Project Logistics

We’ve been behind the scenes — delivering freight, providing camp modules, flying charters of oversized equipment — or sometimes out in front, building bridges and roads, paving airstrips or hauling ore from a remote mine location to a ship waiting dockside.

Common Questions

Project cargo is a term used to broadly describe the national or international transportation of large, heavy, high-value, or complex pieces of equipment. The materials can be sourced globally, or from one location. Projects always have start and finish dates and require attention to detail to remain within projected timelines, budgets and safety restrictions. Projects often use multiple modes of transportation including air, land and sea. The most common industries are oil and gas, mining, construction and military and defense.

First and foremost, get your partner involved in the project as early as possible. They can be a valuable asset to help ensure your project moves as planned, on-time and on budget. Additionally, here are a few things to look for:

  • Do they offer multi-modal transportation options, including air and sea charters if needed?
  • Do they have experience and knowledge in your industry?
  • What type of projects have they been involved in?
  • Do they have the equipment needed to move your materials such as heavy haul and oversized cargo?
  • Do they have the ability to source materials and store until needed?
  • Can they provide customs clearance services if needed?
  • Do they offer a single point of contact for pricing, communication and operations?
  • What is their Plan B or backup scenarios?
  • What types of communications do they provide, such as tracking, mobile apps, etc.?

Choosing the right transportation and logistics partner is critical to the success of your project.

A single point of contact provides a much clearer understanding of the full scope of the project. This individual has typically been involved in the project from day one and understands everything that’s happened leading up to the current project status.  Project contacts are involved with pricing, communication and all operations. They typically have a team supporting them but they are the primary contact.
