Mining and industrial operations rely on heavy machinery for their success. With these projects taking place all over the world, it’s crucial that the vital equipment needed is available and delivered on time. But what are some of the considerations that need to be taken into account when organising shipping of oversized machinery?
Save time, money and stress by consulting the experts
Coordination is a key aspect of delivery goods on time. When the items being shipped weigh hundreds of tonnes, however, expertise in the process from start to finish is imperative.
At Freightplus, our pre-shipment services have every aspect covered, including:
Our team can handle everything, helping you avoid lengthy dismantling times, quarantine risks and the need to employ multiple companies at various points around the world. We at Freightplus offer comprehensive post- and pre-shipment services to meet the needs of every project.
Assembly and delivery to your doorstep
One shining example of our collective services is the sourcing of a 360-tonne barge, an attached 100-tonne crawler crane and two used tug boats for one of our valued Australian customers. The project required a number of elements to work in sync to be considered a success:
The challenges presented by the unique project meant that Freightplus needed to think outside the box. This meant coordinating with our partners to make use of a heavy-lift vessel, the careful piece-by-piece dismantling and full refurbishment of the machinery and organising an AQIS officer to be flown from Australia to conduct an offshore quarantine inspection.
Ultimately, the project was a success, with the Freightplus team delivering the machinery in a refurbished and work-ready state, in full and on time.
