For heavier items of cargo, there simply is no other option than to opt for shipping. Things like vehicles, industrial machinery, airplane equipment, military supplies and oil and gas instruments, all need to be transported.

Heavy Lift Classification
There are countless things which could be included within the classification of a heavy lift. But instead of it being based off of the type of load, it is specified with a list of criteria. It must be an indivisible load, weighing at least over one ton. However, this weight could extend right the way up to exceeding 1000 tons. And, typically, any heavy lift cargo is going to exceed 100 meters, in either width and height, or both.
Local and Regional Transport
