One size doesn’t fit all: special solutions for special cargo

Thinking outside the box: smart solutions for oversized cargo

We understand that not all cargo fits inside a standard container, and that special cargo requires special handling and care. With over 50 years of experience in shipping goods of all shapes and sizes, our project cargo team can create safe, secure and competitive logistics solutions for all types of oversized freight, from aircraft parts to heavy machinery, oil-well equipment and locomotives. Due to the specialist nature of project cargo, we consider each breakbulk and out-of-gauge shipment on a case-by-case basis, tailoring our solutions around your unique requirements to deliver your cargo to any address in the world.
Breakbulk Solutions

On board vessels, we store your cargo on a pre-prepared bed containing multiple flat racks, providing a safe working environment for stevedores and ensuring compliance with IMO CSS Code Annex 13 requirements. As part of our feasibility studies and preparation, we use 3D modelling to demonstrate handling stowage and lashing requirements. Our team also focuses on loss and claim prevention for very large and/or heavy cargo, ensuring a safe and smooth delivery.

Out of gauge cargo

If your cargo does not fit a standard container, we will carefully load and secure (lash) it onto a platform, single flat rack or open top unit.  Our experts will work with you to create a tailor-made solution for a safe and secure delivery.  We have access to specialised equipment and handling facilities such as container lift trailers, floating cranes and cargo securing solutions.

Our project cargo solutions go beyond shipping: we also offer door-to-door deliveries by road, rail and barge. 

Additional Local Solutions

In some countries, we offer additional solutions such as loading, lashing and securing cargo at your origin port or nearby depot. We can also arrange inland collection and deliveries using a variety of equipment, as well as police/inland transport notifications. Stevedoring, port lashing and port storage facilities can also be provided if required. Contact us to find out whether these options are available in your country or region.

Our experts help with the planning and execution of special loadings, ensuring maximum safety and security for each and every project.
