At the Port of Gdansk at the Szczecinskie Quay, CEVA Logistics has collected the cargo, preparing 154 elements of the drilling rig structure for sea transport, with a total weight of over 2,000 tons. The cargo will be sailed on the SAL "Annette" ship to the anchorage near Songo Songo Island off the coast of Tanzania. This spectacular loading started on Monday, September 13, and lasted four days.

CEVA Logistics is a global leader in freight forwarding and logistics. The company's orders include the most complex logistic projects.

– One of such orders is loading and transport heavy drilling platform structures delivered to the Port of Gdansk from plants in Poland, Croatia and the Netherlands for EXALO DRILLING, part of the PGNIG group – says Mariusz Rutowicz, Director of Project Logistics CEVA in Eastern Europe. – Our task is to transport the drilling rig to the coast of Tanzania to the Songo Songo Island. We collected over 2 million kilograms, about 9,000 cubic meters, 154 items at the Port of Gdansk. This cargo will go to the ship "Annette", which will set off on a sea journey to Africa – he explains.
