Project Cargo Mobile Asphalt

Starting Situation

In order to complete the construction of a new road in the Atacama Desert, in the north of Chile, our customer purchased a complete mobile asphalt plant from the leading Spanish asphalt plant equipment company. The challenge was to import the 1,600-ton freight from the supplier´s location to the Chilean port.


Hellmann Project Cargo was awarded the project management and import operations for the asphalt plant equipment by breakbulk shipment under ships hook delivery out to Iquique Port, North Chile. With the operation complete and cargo received at Iquique Port on schedule, in perfect condition, and within budget, Hellmann Project Cargo Chile received recognition for the overall project management and „hands-on“ supervision in delivering this project to our customer.
