General and Project Cargo
The “General Cargo” includes all goods whose load requires no special equipment for handling and is not regulated by any outside transport agency.
These kind of goods are usually packed or contained (linked one to each other, arranged in a certain order); examples of general cargos are: packages, pallets, cartons, rolls, etc.. Their handling can usually be done with pumps jacks forklifts or the warehouse staff.
What distinguishes “Project Cargo” is essentially the type of goods, the destination of the goods, the place of arrival. i.e: the site of a live construction of a factory, an oil well, etc.
From this it follows that Project Cargo has different transport requirements, with voluminous and heavy materials, including components of industrial equipment that cannot be shipped as a single unit load. In addition to the type of goods there is also a more complete organizational component (expediting, pre-shipping, forwarding, and material management) and a compliance with more rigid quality standards.
