Wind and solar power projects ultimately benefit consumers and the environment, but renewable energy shipping logistics and costs can present an initial challenge to establishing new solar and wind farms. Large and heavy components—especially the blades, towers, and nacelles for wind turbines—require special permitting and may be limited to certain routes due to state trucking regulations. Certain components, such as photovoltaic (PV) panels, can be damaged in transit if not properly packaged and shipped.
In addition to the physical challenges of renewable energy equipment transportation, communication can all too easily become an obstacle. Equipment suppliers, project managers, freight forwarders, and transportation authorities must all work together to ensure that components arrive on schedule and that shipping costs remain within the project budget. Breakdowns in communication can lead to costly errors or delays in shipping.
Global Shipping Services can alleviate shipping and communication concerns by handling your alternative energy transport project from beginning to end. As a freight forwarding company that works with an extensive global shipping network, we can arrange to move wind and solar equipment by land, air, sea, or a combination of transportation modes.
