1- Due to the cargo over width and height at first sight they had to transport using 2 continuous low beds but they found that the road width was so tight for the option that wouldn’t work. The second option was to use a Modular trailer which was too expensive for 12 kms distance so it crossed their minds to use only 2 extendable low beds its length extensions was 25 meters each to carry 3 units each and to put extra lashing material with driving with the minimum speed for balance and safety.
2- Port of loading Adabiya Gates width was about 5 meters and their cargo width is 7.5 m so they had to use the Port Emergency gates and remove its steel side doors temporarily until gating in the trailers using fork lift and labors.
