What is Project Logistics?

Project logistics is a specialized form of transportation to handle the heaviest and most complex cargo needs. Project management logistics can also apply to virtually any industry, but it’s especially prevalent in the machinery, manufacturing, oil and gas and mining industries. 

Such prevalence is attributed to the increased need for agile project logistics to handle unforeseen challenges and needs. 

For example, a major machinery manufacturer may need to ship an item weighing 400+ tons, and its dimensions may need to be revised with the traditional cargo vessels. Vessels may need to be outfitted with additional ballasts or equipment to stabilize the item, and traditional securement capabilities may need to be improved.

That’s why working with quality project logistics companies that can handle these unique nuances is crucial.
