39,000 kilometers: This is the overall distance travelled by 50 special trucks to transport various parts of machinery from Port Hedland, Australia, to the iron ore mine owned by BHP. The largest and heaviest parts represented the greatest challenge, since these had to be transported overnight. With blocked roads and a maximum speed of 40 kilometers per hour, it took three nights to reach the mine. In total, 90,000 tons of machinery were transported.
