Shepherd Offshore Comments:

Shepherd offshore was tasked with a 1-reel loadout and the careful packing of cargo into shipping containers for some of our prestigious clients. High-level plans were created to ensure smooth, effective, and safe operations for a fast turnaround. A particular focus on timing was critical to ensure the Vessel could berth, load, sea fasten and sail off on the same day.

Shepherd Offshore was also tasked with packing containers with 49 crates, paying particular focus on the weight distribution of the cargo. Shepherd Offshore ensured that the cargo was packed tight and safe, efficiently minimising wasted space in the container. Upon completion, the containers were lifted to the Vessel with the 325te HH, utilising our lifting supervisors' wealth of knowledge.

The containers were lifted flat, with no movement or damage to any cargo inside. Well done to all involved in another successful and safe project, we look forward to the next project.
