Key Services

Panalpina is among the top three suppliers of transport and logistics services to some of the biggest projects on Earth. We have an impressive global track record of providing services that are competitive, fully compliant, safe and environmentally responsible.

 

While much of the work is delivered through the core air and ocean freight services, Panalpina’s Energy and Project Solutions experts also offer several distinctive services to meet even the most complex challenges in a competitive, timely, fully compliant, safe, and environmentally responsible way.

 

Services provided include:

 

Planning

Large-scale projects begin long before any major moves are actually carried out. Panalpina supports customers in contract bids by giving detailed advice and pointing out potential transport issues based on local experience.

 

Transport engineering

Installations are designed and manufactured with the transport already in mind. Out-of-gauge and heavy-lift transports can require special transport equipment or even changes to existing infrastructure. Panalpina’s in-house transport engineering department based in Houston (Texas, USA), Bremen (Germany) and Singapore, develops tailored solutions for the most exacting moves.

 

Route and site surveys

Panalpina conducts detailed route and site surveys along transport routes, making sure to account for limitations imposed by infrastructure, climate, season or even the political landscape. If necessary it carries out upgrade work to ensure local road and rail links can carry standard and oversized loads safely. For marine transports, hydrographic surveys of shallow waters are made or safe havens identified in case of bad weather en route.

 

Marine and cargo charters

Panalpina regularly charters specialized marine and river vessels, barges, tugs and supply boats, as well as aircraft such as the Antonov-124, Antonov-12 and Ilyushin-76 to get out-of-gauge and heavy-lift loads safely to their destination. Panalpina also provides port agency and husbandry services for oil and gas customers.

 

Origin and destination services

At origin, Panalpina’s turnkey project forwarding solutions include vendor and purchase order expediting, collection, marshalling, industrial packing, delivery to port or airport and export customs clearance. At destination, Panalpina provides first-hand information on import and local content regulations and manages import customs clearance, which can be particularly complex when moving equipment to remote locations in challenging countries for the oil and gas industry.
