With our joint venture partner Fracht, Metro plan, organise and manage the protection, handling and global transportation of large, heavy, high value, and complex pieces of equipment.
Project movements are all about attention to detail, effective briefing and the proven audit and planning processes that our Fracht USA colleagues have perfected and are recognised as one, if not the, global experts in this specialised field.
Planning embraces every relevant element, including product characteristics and handling requirements, route audits and specialised lifting equipment, resources and timings.
While many elements make up effective project planning, they always depend on effective preparation, to deliver the optimum solutions, with the flexibility to adapt and overcome unforeseen challenges or obstacles. This is always on a bespoke and tailored basis usually for a unique one off movement of highly valuable cargo.
On Wednesday 31st March @ 0900 CDT/1500 BST Fracht USA are hosting a free webinar – Project Preparation & Adaptability – featuring four respected speakers, from power, maritime, engineering and 3PL, who between them have over 100 years of experience to share with attendees.
If you are involved – or interested – in project shipping, this webinar will inform, educate and prepare you for future challenges.
