Worldwide Freight

Global projects need global logistics - wherever your business goes, we're there for you.

A refinery in the United Arab Emirates, a power plant in India, a dam in China and oil-field supply bases in Mauritania and Indonesia all have one thing in common: SCL Global Projects.

Whether it is a question of just-in-time deliveries or complex project movements to be scheduled and monitored precisely, or whether all the components for a major construction site on another continent are to be procured, transported, and - when necessary - put onto foundations: SCL coordinates quantities and dates for both collection and delivery, ensuring that the right goods reach their consignee at the right time.

SCL Global Projects cover the full range of project freight management and transportation of equipment and materials from the suppliers’ point of delivery to receipt at jobsite, warehouse, or any other delivery/receiving location, as required by client.

We organize the transport from where client takes title of the goods for transport purposes, until arrival of the materials at their applicable destinations. These services cover a wide spectrum of international industry with specialization in oil, gas, petrochemical, energy and associated industries.
