In Colombia, the Sociedad Portuaria Regional de Barranquilla (SPRB), which operates the Port of Barranquilla, has acquired a new barge loader from ABHS.
Originally the port brought in imported grain by Handymax vessels, with consignments initially unloaded directly into hoppers and then stored in warehouses on the quayside. For onward transport, the grain was again loaded onto trucks, and then loaded on ‘Impala’ barges for transport up the Magdalena River to end users further inland.
The mobile barge loader sold to SPRB forms an integral part of this logistics chain, since it is used to move the grain efficiently from ‘truck-to-barge’, thereby minimizing double handling, contamination and dust emissions often inherent when differing types of grains are being handled.
