Bolloré Logistics Achieves Remarkable Feat: Transporting Massive Drilling Rig from Argentina to Mongolia
Bolloré Logistics Chile has accomplished a remarkable logistical achievement, successfully overseeing the transportation of a colossal mobile drilling rig from Argentina to Mongolia. The rig, comprising five parts with a total volume of 650 cubic meters and an astounding weight of 118 tonnes, posed a significant challenge for the logistics team. The operation, executed in late August of the previous year, required meticulous coordination and collaboration among Bolloré Logistics offices in Argentina, Chile, Canada, and China.
Ensuring a seamless door-to-door solution, the team navigated the complex journey through Argentina, Chile, China, and finally, Mongolia. Special trailers were employed to transport the rig’s components through Chile by road, followed by sea transport from Lirquen to Qingdao in China. Subsequently, four trucks transported the machinery to its ultimate destination in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. The entire process demanded precise planning and execution to guarantee the rig’s safe arrival without disruptions.
The logistical feat also involved utilizing port machinery storage services to safeguard the rig during transit, ensuring that each component remained secure and intact until the final handover. Jorge Anacona, Managing Director of Bolloré Logistics Chile, expressed gratitude to the teams and offices involved, emphasizing the industry’s ability to overcome extraordinary challenges. He highlighted the company’s expertise in managing large-scale logistics projects through the successful implementation of door-to-door solutions.
