Projects FPS repatriates construction project

Projects FPS has successfully handled the re-export to India of over 90 TEU of plant and equipment which was used
in the construction of a major housing complex in Sri Lanka.

The project movement included two tower cranes, two large diesel generators, concrete shuttering and structural
steel, along with miscellaneous other items of plant used in the building of the Sinhapura Housing project, which
cost over RS.150 million. The equipment was being returned to its owner’s base in Chennai, India.

FPS handled the loading, lashing, overland transportation from the construction site to the port of Colombo, and all
aspects of forwarding to destination. Due to their size, some items were moved on low loaders over the congested
and narrow 15km route to the docks.

Among FPS’ many duties was arranging the de-registration of a number of road vehicles being re-exported; dutyfree
certificates were also provided to avoid the unnecessary payment of import duties on repatriated equipment, on
arrival back in India.

The project cargo was shipped to Chennai in a total of 65 containers and flat racks on five sailings of the 16,000
tonne boxship MS Coromandel, and the larger (24,500 tonne) boxship Tiger Bridge, over a period of four weeks.
