We have over 20 years of experience in the shipment of out sized and complex cargoes by sea and air from diverse sectors such as Sugar & Alcohol Industries, Oil & Gas, Automotive, Construction and Power & Energy Industries.
Many of our projects have involved multiple operations across more than one nation including sourcing and managing local lifting equipment and securing specific permits.
We are always happy to take on project cargo.
Project cargo includes freight that is voluminous, either by weight, size or quantity, or composed of complex components that must be disassembled, shipped and then re-assembled, e.g. Steam Boiler. The complex requirements that encompass project cargo execution require ‘out of the box’ thinking in order to create and implement effective solutions. Project cargo requires the specialized expertise such as logistics capabilities, precise timing, wide geographical knowledge, and global connections to coordinate project cargo movements from point of origin to destination.
From sugar & alcohol facilities, power generation plants, petrochemical and oil refineries, to steel mill construction projects labeled as heavy lift shipments, Comex Solutions utilizes its global network of dedicated project cargo specialists to get the job done, on time and within your budget. The global network consists of strategically placed project cargo departments that encompass the needed experience and capability to handle the great logistical challenges that are encountered when dealing within the project execution area.
