How to transport beer equipment
By Niamh Marriott26 January 2022
A large cargo of beer production equipment was moved from Liverpool to Manchester in the UK.
The 6 metre wide overseas cargo was managed in the UK by Denholm Project Forwarding, a member of the Worldwide Project Consortium (WWPC), in cooperation with fellow WWPC member with LS International Cargo from Germany.
Though a relatively short journey, the project needed advance approval from police and local authorities to secure escort services and road closures.
A spokesperson for the company said, “Although the distance shipped was relatively short, Denholm Project Forwarding’s approach to meticulous planning was still required to ensure a safe, smooth and on-time delivery on behalf of its client.”
