During the 1960’s a revolution occurred in the cargo industry with the introduction of standard size cargo Containers. This innovation radically changed the way cargo is handled. Customers who had previously shipped Cargo “loose” in the hold of vessels now had a way to protect their merchandise from exposure to the elements and increase the security of their cargo during transit.
Whilst this innovation was embraced by steamship lines with the introduction of modular container vessels that decreased vessel loading times there was one drawback.
What do you do if your cargo is bigger than a container?
This is where your logistics provider comes in.
Total Cargo Logistics’ expertise in handling over dimensional cargo has expanded over the past years and now with many vessels sailing packed to capacity with containers, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find steamship lines that will even tender a quote on an oversize piece of cargo let alone give you a booking.
