Tschudi Logistics in Sweden is currently coordinating the delivery of a Tissue Machine to Poland. One of the key components, the so-called Yankee Dryer, was shipped from Sweden and during approx. 20 days travelled via lake, sea and river. The journey was completed with a 200 km overland delivery to the final destination in south Poland.
The total carriage exceeded 200 tons with a length of 40 meter and height of almost 7 meters. 200 km appears to be a short distance but with more than 500 obstacles to be removed, and consequently a large number of stakeholders involved, the delivery had to be executed over four consecutive nights. The initial feasibility studies were carried out six months prior to execution and as usual good planning gives great results.
