How to transport your project cargo successfully

AMG Logistics

Transportation and logistical challenges are immensely larger when delivering over-dimensional or heavy-lift freight, whether it’s equipment heading to Ajapa oil fields or turbine components for Kanji dam because each case is unique.

The difficulty of delivering cumbersome freight as swiftly and cost-effectively as feasible necessitates collaborative partnerships, meticulous attention to detail, and continual communication across the supply chain.

Shippers and their supply chain partners must consider various elements from pre-planning through execution to guarantee that project cargo is delivered on time:

  • Cargo design: Transportation may influence how a product is made, such as whether it is delivered as a single unit or if it is built in numerous parts and assembled on-site. Before any equipment is bought or constructed, project cargo buyers can do transportation analysis and develop routings.

  • Mode improvement: Road, rail, air, ocean, and inland barge transit schedules and criteria are all different. Transportation experts with first-hand knowledge of the nation may advise on length, breadth, height, and weight constraints that may force the use of one form of transportation over another.

  • Public relations: Public safety and environmental concerns are frequently raised when project goods are transported on shared highways. Even the smallest suspicion that communities will be harmed is worth investigating. Open dialogue among all parties concerned can aid in the prevention of future public relations issues.

  • Change orders and delivery timelines: Unintended effects might result from any changes or delays in material procurement plans, manufacturing, or delivery. Changing sourcing regions, for example, might lengthen lead times and raise transportation expenses. Shippers and service providers must anticipate issues and include flexibility in the project cargo transportation.

  • Customs and regulations: Taxes and duties, as well as inspection and paperwork requirements, differ from nation to country. The cost consequences of sourcing components in different nations are determined by doing local market research.
