The choice of transportation is tailored to the specific nature of your goods, taking into account your priorities, budget, and timeline to ensure an optimal shipping strategy.

Here are the transportation modes available for shipping your heavy-lift cargo:

Rail Freight For Heavy-lift Cargo

We move heavy-lift cargo by rail within the UAE and globally, providing tailored logistics that handle the complexity and technical intricacies of oversized shipments.  

Use specialized rail cars and cargo wagons such as well wagons, flat cars, and other specialized rolling stock designed to accommodate the unique dimensions and weight of heavy-lift items.

We utilize high load bearing air cargo equipment, such as heavy-duty cargo pallets and customized loading systems, to facilitate the secure transport of heavy items.

This suite comes with aviation regulatory compliance and permits management in the UAE and worldwide, including overflight and landing permissions for unusually heavy or oversized cargoes.

While traditionally air freight is not the first thought for heavy or oversized cargo due to aircraft capacity limitations, moving heavy items by air is feasible but comes with specific challenges that must be meticulously planned for, such as ensuring access to suitable aircraft and considering the cost implications. The feasibility also depends on the dimensions and weight of the cargo, airport runway length, and handling capabilities at both the origin and destination.
