Shipping and transportation for the solar energy industry involves careful handling of equipment and sometimes the movement of oversized cargo. Careful planning around transportation for oversized freight is needed for large-scale projects such as the establishment of a utility-scale solar power plant. To minimize costs, all the different components must arrive on schedule, demanding communication and coordination between several parties to make sure everything comes together on time and within budget. Other types of logistics involved in the solar energy industry include supply chain management. Many solar companies use third party logistics partners to warehouse solar equipment such as steel tracker bases and solar panels. They also manage the individual shipments to consumers or businesses in a more cost-effective and efficient manner than the solar energy companies themselves.
Whether you need a reliable shipping company to help manage a large solar power plant project, or you are a solar energy company that needs a safe and reliable shipping partner to handle all of your warehousing and deliveries, Global Shipping Services has the knowledge, experience and resources to exceed your standards.
