Projects & Heavy Lift

Nothing is too heavy to lift. Everything is doable. Our experience says so.

We don't take your heavy-lift cargo & projects lightly

We take action

Heavy-lift to us means taking the weight off your shoulders by delivering your heavy project on time, on budget, and with the least amount of risk possible.

Anywhere in the world.

Whether your cargo is hard to access or deliver, out of gauge, or a heavy lift, our field experts and in-house engineers are dedicated to providing the project logistics that will exactly meet your needs. 

From single, over-dimensional transports to multi-year, multi-origin complete projects, our project professionals have the local knowledge, contacts, and experience to deliver your total project logistics solutions worldwide.

We serve many different industries and are ready to help you, too:

Renewable energy, on- & offshore

Refining/Oil & Gas

International turn-key projects

Power plants

Mining and manufacturing industry

Steel/raw materials/breakbulk

Capital equipment

Balance of Plant (BOP)

Many others

Count on the right equipment and facilities

Getting it just right is our service

Trucks, cranes, barges, tugboats, self-propelled vehicles, RO/RO etc. – whatever specialty equipment is required to get your breakbulk cargo to the right place at the right time, we take care of commissioning, installation, site planning and final delivery of your heavy lift project.

And if you need warehousing, laydown yards/interim to long-term storage, maintenance of materials, loadings and stuffings, it’s part of our uncompromising offer to you.

Our IOSH & HSE & AEO certified experts will ensure that the site work, including offloading and final positioning, is carried out according to local rules and regulations.

You can safely leave your odd-size materials and parts with us.

All over the world is our playground. Nothing is too heavy. Everything is doable. You are welcome to test us.

From and to: part of the solution

Never the problem

To the top of a high-plateau basin, via a shallow waterway on a river barge, or pickup in a hard-to-reach place – missing infrastructure or challenging circumstances don’t stop us.

There’s never a straight line between A and B.

That is why our project experts are creative-minded and think outside the box. From pre-contract and planning support to project closure assistance, we are committed to customising the heavy project transport solution specifically to your needs.

All the way.

Don’t take our word for it

3 essential features you should consider about us before we team up

Firstly - how would you like to partner with someone who shares uncomfortable truths to keep momentum rather than cover it up in pleasantries or postpone the inevitable?
That’s us.

Secondly - our command lines are short because we value quick and accurate communication with you to allow for flexibility in the face of changes or circumstances.

Last but not least, the same applies to economic or environmental trends pointing to new markets for large-scale project transport – we call you before you call us.

In addition, and in close collaboration with our Industrial Project experts, we perform route and port surveys, stowage plans and varied chartering requirements as part of our planning and preparation, including customs brokerage, export declarations and permits and much more.

Does it make you at ease knowing this?

Then let us take the weight off your shoulders - we’ve got your heavy-lift project.

We charter the space you need

Sometimes it takes a vessel or a barge, and others an aircraft. Leave it to us to identify which type of transport and size best meets your project transport’s specific needs.

Full, half, or part charter - as your experienced end-to-end project experts, we’ll charter just the space you need.

Expect uniform workflows

Wherever we collaborate

Our procedures and systems are aligned with the required ISO standards to ensure an optimum workflow and a consistent experience of quality and handling wherever in the world we work together.

We hold below ISO certifications:

◾  ISO 9001

◾  ISO 14001

◾  ISO 45001

Committed to the global green transition

As part of the transport and logistics sector, we see it as our shared responsibility to limit global warming by accelerating our ESG performance and reducing CO2 supply chain emissions.
