Heavy and Over-dimensioned cargo

Photos of companies loading and unloading heavy items consistently impress viewers. Our project logistics experts move consignments weighing several hundred tonnes between different modes of transport, to storage areas or the components’ final point of use, depending on the purchase order.

Why Rhenus for your Heavy Lift Transports

Why Rhenus for your Heavy Lift Transports

Project logistics within Rhenus Malaysia draws up tailor-made project logistics chains to accommodate your requirements. The major challenges not only involve transporting items with abnormal dimensions and weights, providing assembly and intermediate storage space and organising the supply chain, but also handling the goods in such a way that no damage occurs. The many years of experience that our employees have in this field of work and the capacity available within Rhenus help us meet these standards.

Our services

Chartered and scheduled ocean freight services

We maintain close contacts with international shipping companies thanks to our many years of experience. Because the Rhenus Group transports enormous volumes of goods by sea, we are able to make use of good shipping rates with operators of scheduled maritime services and match them exactly to your requirements. Our network not only includes the well-known major shipping companies, but also smaller shipping companies with specialised vessels for unusually heavy goods. This enables us to combine high quality with fair prices.

We also have great expertise in the field of chartering sea freight services. You can either book the complete hold on board a vessel or just part of it. We do not leave you hanging when it comes to planning the proper stowage for your heavy goods, either. The skilled employees in our technology department, including trained shipbuilding engineers, can provide all-round advice and support. 

Shipments with excess dimensions or weight

One major focus of our portfolio is shipping goods with excess dimensions or extreme weight. Starting with the planning work for your consignment, moving on to obtaining the permits from the road traffic authorities and even completing the project, we remain very firmly in control of the situation. This means that there is one contact partner and total transparency for you. We work with qualified partners to make available the necessary equipment when organising consignments with excess dimensions or high weight. This provides you with a major benefit: We are very flexible when selecting the right partner and its types and combinations of vehicles – which helps us reduce the costs for our customers.

Ensuring safe transport of your goods

Moisture, heat, cold or height: Goods in transit on board are sometimes subject to very intense stresses and strains, depending on the transport route and even the time of year. The freight is also exposed to tough conditions when it is moved from one mode of transport to another. It is necessary to pack many items to withstand the weather and impacts because of possible vibrations or fluctuations in temperature or climatic changes. We can handle the packaging of your heavy-duty goods in line with HPE packaging standards. This is particularly true of bulky parts with large dimensions, which do not fit in standardised containers. This enables us to provide high-quality, perfect packaging to meet your requirements and protect your freight.

One contact for all queries

With Rhenus, you receive an assigned contact partner for all your shipments so you don’t have to worry about whom to be in touch with. This also allows us to know and understand your business and offer consistent and effective solutions.
