GMTC is an approved freight forwarding and transportation company with Kuwait National Petroleum Company (KNPC) to handle contracts up to KD 10 million. In addition, GMTC is an ISO & HSC certified company, and has successfully handled cargo logistics of more than 16 oil and infrastructure projects in Kuwait over the past 15 years.

The scope of the On-Shore transportation Contract covers:

  1. Customs Clearance
  2. Transportation of approximately 762,000 Freight Tone of Break Bulk Cargo and about 7750 Containerized Cargo from Port to Job site.

The cargo consists of super heavy and over-dimensional units. The longest piece is 80 meters long, the widest unit is 12 meters wide and the tallest one is 12.5 meters tall. The heaviest unit has a weight of 850 metric tons.

For the execution of the contract, GMTC is supported by M/s Al Majdouie Logistics from Saudi Arabia, who holds the Guinness Book of World Records for Heavy Lift Transportation.

The challenge to the successful execution of the project is completing the customs clearance processes and deliveries within the shortest time frame under the existing government procedures and port infrastructure limitations. Nevertheless, GMTC is very confident that with the proper planning and with the support of Ministries, Port and Customs Authorities, they will be able to execute the project successfully.

GMTC together with Al Majdouie is looking forward to focus more on Kuwait’s project market and to handle other larger scale projects in the near future.
