Transhipment Solutions

Flexibility and innovation are key to CSL’s solutions-driven approach, and have led to the development of highly effective export and import transhipment solutions that give clients around the world a competitive edge.

A successful transhipment operation starts with a full review of the logistics challenge, which allows CSL to determine the optimal overall solution.

Once the review is completed, the design of the cargo-handling system, selection of equipment makers and choice of building yard are critical. Transhipment is a highly intensive operation, often taking place in remote areas, so reliability is paramount. Reliability and productivity originate in the design, and this is an area in which CSL excels.

CSL develops optimum transhipment solutions based on a combination of factors:

  • Geography and port loading infrastructure;
  • Requirement for offshore storage facilities;
  • Distance from the port to the transhipment site;
  • Depth of water available;
  • MetOcean conditions;
  • Cargo profile.

A Partner at Every Step

CSL’s service includes support from the pre-feasibility study phase of the transhipment operation through to the completion of the project. In the pre-feasibility phase, CSL conceptualizes transhipment solutions and provides a comprehensive analysis of productivity, throughput, lead time, risk and cost. When an investment decision is made, CSL provides all capital for the transhipper, builds it, owns it and operates it – while guaranteeing productivity.
