Project cargo is the term used for the national or international transportation of cargo that is either large, heavy, high value, or very complex to transport. Project cargo is either too big, heavy or complex to fit into a standard 20 or 40 ft container. Subsequently, it has to be shipped in specialised transport forms, for instance in a specific chartered ship or truck.
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, and many other industries are heavily involved in this type of project cargo transportation.
Project cargo can consist of a single or multiple piece of equipment and can both cover a wide range of cargo value and freight volume. These pieces of equipment are transported to either a single or multiple destination over a period of time, and can be moved by air, sea, or land – sometimes involving multiple transport options such as trucks, rail, cranes, ships, barges and/or planes.

There is a huge amount of planning, coordination required in every project, and the extensive experience and expertise of the Modpack Group is invaluable to companies requiring project cargo.
