Dealing With OOG Cargo: What You Need To Know
Thorough scoping and planning activities are crucial when handling OOG cargoes. Providing accurate information to your forwarder is essential. Here’s the key information that proves most helpful:
- A Defined Scope of Work: Share comprehensive details including origin, destination, commodity, and the term of carriage. Additionally, communicate handling capacity, site requirements, access, cargo sensitivity, and the need for cranes, if applicable.
- Technical Diagrams: Provide technical diagrams, prepared by an engineer, that outline cargo dimensions, center of gravity, and lifting points. These diagrams assist in determining the appropriate equipment and lashing required for safe transportation.
- Timelines: Communicate the readiness of your OOG cargo for movement and any delivery deadlines that must be met. Advance communication allows for review and necessary actions to ensure timely transportation.
- Operational Skill and Appropriate Resourcing: Our project cargo specialists, armed with a detailed scope of work, technical diagrams, and defined timelines, initiate operational planning. We leverage a vetted network of specialized suppliers, ensuring cost-effective handling by competent professionals.
Designing a Custom OOG Solution
A detailed operational plan is crucial to address the unique requirements of your project, encompassing all operational inputs from cargo readiness at the origin facility to delivery at the destination facility. The plan’s comprehensiveness is determined by the project’s complexity.
Operational Activities for OOG Cargo
- Origin Site Capability: Coordinate with key contacts at the origin site, conducting site visits if necessary, to understand site capacity, including crane availability, road conditions, site induction requirements, and operational hours.
- Transport: Based on the origin site’s characteristics, plan appropriate transportation methods. Technical diagrams and site requirements inform the equipment needed, such as multi-axle or extendable trailers. Coordinating mobile cranes may be necessary for cargo lifting.
- Cargo Handovers (Terminal Facilities): Deliver the cargo to terminal operators and cargo handlers (CTOs) at wharves and airports. Coordinate with key CTO stakeholders to ensure a smooth handover, considering any operating hour restrictions.
- Cargo Surveys: Upon delivery to CTOs, secure and lash the cargo, typically to Flat Racks, Mafis, or Unit Load Devices. Third-party surveys can be coordinated for added assurance.
