Rhenus Project Logistics is an International Freight Forwarder, active mainly in the Project Freight Forwarding Field, as well as General Freight Forwarding. In North America, we have been established since 1981, and effected logistics and forwarding services for numerous projects for the Oil and Gas, Cement, Power, and Steel Industries, among others.
Working in the North American environment, we are, of course, not only arranging the forwarding of material from the place of manufacturer to the port of exit, may this be by rail, truck, or barge, but also look after the delivery of the equipment to the job-site in the country of destination, should your contract entail delivery. As common in international project shipments, we are, of course, not only arranging the transportation from and to North America to the country of destination, but also from any country where project cargo is being sourced.
In addition to the usual forwarding services, we organize and supervise overseas projects from start to completion, utilizing our specialized staff of experienced professionals.
For some clients, we act as their in-house traffic department by arranging and coordinating all aspects of shipping, including document preparation, for their international shipments. Even though there may be a consignee appointed Freight Forwarder, we liaison between them and our client to ensure the smooth handling of all their general international cargo.
During the execution of general cargo shipments, as well as project transports, there are many shipments effected by airfreight and truck, in addition to ocean cargo movements. We handle any airfreight shipment, from small spot moves up to complete aircraft charters. Additionally, we also handle everything from less than truck load moves to complete truck loads, including oversized cargo transport, arranging for all of the necessary road surveys, special equipment, permits and escorts.
As almost all projects consist of merchandise purchased not only in the United States but in various foreign countries as well, Rhenus Project Logistics is very well versed in the arrangement of shipments across international borders. We delegate our well experienced transport specialists from New York or one of our other offices to oversee and ensure the smooth operation of cargo transportation from its point of origin to its final destination.
In the United States, we can also provide packing and crating services in many locations through our third party facilities. This service is also available in many overseas countries. Marine insurance can be covered through our open policy or by providing you with your own open policy through our insurance agent.
