Fracht’s specialists conduct site and route surveys to plan the lifting, securing and international transportation of heavy lifts, long lengths, volume and turnkey contracts.

Personal representation is a critical element in efficient project movements, with Fracht personnel regularly meeting with public and transport authorities as well as liaising with engineers and supervising origin loading, securing by the carrier and unloading attendance.

Fracht handles the very biggest movements and has global access to sea and air charters, specialist road transport equipment, rail age and barging.
