Abnormal Loads and Project Forwarding

Managing abnormal loads (wide loads, specialist heavy haulage) and providing project forwarding services has been at the core of Derwent Shipping & Logistics (DSL Global Freight) since its inception. Few companies have the combined experience and expertise that is necessary to successfully carry out the efficient and safe movement of out-of-gauge cargo. We also recognise that often products of this nature are of high value and therefore require the close project management that DSL Global Freight offers reducing project risk.

Over the years we have built up a global network of transport companies with a range of specialist vehicles, designed to safely carry products to any location, including challenging destinations. This provides a one-stop-shop for our customers, reducing their project management costs.

Our experience of having operated in major ports around the globe has provided a network of local partners providing breakbulk services and deep sea routes with live tracking available for customers. Other ports are available by inducement to offer added flexibility.

The DSL Global Freight team is able to offer a comprehensive domestic and international turnkey service and this can include the following;

  • Air, road, rail and sea options
