Shipping heavy machinery overseas is a more complex process than shipping standard cargo, requiring careful planning and preparation. As the equipment will be high value and more difficult to handle, you will want to find a shipping partner that you can trust.
At Seaway Logistics, we have a proven track record for safe, reliable and effective heavy equipment shipping solutions. We have an established reputation for breakbulk services, and will use our years of experience to troubleshoot any problems that arise along the way.
Based in Hull, we are ideally placed for all routes to Eastern Europe and the Baltic states, as well as other port destinations around the world.
Our friendly and experienced team will work hard on your behalf to ensure that your cargo is shipped efficiently, safely and with the minimum of fuss to your chosen destination
Mining equipment is likely to be heavy, oversized and awkwardly shaped. The first step to finding a shipping solution that meets your requirements is to take accurate measurements of the dimensions and gross weight of the equipment. This will help us find the best solution for you.
If the equipment is self-propelled or towable (i.e. if it has wheels or tracks), then it can be boarded and unloaded with roll on/roll off method (Ro-Ro). We also provide lift on/lift off options, so can cover all your needs with ease.
At Seaway Logistics, our experienced and friendly team will be able to walk you through the administrative process for preparing cargo for overseas shipping. The first step is to provide us with the accurate dimensions and gross weight of all the equipment, together with its intended destination and date of travel.
You will then be advised which paperwork you need to have in place and may be asked for details about the make, model, year of manufacture and market value of the equipment.
We work closely with all our clients to identify the best solutions for shipping their cargo, assessing requirements for packaging, transport and shipment needs. All our services are entirely bespoke and tailored to suit individual requirements. If you’d like to find out more, get in touch with the team today to discuss worldwide freight shipping.
