Special projects, heavy and outsized freight

Project Cargo and Project Forwarding Services by MIES International

MIES International has provided logistics for special projects for over 40 years. Many of our competitors, even the larger global freight forwarders, cannot claim to retain in-house project cargo experts.

Our Special Projects division is the part of our organisation that is geared up to handle demanding and complex freight requirements.

Certain types of cargo can present unique challenges and require extreme care and attention to the shipping and handling mechanics. There could be Export Licence issues or the need to solve VAT problems in another country. Our friendly and professional staff are there to help resolve your problems.

Over-sized, Over-width, Over-height or Over-weight, MIES go Over-board to find the best solution for moving your project cargo.

We try our best to make what seems the impossible, possible.

Special projects can be some of the most challenging undertakings in our industry. Our project cargo team will find the most creative and innovative ways to move heavy, outsized and unusual cargo. Whether using conventional heavy lift methods or safely using infrastructure designed for standard shipments, the most cost effective and efficient processes are always found.

We provide clients with a range of transport plans and options, saving time and/or cost where required. This ensures each consignment is delivered to exactly the right place, at the right time, and importantly at the right price. Our project managers will assist the client in assessing the correct balance of these elements, helping to evaluate the risks so that the right solution for their specific project is executed to the highest standard technical and procedural standards.
