SPECIALIST PLANT & EQUIPMENT
Our EUROPEAN services are ideally suited to the shipment of larger items of plant, equipment and machinery, as these can be collected and delivered on the same vehicle without transhipment en route, thus avoiding handling and delay.
We have available a wide range of transport equipment including tautliners, flatbeds, low-loaders, box vans, mega trailers, road-trains and inter-modal units. Vehicles with on-board tail-lifts, cranes and forklifts are also available, either for international movement or local collection & delivery, for those situations where suitable handling equipment is not available at the collection or delivery point.
We and our European and Overseas partners have considerable experience of dealing with Out of Gauge (Wide, High and Heavy) cargo and can provide assessment, coordination and management of the requirements for projects of all sizes.
For larger items of equipment moving to or from EUROPEAN or OVERSEAS locations, we can propose shipment by specialised ocean and air freight systems using equipment such as Flat Rack and Open Top containers or Break-bulk and Ro-Ro vessels, and can deal with local collection or delivery requirements, including transhipment, craneage and intermediary warehousing. As members of the World Cargo Alliance – a global consortium of more than 1000 independent shipping agents – we have local representatives in almost every country in the world. Our overseas agents can deal with foreign suppliers and buyers and can provide a comprehensive management service for single, large items of cargo or complete project requirements, for both export and import contracts.
Over recent years we have been involved in dealing with a wide range of interesting and unusual consignments including shipping equipment overland to Abu Dhabi, delivering a planetarium to a super yacht, drainage equipment for the Sultan of Brunei’s polo pitch, simulators for a national industry association, hotel equipment to the Arctic Circle and horticultural equipment to a château in Antibes to make a lawn for a certain well-known Russian oligarch!
Please feel free to contact us to ask about transport and shipping requirements for your larger items of cargo and we will respond quickly with our recommendations and proposals.
