To transfer the carriers, FESCO used its multi-purpose dry cargo vessel FESCO Paris equipped with cranes with a lifting capacity of up to 120 tonnes. The passage went through the Suez Canal and took 56 days.

Before loading, the carriers were placed on 16 supporting gantries specifically designed and manufactured for this transfer and necessary for placing and securing the carriers on the deck. The carriers were installed on the gantries using a mobile port crane Liebherr, loading and unloading was performed by a ship crane. Each relocated container weighed 67 tonnes and was 6.4 m wide, 9.8 m long and 12.2 m high.
