Jardine Logistics Services will use roll-on/roll-off barges to move airport support equipment from Kai Tak to the new airport at Chek Lap Kok. JLS airport relocation manager Rick Atkinson said the company, during its recent test run, had transported more than 230 pieces of Jardine Air Terminal Services' airport support services by barge to Chek Lap Kok. The total loading, sailing and unloading time took six hours. On the nights of July 5 and 6, nearly 600 tractors, passenger steps, dollies, conveyor belts, loaders and other equipment will be transported by barges to the new airport. 'We save a lot of time using ro-ro barges because we don't have to crane and lash the equipment as we would using trucks,' Mr Atkinson said. Equipment could go into service as soon as it arrived.
