Project Logistics

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.

We have handled project cargoes for customers in the offshore, oil & gas, heavy industry and construction sectors, as well as heavy lift shipments for art galleries, brewing companies and even an underwater restaurant.

In India, project cargo is always on the move to meet the needs of both the public and private industries. GAC India specialises in turnkey solutions that minimise costs and optimise resources. We have more than 35 years of experience in handling break bulk and project cargoes, with established contacts with project vessel and bulk owners. We ensure strict quality and HSSE compliance throughout the project life.

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

Integrated expertise for a full-service package

GAC India’s integrated shipping, logistics and marine expertise has been utilised for the handling of steel beams and pipes, bunk houses, power equipment, speed boats as well as engineering goods comprising transformers, boilers, tanks, reactors and cranes. 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.

With GAC India, 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.
