What is Project Cargo?

Sometimes, cargo is too big or bulky to fit into a standard shipping container. This type of cargo is known as project cargo. It is loaded individually onto a vessel rather than transferred onto a ship in a container. Project freight forwarding deals with heavyweight stuff, such as bulky, heavy, awkward objects, or pieces of machinery that won’t cooperate with usual shipping methods.

Some examples of project cargo could be:

  • Agricultural equipment, including tractors, bulldozers, and excavators.
  • Large vehicles, campervans, motor homes, and buses.
  • Aircraft such as small planes and helicopters.
  • Watercraft, including yachts and sailing boats.
  • Specialised factory equipment.
  • Motorised vehicles, including lorries, motorbikes, tractors, and cranes.
  • Trailerable cargo such as boats, caravans, motorhomes, and heavy plant equipment that runs on tracks.
  • Large, tall, and heavy static cargo that can be placed on MAFI or roll trailers.
  • Larger boats
  • Small aircraft
  • Out-of-gauge cargo
  • Heavy machinery
  • Created oversized cargo
  • High and Heavy machinery
  • Non-running vehicles
  • Mining equipment
  • Wind turbines
  • Oil and gas equipment

Frequently asked questions

The first step of project cargo shipping is touching base with the Jacanna team. After that, we’ll schedule a consultation session with you to fully comprehend the extent of your project. During this session, we’ll ask you to give us details about your cargo, such as its size, weight, and any specific requirements at the origin or destination. If needed, we may also ask you to provide us with pictures or diagrams of your cargo.

Transporting project cargo is tricky, requiring far more moving parts to complete the delivery. We can’t accurately assess the entire cost until we fully understand what you are looking to transport.

That’s why our process begins with an in-depth consultation where we can get an idea of what it will take to deliver your freight. From there, we will provide a full quote on the expected costs.

Project cargo refers to the transportation of large, heavy, or intricate pieces of equipment that cannot fit in a standard-sized shipping container and require a special approach to transportation.
