What is Project Cargo?

Project cargo describes the domestic or international transportation of large, heavy-duty, high value, or complex pieces of equipment. The materials included in project cargo can be globally sourced, or from one specific location. Project cargo requires attention to detail in order to remain within projected timelines, budgets, and safety restrictions during the transit of goods.

Project cargo is the one of most complex kinds of transportation in the logistics industry. There are obstacles like time constraints, tight delivery dates, and safety requirements, and thus they require the most detailed shipment plans. To complete a project cargo shipment, oversized goods often have to travel by land, sea, or air to their final destination and may include special accommodations like road survey or police escort.
