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.

Our dedicated and experienced team at Portico leave no room for error. We can ensure professional terminal handling, storage and transportation of small, medium and large cargo at our modern facility, based at Portsmouth International Port.
