Taking the weight for project logistics

Some cargoes refuse to fit into neat little packages for simple transportation. They’re too big, too heavy, too awkward, or simply too specialised to fit the norm. Since the early 1970s, GAC has been a leader in moving all types of project cargo from source to destination.

Integrated expertise for full service package

We apply GAC’s shipping, logistics and marine expertise to major project undertakings - primarily customers for the offshore, oil & gas, heavy industry and construction sectors, but we have also been called on to assist with heavy lift shipments for art galleries, brewing companies and even an underwater restaurant. Commitment, flexibility and experience are central to our approach to every project, whether it be a single shipment or the execution of a global EPC contract.

Our flexible project logistics services include:

  • Site survey and feasibility studies (routes, weather, political climate)
  • Computer aided loading plans
  • Full / part charter parties (air charters, time/ voyage charters)
  • Multi-modal transport (rail, tug & barge, heavy lift)
  • Special equipment transport (flat racks, open tops, platforms, tween deck solutions)
  • Freight negotiation (COA negotiation, long term rate validities)
  • Administrative support (customs clearance, trade documentation)
  • In-house flexible IT solutions and tracking and tracing

Our operations are supported by GAC Marine’s fleet of barges and landing craft which are ideally suited for transporting project cargo in hard-to-reach areas with infrastructure limitations. Additionally, we provide ballastable barges to receive cargo on direct delivery basis for on-carriage to final destination.

With GAC, you can be sure that your project cargo is in good hands with complete transparency. Thanks to global reach of our network, your shipment will be under our control and compliant with our Group’s strict HSSE, Quality and Compliance policies from start to finish. So whatever your project needs, from single domestic delivery to complex multi-shipments, let us do the heavy lifting for you.
