Challenging is everyday
With our joint venture partner Fracht, Metro plan, organise and implement the protection and national and international transport of large, heavy, high value, and complex pieces of equipment.
Fracht/Metro project clients are in many verticals, with the majority in the oil and gas, wind-power and renewable, mining, engineering, and construction industries.
Our specialists conduct site and route surveys, to plan the lifting, securing and transportation by the selected mode, within the client’s budget, and on time.
Successful project movements are all about attention to detail, effective briefing and the proven audit and planning process that our Fracht colleagues have perfected.
In following the plan’s stipulations closely complex cargo operations can be effected relatively simply, eliminating risks, reducing costs and avoiding penalties.
For large infrastructure, relocation and construction projects, we can work with engineers in the design or pre-construction planning stage to outline and budget options for protection, handling and transportation to final destinations, which reduces risk, and supports the best outcome for the client’s eventual project shipment requirements.
Planning for success
Successful project movements depend on the careful planning, that audits the route, describes the method and allocates the resources that ensure the safe, secure handling and transport of your consignment.
We undertake pre-movement feasibility studies and site and route surveys to create transport manuals, that detail the equipment and methods used for the domestic and international packaging, handling and movement of outsize and special cargo.
