Water level and sailing channel restrictions of the Magdalena River reduced the barge transportation opportunities during the rainy season. This meant that we had to wait before the operation could be kicked off.
Due to a lack of adequate terminal infrastructure at Puerto Triunfo, a temporary jetty for a smooth beach landing had to be built.
When the cargo arrived in Cartagena it was stored in a Free Trade Zone close to the port and according to plan. As soon as the water level of the river was suitable for barging, it was trucked to the port and loaded in a roll-on operation. After everything was then securely lashed and secured, and the barge started its journey to Puerto Triunfo.
Due to the challenging river conditions, Conceptum Logistics and our partners were the very first to move such heavy haul cargo to this area! The final steps before arrival were a successfully executed roll-off beach landing operation, temporary storage of the cargo and then truck transportation to the jobsite.
Of course, Conceptum Colombia’s project experts personally supervised the complete project from start to successful completion.
