Fracht is pleased to have successfully transported windmill blades to northern Iowa. The cargo was transported via vessel from China to the US, where the cargo was then transferred by Fracht and their vendors into 6 hopper-barges. As predicted, the blades fit perfectly into the hopper barges, utilizing close to 100% of the space and confirming Fracht’s ability to provide a seamless plan. In addition, Fracht helped the client select the terminal location in Iowa for the most efficient discharge and distribution of the blades. Fracht’s ability to think outside the box and cost saving suggestions provided many benefits to the client.
