Industrial Solutions

Industrial Scale Projects Require Industrial Scale Solutions
Breakbulk Heavy Lift and Project Cargo
All Breakbulk (BB) or Heavy-Lift (HL) shipments use a multimodal transport solution with a combination of land, sea and air using Breakbulk, RORO and/or Container vessels, Barges, Railroads, Trucks and Aircraft. Virtually all Project Cargo shipments are considered Out of Gauge (OOG); therefore, we will analyze your options for transport of the cargo depending on the various sizes and weights of each piece. At AEL, safety always comes first. In Project Cargo shipments, safety is a critical factor to ensure a smooth end-to-end solution is met for the client and all parties involved go home safely.
We have relationships with worldwide Breakbulk, RORO and Container carriers and offer full or partial charters, liner Breakbulk. AEL provides project planning and support, site surveys and cargo analysis and job-site delivery.
