GSS Delivers Labaun Reel
Freight forwarder Global Shipping Services has delivered an umbilical reel, stand and spreader bar from the U.S. to Labaun, Malaysia.
The over-dimensional parcel was transported by flat-rack with shipping line CMA-CGM and unloaded at Shell’s yard in Labaun. GSS partnered with Singapore firm Dextrans Worldwide.
“Several carriers had declined this cargo on flat racks due to the extreme OOG nature of the cargo … but we took it in our stride and adjusted accordingly the transfer to Labaun went very smoothly with just one day delay on the barge,” a spokesperson for GSS said.
Based in Miami, GSS is a member of the WCA network, which connects more than 4,588 member offices in 188 countries.
