Project cargo

What is project cargo?

Project cargo broadly refers to the global transportation or big, bulky, heavy and high-value equipment and parts intended for a given project. It can include shipments of different components that require disassembly for purposes of shipment and reassembly following a delivery.

This type of cargo needs special transportation modes hence its name – “project cargo” or sometimes “heavy lift cargo”.

Furthermore, this sort of cargo tends to have a specific time-frame or specified delivery date that makes these shipments some of the most complex and detailed projects in the entire logistics industry.
