LNG & RLNG Shipping & Logistics Services
LNG shipping and logistics refer to the processes involved in the transportation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) from production facilities to end-users. This includes the physical movement of LNG through various modes of transportation, as well as the associated supply chain management activities.
LNG shipping involves the transportation of LNG by sea, using specialized vessels known as LNG carriers. These ships are designed to withstand the low temperatures and high pressures required for LNG storage and transport, and are equipped with advanced safety systems to ensure the safe handling of LNG during transport.
LNG logistics involve the management of the supply chain, including the coordination of production, storage, and transportation of LNG. This includes the scheduling and tracking of LNG shipments, as well as the management of inventory and storage facilities.
Key aspects of LNG shipping and logistics include:
- Vessel chartering and scheduling
- Inland Logistics (Trucking, Railways, etc.).
- LNG ISO Tank containers handling
- Loading and unloading of LNG carriers
- Route optimization and navigation
- Regulatory compliance and safety management
- Inventory management
- Storage optimization
- Customer engagement and relationship management
Efficient and effective LNG shipping and logistics are critical to ensuring a reliable and affordable supply of LNG to end-users, particularly in regions where natural gas pipelines are not available or cost-effective. It is also important for minimizing greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts associated with LNG production and transport.
