Complex as it is, project cargo does not fit into standard dimensions or weight restrictions, which is why it requires a specialist freight forwarder to manage the shipment. Project cargo often requires specialist moving, lifting, carrying equipment and the planning of the project is complex too, not only does it take a team of local experts, but also global associates with a hands-on attitude to ensure the cargo is handled responsibly. Beyond the normal freight forwarding shipping procedures many other factors must be taken into consideration, such as exceptional dimensions & weight, critical aspects, a need for specialized transit, risk factors, loading/unloading procedures, onboard arrangements and always a contingency plan.
Over the last 25 years Eurogate Logistics have built up a wealth of project shipping experience in the oil and gas, mining and telecoms industries.
