Utah Truck Driver Burned by Sulfuric Acid

first_imgSALT LAKE CITY – Sue Turley and Raquel Sever received a phone call Tuesday they never expected. They learned their sister’s husband, Joshua Schade, had been in a terrible accident on the job. “We really don’t know exactly what happened at this point,” Sever said. Although the investigation is ongoing, they do know some of the details. Their brother-in-law was transporting sulfuric acid for Basin Western Trucking Company to Delta on Tuesday. When he went to unload it, something went horribly wrong. “It poured all the way down his body, from his head all the way down,” Turley said. They said first responders took him to a hospital for decontamination, then he was flown to University Hospital’s burn center. Schade has already undergone one skin graft surgery with more planned. “They keep reminding (my sister) he’s in very critical condition and they don’t want to give her the impression that he’s definitely going to make it home,” Turley said. Turley said Schade began the job only a few weeks ago and was excited because the schedule allowed him to spend more time with his family. Now they’re hoping the 29-year-old father will get that time. “We’re just trying to be hopeful and have faith that he’ll make it,” Sever said. “My sister has said so many times she doesn’t care what he looks like,” added Turley. “She doesn’t want him in pain, and she just wants to have her husband.” “Everyone is hoping and praying for Josh and his family at this time,” said Lloyd Dean, a spokesman for Western Basin Trucking Company. Dean said the company is conducting its own investigation to determine what happened. The family has set-up a gofundme account at www.gofundme.com/ntbbho and an account at America First Credit Union under the name Joshua Schade to help with some of the immediate expenses they’re facing.

Volga-Dnepr Group launches Engineering and Logistics Centre

first_imgILC will specialise in two major logistics areas that combine the primary and secondary products of the Group.The first area – ‘Charter +’ offers value added services to existing customers. This will include providing solutions such as autocranes at airports for loading/unloading large, heavy pieces of cargo, pick-up from warehouse and/or manufacturer locations and transport to the airport. Charter + will also arrange and supervise the design and production of special mechanical tooling necessary for specific cargo loading and transportation projects.

Dockwise delivers four cranes to GPA

first_imgDesigned by Finland headquartered Konecranes and assembled in Nantong, China, each crane can reach across vessels 22 teu wide, and can lift up to 65-tonnes to a height of 41.5 m above deck. Each unit weighs 1,388 tonnes and measures 132 m wide by 56.4 m tall. Heavy lift shipping specialist Dockwise delivered the cranes from China to the US gateway onboard its vessel Teal.The gateway now boasts 25 electric-powered container cranes – the most of any single terminal in the US, says terminal owner and operator Georgia Ports Authority (GPA).The arrival of the new super post-Panamax cranes fulfills an order placed by GPA with Konecranes during 2011. Port officials said the improvements to its crane fleet demonstrate GPA’s commitment to expand capacity, provide growth opportunities and to deliver greater flexibility to meet customer needs.”These new super post-Panamax cranes further enhance the cargo handling efficiency at the fourth-busiest container terminal in the nation,” said GPA executive director, Curtis Foltz.The GPA fleet now consists of nine post-Panamax cranes (accommodating the largest vessels capable of transiting the Panama Canal); and 16 super post-Panamax cranes, for vessels too large to transit Panama.”Combined with the largest single container terminal in North America and two Class I railroads on site, these cranes will make the customer experience even smoother,” Foltz addedwww.gaports.comwww.konecranes.comwww.dockwise.comlast_img read more

DB Schenker tests automated Kamag vehicle

first_imgManufactured by Kamag to transport standard freight containers at logistics yards, the Wiesel serves to analyse and evaluate automated processes in the logistics supply chain, says Kamag. The vehicle will only be used on company grounds and will not be deployed in public spaces.Erik Wirsing, vice president global innovation at DB Schenker, said: “Digitalisation improves efficiency throughout the entire transportation ecosystem. The use of driverless transportation systems is already an important component of our logistics processes. The evaluation of the test phase will show how we integrate the system into our overland transportation system.”In the long term, the aim is to maximise the cost-effectiveness of automated swap-body vehicles and to match the turnaround time of vehicles manned by drivers. In comparison with regular swap-body transporters, potential benefits include reduced personnel costs and longer maintenance intervals.The automated operation of the Wiesel also reduces pollutant emissions and noise.Bernd Schwengsbier, managing director at Kamag, part of the TII Group, said: “The pilot project allows us to analyse the potential of the technology in specific everyday logistics applications. This will help us to further develop and improve the technology.”TII Group, which includes four specialist businesses – Scheuerle, Nicolas, TIIGER and Kamag, is one of the leading manufacturers of heavy load transport solutions. This first pilot project into the use of automated vehicles in the logistics supply chain could be indicative the company’s future plans.www.tii-group.comwww.kamag.comwww.dbschenker.comlast_img read more
