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.
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.
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.
