Antrak Logistics manages all the pre- and post shipment details of a project. We manage complex shipments across six continents, taking responsibility for a client’s complete transport needs.
Research and Planning
Pre- and post shipment planning is a critical function for our organisation. Antrak Logistics produces route surveys recommending maximum dimensions and weight restrictions and the requisite transport methods for any given project.
At an early stage, we plan shipping schedules, flag potential transport problems and recommend appropriate solutions to save clients cost and frustrations.
Given the complexity of shipping awkward, out-of-gauge project material, we formulate precise plans and procedures so that deliveries can be carefully orchestrated according to the needs of the client.
Shipping and Support Services
Antrak Logistics identifies the best available shipping methods and competitive schedules, developing a logistics programme that matches the project’s criteria as accurately as possible. When needed, we source appropriate charter vessels. This can mean the chartering of part or full vessels according to cargo volumes and tonnage availability.
The group arranges specialist cargo consolidation, inspection and ex-works collection of consignments from vendors throughout the world working closely with pre-shipment inspectorates when required.
With long experience handling challenging documentary procedures in the developing world, Antrak Logistics provides a quality documentation service pre-empting potential trouble spots, undertaking liaison with Pre-Shipment Inspection (PSI), Port, Ministry and Customs authorities to ensure that documentation is in place and all formalities have been properly complied with.
We take charge of shipments, arranging all loading, physical shipments and port formalities, keeping clients informed about dates and other important issues affecting delivery.
Customs formalities at the port of discharge, on-carriage and contract haulage are an integral part of our service. We are well versed in handling difficult trucking operations and provide highly effective vehicle management services. To improve distribution efficiencies, we also provide on-site cargo handling, marshalling and storage services.
Delivery schedules and computer tracking reports are an important feature of our logistics package. These can be formatted according to specific client requirements. For enhanced management and peace of mind, we can arrange on-line connections between principals, sites and major contractors.
Antrak Logistics is a highly proficient transporter of oversize, heavy lift and other abnormal loads. To avoid late modifications and engineering changes, we recommend our involvement with planning at the earliest possible stage in a project’s design phase.
Transport planning for abnormal loads is therefore conducted in close liaison with the client’s design engineers and fabricators.
Inventory and Delivery Controls
We operate detailed storage, distribution and delivery controls. This means precise inventories can be kept and project material and equipment can be called forward in a well ordered sequence according to client requirements. Deliveries are therefore easily traced and prioritised, and the risk of mis-timed distribution or materials loss are minimised.
Safety and Security
Safety and security throughout the transport chain are of paramount importance to us and all our operations are conducted under a strict code of practice.
Commitment and Accountability
Our commitment is to rigorous quality standards delivering cargo safely, securely and on time, providing a service that you can trust.
