We unloaded from a lo/lo vessel, and stored in a bonded warehouse 3,000mt of bagged sodium silicate. HFS later palletized, shrink wrapped and trucked the cargo in transit to Port Au Prince Haiti.
After tropical storm Jeanne, all bridges and roads to the towns of Bavaro, Higuey and Macao were destroyed by the rains. The east of the country, were the majority of the hotels are, was disconnected from the Santo Domingo, were most products are produced. HFS quickly acted and chartered a landing craft from the neighboring island of Saint Thomas. Transport of fuel tanker trucks and container of foodstuffs was done from Chavon River to Bayahibe beach. Landing craft was the only choice; for there are no sea ports in the east. The disembarking site was Bayahibe beach were the draft is 2ft. Transport was done river bank/beach.
Client: Mediterranean Shipping Company
In 2005, the shore cranes in the port of Port au Prince, Haiti were experiencing mechanichal problems. These mechanichal problems caused a significant delay in the ship discharge operation. MSC opted to discharge their containers in the trashipment por of Caucedo, Domincan Reublic for them to be trucked, in bond to Haiti. HFS, exclusively, transported over 1,500 full containers in a period of six months.
