We offer advice based on their scheduling limitations and offer counseling on the risk factors. Our years of expertise allow us to see all variables of each problem, and solve them in the best way possible for each of our clients.

There is truly nothing more intricate, nothing more challenging and nothing more satisfying than being involved in the transaction of a complete project, from beginning to end.

So what exactly is project transportation? A project, in traditional forwarding terms, is the shipment of a complete plant facility from several points of origin and several manufacturers to a single site where the plant will be built, for example:
Saudi Arabia contracted with a project engineering company for the construction of a desalination plant near Jeddah. Equipment for this project came primarily from Japan, Canada and Germany
Iraq contracted with a German engineering company for the construction of an oil refinery for which equipment came primarily from the U.S.A., Canada, Germany and Japan.

Over a period of time, the term "project transportation" has also come to mean the movement of very large shipments over a period of months. For example: 2,000tons of steel towers from Milan to Beirut; or 3,000 tons of prefabricated housing from China to Iraq.

Projects are often situated in remote areas where equipment is rare, access points not adequate, too far away, or simply not commercially accessible due to war risks and other force majeure. LET will find a way to reach the final destination no matter the difficulty. We must utilize one or many modes of transportation and safeguard proper connections every step of the way. This is where chartering plays a role in case there are no regular carriers operating in the area or if cargo is oversized and does not fit in regular containers and aircrafts. LET will organize the movement of goods on a dedicated vessel if the volume and value of cargo justifies it.
