Heavy equipment shipping

Heavy equipment shipping

There are many industries across the UK which rely on the transportation, logistics and freight services for heavy equipment such as specialist machinery. Planning and implementing heavy equipment shipping requires technical handling skills to keep the machinery safe and secure through every stage of the shipping process.

Transporting large engineering machines requires lots of factors to be considered. The right loading equipment and vehicle will need to be chosen in order for the valuable assets to be loaded securely and efficiently. This will ensure that no time is wasted and that delivery times will be met.

Here at Relay our specialist transportation crews have a wealth of experience handling such machines and will have a full understanding of the requirements that are needed to carry out a smooth delivery assignment. They will choose the ideal method for heavy equipment transport based on your machines and talk you through each stage of the shipping process.

We also have a worldwide network of freight forwarding agents to deal with any international transport needs you might have. They are capable of responding to individual business requirements and our comprehensive trans-global logistics and freight forwarding packages are personalised for each customer. This allows the movement of machinery to take place with minimal stress and work for our clients.

If you have some heavy machinery which needs transporting, our crews would be happy to help you. Our heavy equipment shipping services covers both UK and overseas projects and always have your assets at the forefront of our minds.
