Transporting oversized cargo from the USA is difficult to organize without understanding the process and responsible representatives in the shipping country, along the way. There is only one way to deliver "oversized" from America in one piece and at an adequate price - to conclude a contract with a reliable carrier. No other option will justify the effort and the cost. Moreover, delivery delays and losses will be a direct threat.
What is "oversized" and why is it difficult to transport?
Professionals call oversized the "heavyweights", although weight isn’t always a key difference from anything that falls under the "standard". For maritime transport in the United States, oversized cargo is considered to have over 14 m in length, 3.4 m in width, 3.4 m in height, and 35 t in weight.
Delivery of heavy equipment is the highest pilotage in the field of transport logistics. To make the puzzle, the basic conditions for the transport of oversized goods must be met. People who are not involved in transportation have little understanding of what is involved, much less can guarantee that the requirements for safe transport are met. That is why it is important to trust transportation to those who have succeeded in this for many years and are responsible for the result.
There are examples of oversized goods below :

The purpose, the weight, the manufacturer are not the primary. All types of cargo have one thing in common: they cannot simply be loaded and transported. It means we need proper organization and proper delivery planning. That is what we do, defining the scale of the task and developing optimal solutions.
We are organizing:
storage in a warehouse before shipment;
loading and unloading of "oversized".
The slightest omission could cost the lives of people who are unlucky enough to be around.
A separate topic is the processing of transport documents by State law. It is necessary for the preparation and processing to be carried out by specialists, otherwise, the goods may not be missed, delayed, and subject to fines at Customs.
Shipping from the United States is organized in 315 ports, but only 19 of them handle international cargo. We work with major ports in Savannah, Los Angeles, New York. We have six warehouses in America, our handling equipment, an experienced and qualified team. All this simplifies the task, reduces the risks and costs of the client.
