We’ve spent 25 years building a project freight forwarding supply chain that’s second to none. Learning from those experiences, we can provide the joined-up services you need to move mission-critical assets safely and securely, from any point of origin to a scheduled destination.

Logistically, we know how to make the right call. We have an extensive inventory of heavy lift equipment, which means we’re always able to respond quickly – providing freight forwarding solutions that will dovetail neatly with your well-organised project plans.

Strategically, we know who to call. We have a global consortium of specialist freight forwarding partners and contacts – in all the right places – to ensure the smoothest transit for every load, by land and by sea.


Our teams collaborate with yours to produce an end-to-end plan for all aspects of specialist freight forwarding. Joined-up processes, comprehensive project plans. Talk to us for:

Whatever you need to move, wherever it comes from – your project will be more efficient (and more likely to come in on time, on budget), if you’re working with a specialist freight forwarder who can handle every phase of the plan.

Permits. Route-mapping. Port processes – not just loading and unloading with specialist cranes and heavy-lift equipment, but detailed document control and Customs declarations, port duties, and systems’ entries. Detailed plans – niche asset management if necessary, created in collaboration with your own project teams – and the ability to handle secure fastenings, safety management, plus all aspects of local scheduling and route design.

For all specialist freight forwarding needs, we believe our combination of expertise and equipment is what you’re looking for – one point of contact in every phase of the project, and one over-riding ambition: safe delivery of your assets, on budget and on time.
