Acconage Consignation Transit SA (ACT SA), a Coop member in Nouakchott, Mauritania, has handled the movement of a sea freight for the mining industry. The cargo was transported from Boke Port, Guinea, to Nouakchott Port, Mauritania on an MV Orient Pluto vessel. The shipment comprised of 168 Units of trucks, trailers, military equipment, excavators, and other rolling materials. It was destined for the mining industry particularly for the offshore gas field rocks transportation for BP Tortue. They executed this project on behalf of the logistics firm responsible for moving the rocks for the BP Tortue Projects.

They didn’t require any special equipment for the delivery of this cargo. According to Mr. Khalil Chouaib, from ACT, “We flawlessly executed several aspects of the shipment including offloading cargo from the vessel. We were also responsible for taking the cargo from under hook, lashing and warehousing. Moreover, our team did the customs clearance and trucking to the delivery site 60 Km from Nouakchott port.”

“We were in charge of the full logistic chain from vessel arrival until the final delivery of 168 units. The most demanding part of this project was that we had to ensure that the 168 units were delivered in intact condition. This also included the spare parts loaded inside some units. ThisĀ  shipment was not really challenging for our expert team. However, the sheer volume and diverse nature of the cargo made it slightly complicated,” adds Mr. Chouaib.

Congratulations to ACT, and wishing them the best for the future!
