Transportation firm BNSF Logistics has delivered heavy cement mill components from Turkey to Kenya.
The consignment measured 1,500 cubic meters and was collected from Izmir on Turkey's Aegean coast. A team from BNSF Logistics Global Project Center managed the complex move in collaboration with Turkish partner Smart Logistics in Istanbul.
From Izmir, the cargo was transported by truck to Mersin Port in Turkey, where it was loaded onto flat racks for shipment with Messina Line to Mombasa, Kenya.
Headquartered in Flower Mound, Texas, BNSF Logistics provides expertise in project cargo, ocean, rail, air, less-than-truckload and intermodal transport. The firm is a subsidiary of freight railroad operator Burlington Northern Santa Fe, which in turn is owned by the Berkshire Hathaway Holding Co. BNSFL is a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium, which connects breakbulk and project cargo providers around the globe.
