Project Freight, not for the faint-hearted

Project Freight refers to the movement of any out of gauge, oversized or abnormal freight. This can be in the form of a single large or heavy item or a turnkey project with a mix of breakbulk, containers and oversized goods.

Chris Mulder, Project Freight Manager at Turners Shipping says that this area of the industry is the most interesting and daunting operations in logistics.

“It is not for the faint-hearted and it is the one area where the age-old saying the ‘a little knowledge is worse than no knowledge at all’ really does hold true.

Chris and his team bring decades of experience to every project they tackle.

This stands them in good stead as much of the work in project freight is time sensitive and solutions to snags need to be found quickly and efficiently.
