Heavy Transport Services
With the expediting growth of industries in our nation and the recent trend of incorporating complexly designed industrial plants in engineering projects, the need for reliable heavy transportation services has become inevitable. This is exactly where Crescent Carriers comes to play the highly essential role with utmost responsibility. A renowned name in the industry, Crescent Carriers, is well-equipped with state-of-the-art technology which helps us to transport heavy and over-sized cargoes expertly at your destination at the right time. Crescent Carriers has previously held the record of transporting Pakistan’s heaviest, longest and widest cargo of 510 metric tonnes, 55.47 metres and 9.75 metres, respectively. Moreover, our firm was able to transport two of the most complexed supercargoes for Engro Chemicals. The unconventionally sized 52.35 x 5.87 x 6.45 meters carbon dioxide absorber, weighing 421 metric tonnes was transported on a trailer that was custom-engineered in our workshop while the 50.30 x 7.45 x 7.10 meters vacuum column, weighing 217 metric tonnes was transported on Goldhofer Hydraulic Trailer.
All the transport operations are streamlined from our purpose designed cell that overlooks heavy haulage, industrial services and project management for our clients. Moreover, the company offers the largest fleet of multi-axle hydraulic trailers in Pakistan with over 140 axle lines and 70 prime overs with an extraordinary capacity of horsepower. Our firm has especially invested in trailers that can be modified through our in-house engineering facilities to transport cargoes of a wide range of nature, shape and size. A detailed route survey is conducted for every project by our team of qualified engineers who identify and plan for any contingencies that might be faced due to the local infrastructure. Needless to say, this practice helps us deliver cargoes with unconventional dimensions and weight, securely and on time. Hence, it is not just the top-notch engineering facilities that makes Crescent Carriers a benchmark for heavy haulage in Pakistan but also the firm’s impeccable management that ensures timely delivery of all the cargoes that come our way.
Heavy Lifting Services
Heavy lifting has a crucial importance in any industry, be it for the maintenance of industrial plants or for setting up mega projects. The task of lifting up delicate machinery and components is undoubtedly immensely difficult however, it is particularly tricky due to the high human risk involved. Hence the lifting procedure depends heavily on the sturdiness and reliability of the machinery used as well as the technical skills of the operators. Crescent Carriers once again comes through all the perquisites required in doing the complexed job with great precision and efficiency. Our fleet of 35 technologically advanced heavy lifting cranes includes crawler, truck mounted, mobile telescopic, all terrain and rough terrain crane. These cranes are tested regularly and are certified by various globally renowned inspection agencies. Moreover, the crane operators in our team are only inducted after being trained under our highly rigorous training programme. The crane operators and technicians obtain certification from inspection agencies such as, SGS, Bureau Veritas, URS and TUV Austria before they are deployed at the site. Thus the heavy lifting services provided by our firm guarantees to safeguard the staff and the freight every single time. Crescent Carriers offers specialized elevation services to the clients with a capacity of up to 300 metric tonnes of load. We have previously extended our heavy lifting services to numerous projects, including lifting of project cargo directly from the vessel. The firm also served Hub Power Company Ltd in its Narowal Project in 2009. The challenging task involved lifting 11 boilers by using 150 crawlers and 100 tonnes mobile crane. Similarly, 33 boilers were vertically erected for Atlas Power Plant and Nishat Power Projects.
Crescent Carriers accommodate its clients in renting out lifting equipment for contractual projects as well as offer erection services, depending on the requirements of the job. Furthermore, we provide equipment to the clients with the promise of zero downtime. Therefore, if the equipment ever faces technical errors on the site, our trained technicians take swift diagnosis actions followed by effective remedial steps to resume operations timely. Our solution based approach helps us in gaining customer satisfaction and making long term ties with our clients in every project that we become a part of.
Complete Project Logistics
At Crescent Carriers, we understand the value of time in industrial operations and how the incapability of keeping up with the pace of supply and demand can affect the functionality of an industry and cause colossal damage. Hence, we go extra miles to provide logistical solutions to our esteemed clients for the transportation of their project cargos so that the line of supply is never disrupted, even if the infrastructure poses to be the greatest threat in the course. The process involves thorough route surveys and listing down the limitations and possible risks found in the infrastructure. The flaws in the infrastructure are overcome by the capability of our engineering facilities and equipment which are prepped in advance. The firm tries its best to not let the routes confine us in delivering the project cargos on time. Our skilled team constructed and deployed a 41-metre long purpose built bridge in order to facilitate smooth transportation of two tunnel boring machine, which had to be crossed over the river during the development of Neelum Jhelum Power Project. Hence if need be, we make routes of our own to expedite transportation of load as efficiently as possible. The planning and preparation is done well ahead of time and is customised for every project that we receive, taking into consideration the magnitude, influx and the fragility of the freight. It is due to this detailed planning of logistical solutions that Crescent Carriers has been able to provide record breaking project logistics to its valued clients since 1929.
The firm has been successful at providing excellent logistical solutions at more than one instances. We have collaborated with Hub Power Company in the past on its Narowal Power Project. The project required 11 MAN Diesel Engines, each weighing 320 metric tonnes, to not just be transported to the site but also placed onto their foundations. The company chose Enerpac four point hydraulic jacking system to perform the demanding job managed and needless to say, we were able to deliver the goal with great precision in this project as well.
Recently, our logistical solution services were employed for the 1320 MW Sahiwal Coal Power Project. The task included the transportation of many unconventionally sized cargos, comprising of two generator strators, each weighing 345 metric tonnes. The route covered over 1200 kilometres from the pick-up point at Port Qasim to the construction site at Qadirabad, near Sahiwal. Crescent Carriers was again able to create a global record of delivering the fastest coal power project cargo to its clients on site in just 26 months.
Custom Clearance & Forwarding
Crescent Carriers has an eminent reputation in the industrial world because of its streamlined heavy transport services and to maintain the firm’s standing in the field, Crescent Carriers continues to promise its client an extraordinary level of convenience. For this very purpose, the company integrated custom clearance in its area of services back in 1983, hence providing its clients a one-window solution for transportation, from port to site. The benefits of custom clearing and transportation services under one roof have been quite evident in all the projects undertaken by us in the past. Effective coordination and efficient operations achieved through this method helped the firm deliver project goals of clearing more than 250,000 freight tonnes within strict time-frame of 26 months in our recent collaboration with CPEC for the 1320 MW Sahiwal Coal Power Project. Over the years, our skilled and experienced staff has helped the firm’s clearing department to build up a name that is unparalleled to any other in the market and this has resulted in us satisfying our numerous clients by making their project cargos cleared at the port and subsequently transported to their destination.
