The vehicle is the largest Pure Car and Truck Carrier (PCTC) in the world, with a carrying capacity of 8500 car equivalent units. It has a ramp width of 12 meters, a free deck height of up to 6.5 meters, and can transport cargo weighing up to 375 tonnes. Höegh Autoliners acquired six of these Post Pᴀɴᴀᴍᴀx ships in 2015 and 2016 respectively.
When a client needed to carry six sizable multimedia filters from Jebel Ali to Sɪɴɢᴀᴘᴏʀᴇ for an offshore project, they contacted Höegh Autoliners. Because of its rapid and dependable liner service from the Middle East to Asia and expertise in managing large breakbulk shipments, they knew they were in good hands. Because each breakbulk cargo is unique, meticulous planning is required for the more intricate ones. During the pre-shipment phase, the cargo handling team evaluates blueprints or photographs of the items to determine the best and safest means of sending it.
On-site inspection revealed four strong legs totaling 4.65 meters wide that were attached to each end of the 32 000 kg of multimedia filters and sustained them. This meant that the units could not be placed directly on the 2.6m wide rolltrailers without undergoing some sort of modification to ensure its stability.
A specialized solution was obviously needed because handling expertise with this kind of out-of-gauge freight is essential. Knut Erik went back to the drawing board to determine what kind of machinery would be needed to transport the six enormous modules safely. A fleet of 3300 rolltrailers from Höegh Autoliners are designed to safely transport a range of breakbulk freight and come in various lengths and capacities.
