Heavy Equipment Delivered

Shipping heavy equipment such as excavators, cranes, and other heavy machinery is no easy task. The size and weight of these machines make transportation challenging and complex, requiring a high level of expertise and experience in logistics. Sumisho Global Logistics (SGL) is a heavy equipment transport company that specializes in the movement of oversized cargo and has a rich history of experience in international shipments in this area. Our professional logistics team at SGL is committed to providing comprehensive construction equipment transport solutions that cater to the unique requirements and challenges that come with transporting heavy equipment.

Oversized Cargo: Excavators, Cranes, and Construction Equipment

Oversized cargo refers to items that are too large or to be transported by a regular truck, trailer, or other conventional means not designed to transport heavy equipment or haul special trailers. This type of cargo often includes:

  • Excavators
  • Cranes
  • Bulldozers
  • Graders
  • Pavers
  • Concrete mixers
  • Loaders
  • Compacters
  • Scrap and material handlers
  • Farm Equipment

and other heavy machinery.


These machines can weigh up to hundreds of tons and measure several feet in length and width which makes them difficult to transport without specialized expertise or equipment such as heavy haulers. As such, transporting an oversize load is a complex process that requires careful planning and execution from start to finish in order for it to arrive at its destination safely. Sumisho Global Logistics (SGL) has the necessary knowledge and experience needed for successful transportation of oversized cargo including construction equipment.
