Partner with Project Cargo Logistics Pros to Safely Ship Oversized, Sensitive Freight

We'll work with your budget and requirements to transport your bulky, heavy or unique items

What are some project cargo examples?

Project cargo is any freight that either doesn't fit in a standard shipping container or isn't suitable for container shipping. Cars, boats, construction equipment, locomotives, pre-built homes, turbines, and helicopter blades are just a few project cargo examples from AIT's shipment repertoire. Project cargo examples often include ocean break bulk, delicate, high-value, overweight or oversized freight.

AIT offers project cargo logistics services for air and sea freight as well as ground shipping, serving customers across a broad range of verticals every day, including the aerospace, government, automotive, and energy industries.

How does AIT's project cargo logistics process differ from standard freight?

Loading and unloading
While standard cargo unloading usually involves unloading a container or pallet, project cargo examples like overweight or oversized freight often require special equipment, like cranes or forklifts, to remove the crate from the vessel.

Transport logistics
Moving bulk, heavy and/or oversized freight requires special engineering and analysis to determine the most appropriate route and shipping conditions.

Extra security measures
For sensitive or delicate cargo, in-depth planning is often required to ensure the shipment's safety. For example, special arrangements might include extra padding, wrapping or stuffing, weight distribution analysis to prevent in-transit cargo shifting, or ventilation or temperature-control measures.
