X2 Projects Member V.Alexander Complete Move of a Large Ship Propeller
The Freight Forwarding experts at V.Alexander shipped the massive propeller which weighed a total of 76 Tons & had the following dimensions: 10.60 x 8.90 x 1.70 m. This excludes the crates that was used during the move which weighed 3.1 Tons (1.70 x 1.70 x 1.70 m)
The V. Alexander Team took possession of the propeller at the Port of Hamburg. Due to the massive weight of the cargo, they had to use a swimming crane and lift the propeller off the truck.

The containers were then delivered to Busan, Korea after travelling a total of 4,613 Nautical Miles ( 8550 Kms). On arrival the propeller was once again lifted off the mother vessel and directed to the barge.
