Project cargo is national or international transportation of cargo that is either large, heavy, high value, or very complex to transport. It refers to items being too big, heavy or complex to fit into a standard 20 ft or 40 ft container. Subsequently, it is shipped in specialised transport forms. For instance in a specific chartered ship or truck.
We supply project cargo services worldwide, including throughout the UK, Europe, USA, Canada and Mexico. As the process of globalization increases, the consequential demand for large infrastructure projects requiring project cargo handling increases worldwide. Many industry sectors such as engineering, construction, oil and gas, mining, wind power, refineries, power supplies, also many other industries are heavily involved in this type of transportation.
Project cargo can cover a wide range of value and freight volume, in addition it can consist of a single or multiple piece of equipment. The equipment is transported to either a single or multiple destination over a period of time. Additionally, cargo is moved by air, sea, or land – sometimes involving multiple transport options such as trucks, rail, ships, cranes, barges and/or planes.
