Why training?

Unique skills are required to deal with the characteristic of heavy lifting and transport. Each project involving items that are oversized and impossible to split over different scheduled services. They need to be transported from one place to another and then lifted or installed into place.

Training improves business performance and increases the safety of your operations. We provide both in-company and public training for heavy lift and transport operations and the preparation of cargo securing manuals.
