Smooth sailing for wagon delivery
A major shipment of rail wagons in Port of Townsville has been sent on its way with the help of a custom-made handling solution from NSS.
On Wednesday this week NSS unloaded 62 rail wagons from the MV Warnow Merkur for customer Geodis/UGL.
In preparation for the shipment, NSS engineered custom spreader bars to connect to equipment using standardised container twistlocks - allowing the over-width units to be handled safely from vessel to shore.
NSS has carried all stevedoring of the wagons, transport to nearby laydown yard and delivery to a rail siding within the port of Townsville for commissioning by UGL.
From there, the Watco Australia wagons are set to be railed to the central and south eastern Queensland to join the Graincorp fleet.
NSS is ready for a second shipment of 64 wagons, due to arrive on Saturday (August 24).
