Attendees at the Project Professionals Group annual conference in Aarhus, Denmark, have left the event optimistic about the future of the project cargo industry, particularly the transportation of oversize, heavy-lift freight.
More than 110 logistics experts from 55 countries attended the conference for project freight forwarders.
PPG general manager Kevin Stephens said conference presenters provided a clear overview of their company’s capabilities and growing demand to meet client service delivery.
‘Delegates left the conference with a great deal of optimism regarding the future of the project cargo industry following the opportunity to discuss new business development and to hear first hand from key air and sea transport service providers,’ Mr. Stephens said.
‘Presentations by air bridge specialists and shippers with heavy lift and over dimensional transportation expertise all highlighted that project cargo was in high demand and was only restricted by aircraft and vessel availability and timetabling.’
Mr. Stephens said PPG members were experiencing growth in the transportation of wind energy generators and blades, heavy industry plant and equipment and for freight forwarding on behalf of the United Nations and military clients.
‘The conference highlighted that the ability to offer custom made solutions will continue to be a key driver of new business for members of the Project Professionals Group.’
