The project cargo logistics service – the national or international transportation of large, heavy, high value, or complex pieces of equipment, has emerged as the boon for production country. With the benefit of cost, manpower and time, this service and the companies that provide them are in high demand across the globe. Considering the business opportunity, numerous logistic companies have come-up with the project to support customers and help them reducing the overall cost of logistics when handled by self. While numerous companies deliver ready-made solutions, many of them lack the technical knowledge to offer competent business support. Standing apart from other logistic service providers, Dubai-based Fleet Line Shipping Services supplements its offerings with a wide range of shipping and cargo related services assuring excellent end-to-end logistics solutions to its customers.

Market Leader in UAE for OOG Cargo
Cargos that exceed the internal
dimension of a standard container are considered as out of gauge (OOG) cargo. Such cargo can still be loaded onto container ships by using special equipments like Flat Rack, and Open Top containers but need to be secured by providing seaworthy lashing, in addition to using special handling devices (spreader bars, slings & wires and so forth) for the lifting and stowage operations. Due to lack of regular break-bulk liner services, container ships are taking place of conventional break-bulk cargo, as most of them are comfortable to carry the cargo weighing up to 100 tons. Empty Flat Rack containers are placed on board followed by loading the cargo through shore crane and secure it on board. Fixed container liner service has an advantage of reaching faster. Fleet Line is the market leader in UAE for handling such OOG cargo and has been awarded by top customers from world’s premium shipping lines.

Fleet Line has its own in-house team (which has the accreditation of ISO, HSE and DP world) that provides value added services as one-stop-solution to its customers like loading and lashing, chartering, inland haulage, securing the space on first available vessel, customs clearance at origin and destination, and more.
