Project logistics for major moves anywhere including the remotest locations

Our project transport services offer reliable and cost-effective solutions that meet high standards of safety, service and quality.

Our project transport services offer reliable and cost-effective solutions that meet high standards of safety, service and quality.

 

We offer tailor-made solutions to move your heavy, oversized or complex cargo for your energy, industrial and capital infrastructure projects – even in the remotest locations.

 

We create end-to-end transport solutions for each phase of the lifecycle of your energy projects – whether it’s moving wind turbines or solar panels in the renewable energy sector, or supporting oil and gas projects from exploration to decommissioning.

The tallest object DSV has transported upright was a 35 meter transition piece for Sherrington Shoal wind farm off the east coast of England.

For large-scale industrial projects we can help you move entire plants, facilities and components between production sites located in all parts of the world. If you need to transport emergency or special cargo to areas of conflict or disaster, our global network supports governments as well as aid and relief organisations.

 

Turn your logistical challenges into solutions

 

Scale: Large-scale, industrial job sites require equally large machinery and equipment. DSV works closely with you to plan customised loading, unloading and delivery services to suit oversized needs.

 

The largest item DSV has shipped was a 13,000 cubic meter container ship unloader equivalent to 360 TEU's.

 

Geography: We help you reach remote drilling and production sites, and handle both offshore and inland deliveries, by providing every aspect of multimodal transport.

Flexibility: We are highly flexible in timing, routing and delivery mode, thus meeting key requirements of the oil and gas industry in particular.

Urgency: When you need to restart equipment and guarantee production, or reach remote areas quickly, our critical response teams are available 24/7.

Compliance and ethics: Moving unusual and oversized loads to remote locations generally requires authorisation and customs clearance at several stages of the journey. Our knowledge of applicable laws and regulations help ensure the smooth and efficient movement of cargo in line with quality, health, safety and environmental (QHSE) legislation.

End-to-end services

 

Planning and project management: Large-scale projects begin long before any major moves are carried out. DSV supports customers in the planning stage by giving detailed advice and pointing out potential transport issues based on local experience.

 

About 90% of the time spent on a complex project is taken up with planning.

 

Transport engineering: Installations are designed and manufactured with transport in mind. DSV’s in-house transport engineering experts support out-of-gauge and heavy-lift moves that require special equipment or even changes to existing infrastructure.

Route and site surveys: We conduct risk assessments and detailed route and site surveys along transport routes to account for limitations posed by infrastructure, climate, season or even the political landscape.

 

Marine and air charters: Global charter services are available to get out-of-gauge and heavy-lift loads to their destination. Services include the charter of specialised marine and river vessels, barges, tugs and supply boats, as well as aircraft and the Air Charter Network. We also provide port agency and husbandry services for oil and gas customers.

Origin and destination services: At origin, DSV’s turnkey project forwarding solutions include vendor and purchase order expediting, collection, marshalling, industrial packing, delivery to port or airport and export customs clearance. At destination, DSV provides first-hand information on import regulations and import customs clearance.
