The mining industry faces logistics challenges such as moving copper, silver, iron or other mined products from remote mining sites. They also face the challenge of requiring transport for heavy mining equipment to and from remote sites which adds expense and complications that some other industries don’t have to deal with. Transportation within the mining industry commonly involves managing shipping by rail, which can be costly and difficult without a relationship with rail companies. It’s also necessary to properly track rail cars with the product to ensure they aren’t sitting for long periods of time and to find the best cargo insurance to minimize the expensive risk of theft.
Working with a third-party logistics provider that focuses on industrial shipments, such as Global Shipping Services, can help companies save up to 12% on costs and manage cargo insurance and freight tracking. Multimodal transportation is often required to move mining equipment on and offsite as well as to ship the product out to customers from remote destinations. Global Shipping Services has over 15 years of experience shipping mining freight to and from remote destinations and handling heavy haul and project cargo through multimodal transport.
