It’s true: no man is an island – especially not when that man is responsible for moving either his own project cargo or project cargo belonging to anybody else. Moving anything not within the limits of normal dimensions or weight requires collaboration. And since logistics demands are infinitely greater and more intense when moving heavy haul than when transporting commodities such as food or building supplies, it stands to good reason the basic plan of action should be taken up a few notches too.

And let it be said that mere collaboration and/or outsourcing complicated logistics isn’t nearly enough to ensure safe and on-time arrival. Moving project cargo requires well-oiled attention to detail, experience in pre-planning and the execution of heavy lifting, knowing who does what when approaching a supply chain partner, and much, much more.

Even so, since our team is a full-time employer of a “worker” named experience, we’re experts at providing the right information to the right (relevant) people.

Taxes And Duties

Many people run at the mere mention of topics related to customs, regulations, taxes, duties, etc. Not only are people generally very careful not to overstep the legal boundaries of customs and duties, but they’re often downright afraid of the financial implications associated with cross-border procurement.

Lucky for our readers, we’ve gotten to be quite good at providing guidance on all things taxes and duties when moving project cargo. In fact, we’re able to teach our readers whatever it is that they need to know about abnormal cross-border road haul, abnormal on-and-off-loading on both sides of the “fence”, what to remember whenever sea freight enters into the equation, and even how to manage abnormal handling on the “other” side without having to actually be physically present.

Procuring Project Cargo Skill

What we’ve learnt about procuring human resources in a project cargo department is this: don’t skimp on skill and don’t be “cheap” when the time comes to negotiate rewarding that skill.

Since project cargo is typically a logistics process requiring highly skilled people taking charge of any particular journey from start to finish, it is absolutely vital to know what qualifications, experience, and skills to look for in a potential project cargo manager.

The procurement of human resources is a topic often overlooked whenever project cargo and its many facets are discussed – much to our surprise! Not even the biggest and best and strongest truck gets to go anywhere unless there’s a human being telling it what to do and where to go. And here’s us telling your where and how to find the best human for the long haul home.

We Know Public Relations

Since we’re not at all ignorant of the fact that many of our readers may from time to time require just a touch of special guidance, we’ve learnt all we can about the role of public relations in project cargo. And we’re eager to pay this knowledge forward.

Since moving anything even remotely resembling abnormal cargo on a public road can potentially raise a world of questions pertaining to issues such as the safety of the general public and the possible impact on the environment, it’s important for us to keep our readers informed regarding the ins and outs and value of public relations within the context of heavy hauling.
