The international shipping of construction equipment requires expertise in handling large and heavy equipment. Whether you are shipping cranes, excavators, concrete mixers, earthmoving machines, motor graders or generators, every type of equipment needs a customized shipping solution.
Thanks to our years of experience, we have been able to set up an extensive network of experts in moving construction equipment around the world. We offer heavy transport from all points inland around the world to any loading port with the help of stacked trailers, double suspension trailers, swan space trailers, extendable stackers and flatbeds.
Together with our partners we transport used equipment from renowned industrial auctioneers. We can also collect directly from dealers all over the world and from manufacturers. We arrange all road permits and escorts where necessary. As soon as the equipment reaches the port, we arrange the unloading of the trailers and other shipments on board a variety of ship types.
The most common ships used for sending self-propelled and towed construction equipment and vehicles are RO / RO (roll on / roll off) vessels.
Some equipment is not suitable for RO / RO shipments. For static equipment and for destinations without RO / RO service there are alternative options, such as flat racks, breakbulk vessels or dismantling equipment for loading in containers.
The most cost-effective method of shipment is often achieved by disassembling the equipment and removing attachments for loading in standard containers. We can arrange dismantling and loading in containers, as well as re-assembly at the destination by qualified logistics service providers. Although there are additional costs for removing parts and then re-assembling them at the destination, these costs are usually compensated by larger savings on freight costs. In some cases savings can also be realized by sending parts instead of fully assembled equipment.
Some countries have special cleaning and inspection requirements for the import of used construction equipment such as Australia, New Zealand and certain European destinations. Our experts will guide you through the compliance process for AQIS (Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service) and similar processes for other countries.
Our experts are ready to assist you in all aspects of shipping machinery for marine construction, forestry, road construction, earthmoving, agriculture, mining and industrial equipment.
