With over 40 years of oversized cargo transportation experience, our teams have the know-how and equipment to deliver their freight safely.
What is meant by oversized cargo?
Oversized loads are loads that are too big for our standard 20 ft and 40 ft containers or the 40 ft high cube container. Instead, this cargo is transported on a platform, a flat-rack container or in an open-top container.
The transport of oversized loads with MSC
The transport service for oversized cargoes is integrated with us company-wide. So you receive competent advice and can easily make bookings. Each of our trading service teams is characterized by local expertise and experience in transporting oversized cargo on their trade routes. Our customers can always work with their familiar MSC team and be sure that their cargo is in good hands.
What is meant by mass-produced goods?
Bulk cargo (also known as project cargo) is a cargo that is too big for a single flat-rack container or platform. Typically, batch items are loaded onto multiple flat-rack containers, loaded onto the deck of a ship, and then secured for transport.
The transport of general cargo with MSC
Our staff specializing in the transport of general cargo will gladly assist you with all bookings of this kind. Since the transport of general cargo requires special equipment and expertise, this service depends heavily on the respective port capacities and timetables.
