Houston, USA – GAC’s project logistics experts recently loaded a 14.1 ton assembly dolly and ensured quick transportation and early delivery from Houston through Los Angeles and on to Luanda, Angola, for Ensco plc, a global provider of offshore drilling services.

GAC North America Logistics, ensured the safe and quick arrival of a 14.1 ton assembly dolly from Houston through Los Angeles and on to Luanda, Angola for Ensco plc.

Despite a timeline adjustment and an increased freight size of the dolly, which is what the top drive unit rides on inside an oil derrick, GAC was able to meet the customer’s amended requirements and an agreement was quickly signed for a part charter.

From there, US customs documents and freight lists were prepared, and the move was executed with coordination from Ensco’s Kevin Rosato, Senior Coordinator Logistics & Trade.

"Given the criticality of this shipment, I knew GAC was who to turn to. The part charter was handled with precision and expertise," says Rosato.

GAC’s own Joshua Wagner, Key Accounts Manager, personally flew to Los Angeles from Houston to ensure the freight was in order and on its way to Angola. The dolly was safely delivered a day ahead of its scheduled launch.
