Project Cargo Logistics

shutterstock_185364425Complex freight projects require a great deal of planning and attention to detail. Project components originating in different parts of the world must be coordinated to arrive at the project site simultaneously, despite varying means of transport, points of origin and transit times. Building safety buffers into shipping schedules must be balanced with destination storage and handling costs in order to ensure adherence to project schedules, while minimizing exposure to extra handling risks and storage costs. Heavy and oversized industrial freight must be analyzed and prepared for safe handling and optimal shipping configuration in terms of cost, risk management and schedule. We tie all the logistical elements together to make projects run seamlessly.
