Project & Oversized Cargo

APL has the global resources to ship your special, heavy and oversized cargo safely and securely

CMA CGM Cargoes come in all shapes and sizes and cannot always be squeezed into a standard container. From military tanks to road-building machinery, oil drilling to specialist garments, APL has the experience and know-how to safely transport freight that cannot be containerized. We have Out of Gauge (OOG) and special cargo handling facilities and equipment available globally to support your project and heavy shipments from origin to destination.
