Sacmi Imola presses head for Mexico with Italiansped’s outsize shipping service

A specially leased ship, the BBC Germany, left the port of Ravenna on 14th January. Its destination: the Mexican port of Altamira

A new mission, then, for Italiansped, the Sacmi Group company that specialises in international shipping solutions. As part of a dual order for five high tonnage PH series presses (produced at Sacmi Imola) for two leading ceramic manufacturers which have headquarters and production facilities in Mexico, Italiansped has arranged a tailor-made combined shipment. The outsize load sailed from Ravenna on 14th January.

Loaded onto the BBC Germany – leased specially for this shipment and equipped with a crane able to lift crates weighing up to 300 tons – the shipment will arrive at the Mexican port of Altamira at the start of February. Given the considerable weight and bulk of the individual presses and the relative equipment, some parts have been dismantled, resulting in a total number of 16 crates weighing from 46 to 161 tons each.

On arriving at Altamira, the 4 crates containing one press will be picked up by the customer, while the other 12 crates containing the four remaining presses will be delivered directly by Italiansped to the customer's manufacturing plant: all part of the comprehensive service offered by Sacmi's shipping company which, on request, offers a complete door-to-door service, from factory to installation site.

This complex shipping task highlights Sacmi-Italiansped's ability to offer truly global advanced shipping solutions. We provide personalised services designed to satisfy the customer's needs and optimise all logistics and handling; where necessary, we supply carefully-researched, complex solutions for the specific load to be transported. A fast, efficient turnkey service that, thanks to the Italiansped global network, reaches around the world, all thanks to a far-reaching web of professionals and effective teamwork with leading carriers and logistics firms.

More specifically, this shipment to Mexico represents a strategic success on the Central American market, essential to the Sacmi Group's business expansion and development goals.
