Since 1986 we have completed thousands of shipments for our customers, and delivered different types of cargo to their final destinations. Below are some of the weird and wonderful shipments we have done in the past.
One of our unusual shipments that we have completed was shipping a Chapel from Sproxton, Leicestershire to Baker University, Kansas USA. Brick by brick the Chapel was dismantled, loaded into 20 containers, delivered to the university in the United Sates, and rebuilt to the same specifications as it stood at his original home.
With it taking just over 9 months to send the timber, glass work, roof, floors, walls, and organ via cargo freight, it was successfully rebuilt and still currently stands at Baker University.

The Power Station
Probably the largest job we have ever done was moving a 30MW Power Station from Ghana to Kenya. This involved moving 58 different sized containers from one side of Africa to the other, all carrying different sections of a temporary power station.
Our customer produced and installed a temporary power station for the Ghana government, to counter act the effect of a serious drought in the region. This drought reduced the water levels within Lake Volta, reducing the amount of electricity being produced from their dam in the lake. After seeing the success of this power station, a company in Mombasa, Kenya got in touch with our customer to bring this power station across Africa.
4 months later we had shipped 58 containers from Ghana to Mombasa, Kenya and delivered them to their new home.
