International said "ACL was chosen because of its unique ability to transport the $7 million helicopter intact, safe and secure from the elements for its roundtrip transatlantic voyage without dismantling it". With some of the world's largest and most sophisticated Container/RORO ships in the world, ACL was the only combination roll-on, roll-off container carrier that had all "the creative solutions" to handle the and provide the safest transport. The helicopter was prepared for its transatlantic voyage and rolled onto the ACL vessel via its 420 metric ton stern ramp aboard the "ATLANTIC COMPASS".


ALL ABOARD AS ACL'S TRANSPORTS ORIENT EXPRESS

Atlantic Container Line transported the Orient Express antique Pullman Dining Carriage from Liverpool, England to Elizabeth, New Jersey aboard its RORO/containership, ATLANTIC CONCERT. The train car, weighing 43 tons, standing 13 feet tall, 70 feet long and 9 feet wide was driven directly into one of the three main RORO decks of the vessel via her 420 metric ton capacity stern ramp. Upon arrival at Port Elizabeth, the deluxe tourist carriage was quickly discharged and transported by special truck to Manhattan's Wall Street, as part of the festivities for the New York Stock Exchange party marking the ‘Orient-Express Hotels Ltd’ Independent Public Offering. Following the successful IPO event, ACL transported the Pullman back to England, where it operates as part of the Orient-Express travel company's luxury train fleet.

 

TUSCOR LLOYDS GLOBAL LOGISTICS

TUSCOR LLOYDS’ PROJECT MANAGEMENT TEAM COMPLETED A SHIPMENT OF 8 HEAVY DUMP TRUCKS FROM ANTWERP, BELGIUM TO PUERTO CORTES, HONDURAS.

The 272 ton break bulk shipment consisted of 8 wheeled mining dump trucks weighing 34 tons each which were urgently required by a major mining company in Honduras. Tuscor Lloyds was called in to organise the port to port shipment between the port of Antwerp and Puerto Cortés Honduras.

 

The cargo was already located at the berth in Antwerp awaiting for departure but the client’s needs dramatically changed and they requested our assistance to source a fast sailing option.

With this task completed the cargo was moved to our nominated berth under the shipper arrangement where we arranged for cargo to be loaded to our appointed vessel. Whilst such a job would not normally be news worthy this action was completed in a very short amount of time. The dump trucks were loaded under the supervision off their appointed Cargosuper with the last unit being loaded just shortly after 0100hrs Saturday morning allowing the client a restful weekend.
