If you have complicated or heavy equipment to transport, Global Shipping will rise to the challenge. Our Project Department employees have more than twenty years of experience handling project cargo but still maintain their youthful and eager attitudes. We thrive under pressure and have handled many high-value, transportation projects on tight deadlines.
Whether you need a turnkey services provider who will supervise your project from start to finish or a partner who will manage one challenging segment of your transportation project, Global Shipping can help.
Global Shipping specializes in the shipping and handling of oversized or irregularly shaped cargo. Our expert team has the experience and tools to transport your most challenging cargo, even when it's too large to fit within a standard shipping container's length, width or height. Worrying about the safety and on time delivery of your cargo will be the last thing on your mind with our out of gauge shipping solutions.
When you have large items that can’t be broken down into smaller, lighter-weight segments, Global Shipping will come up with a transport solution. We even have experience moving products that are too heavy to transport on roads. Whether your cargo requires flatbed trucks, special volume cargo aircrafts, or even inland barges, we’ve got you covered.
Due to their large size or weight, some goods need to be loaded onto a cargo ship or aircraft individually rather than grouped in shipping containers. This obviously makes loading and unloading the equipment more labor-intensive and potentially more costly. However, we can come up with an efficient and cost-effective break bulk shipping method. We can help you determine when this is a better choice than disassembling, packaging, and reassembling your cargo when it reaches its destination.
When necessary, we will load your cargo into flat rack or open top containers. In some cases, we may shrink-wrap the cargo or add an additional layer of protection so that it reaches its destination with no damaged or missing parts.
Heavy equipment projects sometimes require cranes or pulley systems to lift the cargo, and Global Shipping can source the equipment necessary to safely raise and lower large items from one surface to another.
If you need to transport your cargo internationally, you can count on us to work out the logistics, including the customs clearance requirements, and to get your heavy haul products to their destination on time.
Through our strong professional relationships with major airlines and shipping lines, Global Shipping is able to get your project cargo where it needs to go using whatever method of transportation necessary.
Through our years of experience in the heavy transport industry, we have encountered and overcome many unique challenges. One client needed us to transport natural gas compressors and coolers from a remote part of south Texas to Mumbai, India on a tight deadline. We worked with local partners to lift the cargo using oilfield winches, allowing us to significantly reduce the time it would have taken to bring in cranes. After moving the coolers and compressors to the Port of Houston on transport trailers, we carefully shrink-wrapped the cargo to protect it on its ocean voyage. The cargo reached its final destination four days after we first picked it up in Sweeny, Texas.
Another client tasked us with transporting military helicopters from Jordan to Alabama in just 24 days. Because the helicopters were so high-value, we didn’t want to leave them sitting in the port for any longer than necessary, so we sourced a roll-on roll-off ship and outfitted the helicopters with special wheels and tow bars to load them. Due to inclement weather, we ultimately had to reroute the ship from Jacksonville, Florida to Beaumont, Texas, where we brought in trucks to move the helicopters to Alabama. Despite the obstacles we encountered, we reached the principal three days before the deadline.
