Prudential Shipping handles biggest cargo operation at
 Hambantota Port


The biggest cargo operation so far at the Hambantota Port was recently handled by Prudential Shipping Lines, which was proud to have been the agents for this pioneering operation, adding another feather in its cap to a journey of excellence with multifaceted services.  

The operation involved two heavy lift ships M.V. HHL Hong Kong and M.V. Beluga Singapore, transferring a cargo of 12,000 CBM of machinery from one ship to the other (transhipment) by way of double banking the two ships.

The cargo consisted of heavy machinery/project cargo, which included more than 10 pieces with a weight of 200 plus tonnes each and the operation had to be meticulously planned to avoid any damages to both ships and the cargo.

The operation was carried out and concluded smoothly under the supervision of a specialist cargo superintendent who arrived from Germany and to the total satisfaction of the owners.
