This past December, we helped move a very expensive, and very cool-looking motorcycle from Alabama, United States, to Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

The motorcycle is built entirely of the 6061 aerospace billet aluminum, and, unfortunately, our export team could not take the motorcycle for a test drive prior to it’s departure to Dubai.

Green Worldwide has just moved two Cookers weighing 85,000 pounds (each!) from Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, to a Biogas facility in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada.

At 2,950 miles, the move took the loads across nearly the entire width of Canada. The massive cargo was loaded in Rotterdam on two 40’FR and were transloaded to flatbed equipment at Halifax Port. The two units arrived in Lethbridge on December, 3rd after 9 days on the road and under some snow storms.

Port of Baltimore Tour

port-of-baltimore

Thank you to Lightning Transportation for inviting Thomas Grone, our New York Branch Manager to tour the Port of Baltimore!

Thomas took a tour of the port, followed by a cruise around Baltimore Harbor on the Baltimore Pride II. The Baltimore Pride II is a replica Tall Ship of a Baltimore Clipper, a type of ship that was heavily used by Privateers in the War of 1812. During the 19th century, Baltimore clipper ships sped from the Port around the world and developed a particularly lucrative trade with South America. In addition to seeing a beautiful historic ship, it was fascinating to see how far shipping has come since 1812.

The Port of Baltimore is still the largest port in volume in the USA, and is over 300 years old. It is also the most efficient port in North America for containerized turn times and second in the Americas only to the Panama Canal! During the first six months of 2015, the Journal of Commerce ranked the Port of Baltimore as number one in the nation for container berth productivity, with the Port averaging 75 container movements each hour per berth. Three of the world’s largest container shipping companies – Evergreen, Maersk, and MSC – now operate at the Port.
