Project Cargo

Project cargo is cargo which cannot be shipped in a conventional manner, either because of its shape, size and weight which in some cases can be composed of complex components that must be disassembled, shipped and then re-assembled.

These vary from small building projects to complete industrial complexes requiring the co-ordination of shipments from several countries through to delivery on site.

Planned delivery of certain strategic items is ensured on time and a schedule is drawn up and agreed upon to ensure all parties are fully aware of time sensitive deliveries.
