Over a three-year period, UTC Overseas Inc.’s Project Division was a lead provider of project cargo logistics services for ThysssenKrupp’s $5-billion steelmaking and processing facility at Calvert, Alabama. The carbon flat steel and stainless steel production facilities are one of the largest foreign investments in U.S. history.

The assignment, one of the largest ever undertaken by UTC, involved the transport of plant production and processing modules sourced from Europe and Asia to a specially prepared beach-landing site on Alabama’s Tombigbee River.

Everything about the project was massive:
180,000 freight tons including housings and mill stands, turbines and generators, roughing and finishing lines
Dozens of full- and partial-vessel charters
Transfers and transport of up to 80 individual heavy-lift units ranging from 50-225 metric tons
Deliveries by ship, barge and truck
Based on the quality of our work, UTC was also assigned the bulk of customs clearances for plant components as the overall project progressed. Although plan changes and updates were inevitable and continuous for a project of this size and duration, UTC handled them all professionally, completing their work on time and on budget.

The ThyssenKrupp assignment is one of our company’s proudest achievements, and perhaps the finest example we can offer of both our overall project cargo capabilities and our specific skills in moving a wide range of full or partial manufacturing and processing facilities, both new and used. Whether part of a production line or an entire factory or mill, UTC has the resources to help you get it where you need it, on time and on budget, and the skills to help your team design cost and time savings into the entire planning process.
