What is project logistics?
Project logistics is typically classified into three types: spot out of gauge (OOG) shipments, turnkey projects, and resupply. All project cargo must be quoted and executed by project experts who understand how to transport oversized, overweight, and over dimensional cargo. Additionally, it's critical to focus on Q-HSSE and compliance at all times.
What is the role of engineering logistics in manufacturing?
Our engineering teams are here to support planning for all out of gauge shipments. They ensure that the cargo is delivered to the site and in the safest way possible.
How does project logistics help to reduce costs?
Many times, businesses find out too late that the cargo cannot be delivered to the required destination, for various reasons. Sometimes it's because the goods are too large, heavy or complex. By engaging with transport engineers early on in the project, you can ensure cargoes are delivered on time and on budget.
How does project logistics differ from regular logistics services?
When transporting everyday goods like clothes, non-perishable food, or toys, the logistics is fairly straightforward. But for larger, heavy, or complex cargo, you need special arrangements to be made. This is where project logistics comes into play. Not all logistics companies can offer project logistics solutions. This is because, unlike regular logistics services, project logistics requires a culture of innovation, expertise, and technologies to safely handle complex, oversized, & extra-heavy cargo. Special handling of goods is done in innovative ways by project logistics teams at 3PL providers like GEODIS.

Armed with the latest technologies and experience, GEODIS offers bespoke logistics system design and operations, especially for out of gauge cargo or other goods that need special handling. This means you can improve operational efficiency and reduce costs when handling oversized and heavy cargo.
