Houston, October 2017- At this years Breakbulk Conference 2017, Fracht North America hosted it’s 2nd Transport Engineering Workshop, this time with a focus on Modular Transportation. Presenters included industry experts Andy Young from Bechtel, Mark Lockwood from Fracht, Toby Allen from ALE, Roberto Frigeni from Roll Group and Vince Schu from Ceres Barge Co.

A key take-away from this workshop is that Fracht’s and its partners’ fresh ideas and out of the box thinking, allow them to meet the ever changing needs of their customers.

Francht's Vania Levee and Lupita McGregor welcome guests at this years workshop.

The workshop gave important insight into modular design, constructibility and the importance of strategic partnerships during
logistical execution of over sized modules. Bechtels’ Andy Young, presented their Flex Sim technology to simulate heavy modular projects using Monte Carlo Simulation. It is through this type and other types of technologies that allow companies like these and providers like Fracht, the ability to find the safest and most optimal design for safe transit.

Frachts's Modular Transport Workshop was an exciting event for industry leaders as they sat and listened attentively to industry experts in the freight forwarding business.
