Agility and Transcar awarded world’s largest freight contract with Qatar-Pearl GTL project
Agility Project Logistics (the new name for Transoceanic Shipping Company, Inc.), joined hands with Transcar Projects Ltd. to win the global shipping contract for two phases of the Pearl Gas to Liquids (GTL) in Ras Laffan, Qatar.
Agility Project Logistics is a specialized group within Agility, a leading global provider of integrated supply chain solutions. Transcar is one of Europe’s leading privately held project freight forwarders, managing general and project cargoes.
The Pearl GTL project – the world’s largest gas-to-liquid project – has been developed by Qatar Petroleum and Shell and will involve over 1 million freight tons of cargo lined up for its construction. The facility, once complete, will be equipped to produce 140,000 bpd of GTL products and approximately 120,000 bpd of condensate, liquefied petroleum gas and ethane.
The joint venture between competitors, with Agility Project Logistics and Transcar both devoting 18 months of planning, resulted in this successful win. Both companies cooperated closely to ensure all systems, procedures and team proposals scored highly in the evaluation process managed by the JGC Corporation and Kellogg Brown & Root, Inc. (KBR).
Announcing their win, Danny Rushbrooke, Managing Director Europe for Agility Project Logistics, and Dean Rossiter, Managing Director for Transcar, emphasized the importance of this historic win for both companies. Together, they look forward to working hand in hand, leveraging their joint capabilities to ensure the successful completion of this massive contract.
Elaborating on the project, Gregory Rusovich, President of Agility Project Logistics said: “It is a matter of great pride for us to have won the Pearl GTL global contract based in Qatar. Agility has over 20,000 employees across a network of 450 offices in 100 countries around the world. We are dedicated to offering customer-driven solutions to meet all their supply chain needs.
“Agility Project Logistics is a specialized extension of our global logistics offering, we provide comprehensive services for infrastructure projects of any scale, from start to finish. The Pearl GTL project gives us an opportunity to utilize our capabilities to their fullest extent and we are very excited to be a part of it.” Rusovich added.
