This month we transported a Caterpillar excavator from Dar es Salaam to Namoya for one of our clients who required the excavator urgently on site for their ongoing mining operations.

With the excavator consisting of an undercarriage measuring 4.6 meters wide, we conducted a route risk assessment prior to the move so as to ensure the narrow roads in DRC allowed for the safe movement of our trucks to site. Once this was established, we disassembled the excavator and loaded it out on 6 trucks accompanied by 2 escort vehicles.

Alistair Group works to make Africa work better; as such we aim to grow with the sub-Saharan Africa logistics sector and look forward to receiving more abnormal cargo.
