Completion of TRACE Certified due diligence underscores TGP’s commitment to commercial transparency, ethical business practices and anti-bribery compliance. These values are regularly reinforced to all TGP employees and key suppliers through targeted programmes and training.<\/p>\n\n

TGP Commercial Director Matt Jackson commented “To us, TRACEcertification was a natural step – it really complements our existing registrations to Authorised Economic Operator (AEO), ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 to provide a clear message to our clients that we understand what is important about their project and will deliver the project in a sustainable and ethical way.

Specialised project logistics does not always stop after the construction of an industrial project is complete.  Proving the point, Trans Global Projects office in Perth, Western Australia (WA) was awarded a contract by a major Australian mining company to provide day-to-day logistical support for the operation of its recently constructed project.<\/p>\n\n

The project itself is one of Australia’s largest iron ore mines.  It is located in the Pilbara region of WA and is a multi-billion dollar, 55 million tonne per annum production capacity plant.<\/p>\n\n

In the year since September 2015 when the support contract was awarded, hundreds of individual shipments have been managed by TGP Australia to the mine site from within the country and from overseas origins.  The remote site is, in fact, hundreds of kilometres from the nearest port and over a thousand kilometres from any major city.<\/p>\n\n

Notable shipments have been the movement of an 8.3 metre diameter bucketwheel weighing 20 tonnes shipped from China, as well as two over-dimensional feeders from within Australia.  The feeders each 25 metres long, 4.1metres wide and weighing 115 tonnes were transported over 1500 kilometres from a WA fabrication facility to the mine requiring specialised trailers booked months ahead, full traffic escorts and WA state highway authorisation.<\/p>\n\n

In addition to the movement of such over-dimensional cargoes, the mine operation has also required constant 24-hour logistical support, which has frequently included the handling of critically required cargo in plant shut-down and planned maintenance situations.<\/p>\n\n

Trans Global Projects Nigeria has been awarded the shipment of high-value data centre modules and decks for the second phase of West Africa’s largest and most advanced Tier III Data Centre.  The modules were shipped from the manufacturer’s facility in the UK to the job site in Lagos, Nigeria.<\/p>\n\n

The relatively fragile modules, each measuring 15.50m(L) x 4.50m(W) x 4.14m(H), required extreme care and attention during their door-to-door, multimodal delivery from Europe to West Africa.<\/p>\n\n

The award follows the successful shipment by TGP Nigeria in February 2013 of similar modules for the first phase of the construction project.<\/p>\n\n

TGP Nigeria provides a first-class logistics service to Nigerian and international clients, fully compliant with Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board terms. Through its Centre of Documentation Excellence, the company ensures that standardised import documents are managed closely to provide an efficient and compliant clearance process in to Nigeria, which is proven in saving clients’ time and money. <\/p>\n\n

Some of the most critical items for a major energy project in the Kurdistan region of Iraq are currently being shipped to one of the world’s largest unexplored onshore hydrocarbon basins. The project comprises an estimated 50,000 freight tonnes of equipment for the construction of a Central Processing Facility.<\/p>\n\n

Regional instability has led to a significant downturn in the number of similar schemes in the area, making the success of this project all the more vital. Despite these issues, the logistics supply chain has been particularly effective and free of delay.<\/p>\n\n

The cargo from worldwide origins is being transhipped via ports in Turkey, where it has to be temporarily cleared under a tax exemption scheme. This is being closely monitored by Trans Global Projects.<\/p>\n\n

The journey to Kurdistan, overseen by the Trans Global Projects offices in Erbil, Kurdistan, then continues by land, where trucking of oversized items has to be carefully planned and engineered as the site is in a mountainous region with narrow and potentially dangerous roads which are made all the more treacherous by extremes of weather.<\/p>\n\n

So far, the largest individual items transported over the 900km land route to the site were the control room buildings, that were each 25.6m x 5.3m x 4.25m (LWH) and weighed 64mt, however Trans Global Projects has previously moved items as wide as 5.80m and as high as 5.15m high along the same route.<\/p>\n\n

The project is expected to be complete by March 2016, with initial production anticipated at 30,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day once operations are under way.<\/p>\n\n

As part of its continuing commitment to meeting the highest industry standards, Trans Global Projects is following the current standards’ revisions with interest.<\/p>\n\n

The improvement of the standards – which are the international benchmarks for business quality, environmental and health and safety management – will suit the logistics company’s method of work, which already involves the use of an integrated management system. TGP’s Integrated Management System provides a single, coherent vision of the Context of the organisation, assesses threats to all its Objectives through a single risk assessment process and focusses actions against the identified Risks and Opportunities. The draft documents provide a perfect landscape for this approach.<\/p>\n\n

Trans Global Projects is registered to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 with Intertek, a UKAS-accredited certification body, and will be working with them to transition to the new revisions (including ISO 45001, which will replace OHSAS 18001) as soon as the final versions are published. However, as part of ongoing improvements a cross-reference to the Annex SL model, used for new standards, has already been incorporated into the company’s integrated management system.<\/p>\n\n

An efficient, effective and responsive system helps the company to deliver leading project logistics management as reliably and responsibly as possible.<\/p>\n\n

As well as being a useful way to demonstrate compliance, incorporating the new standards will also make it easier to strengthen the firm’s emerging business continuity management and information security management elements, ready for ISO 22301 and ISO 27001 registration.<\/p>\n\n
