Metro transport – Oversize freight

Clarke Global Logistics has long-standing relationships with major wharf carriers, airport carriers, interstate and local carriers to provide our clients with the best available transport services.

We offer door-to-door transport services for FCL (full container load) and LCL (less than container load) freight, including planning and logistics of oversize items travelling from your warehouse to meet air freight or sea freight services.

We offer a number of facilities to help you transport your oversize and overdimensional freight within Australia metro areas and from international ports. These include:

  • container sideloaders
  • trays
  • step-deck / low loaders
  • crane trucks / tailgate loaders

Specialist handling services

If your cargo does not conform to standard container sizes, then your oversize freight will require specialist handling. Clarke Global will facilitate transportation for oversize cargo and ensure freight arrives at the intended destination with care.

Clarke Global Logistics is experienced in utilising the best range of carriers that specialise in the transfer and handling of over-dimensional or Out of Gauge (OOG) Cargo by shipping to and from Australia, from all Australian shipping terminals to point of destination.

The specialist carriers have access to:

  • Step deck trailers
  • Extendable trailers
  • Floats, flat tops
  • Pilot vehicles
  • Crane services

Container Logistics Planning

To remain competitive and profitable every Australian importer should have an efficient container logistics plan that is cost effective, reliable and capable of growing with their business’ unique needs and expectations. Without a logistics plan importers can be exposed to unwanted additional costs including:

  • Transport demurrage
  • Wharf storage
  • Shipping line detention charges

At Clarke Global we combine a unique container planning process with extensive local knowledge and shipping line data to plan each touch point during a containers journey from arrival port to destination.

So whatever the challenge, existing and new clients can be guaranteed we will work tirelessly to ensure each container delivery is completed in a safe, timely and cost effective manner.

Frequently asked questions

Warehousing plays a crucial role in global logistics by providing a central point for storing, managing, and distributing goods. It helps optimise the supply chain by strategically placing inventory, reducing transportation costs, and ensuring timely delivery to meet customer demands.

An example of global logistics is the movement of goods across international borders. This includes the transportation, storage, and distribution of products from manufacturing facilities to warehouses and eventually to end consumers worldwide.

Warehousing and distribution involve the storage and movement of goods within a supply chain. Warehousing refers to the storage of products in a facility, while distribution encompasses the processes of order fulfilment, picking, packing, and shipping to ensure timely delivery to end customers.

The four main types of warehouses and distribution centres are:

  • Raw Material Warehouses: Store materials needed for production.
  • Finished Goods Warehouses: Store completed products before distribution.
  • Consolidation Warehouses: Combine smaller shipments into larger ones for cost-effective transportation.
  • Distribution Centers: Facilitate the efficient movement of goods from manufacturers to retailers or end consumers.

The four basic functions in a warehouse are:

  • Receiving: Accepting and inspecting incoming goods.
  • Storage: Storing products in a systematic and organised manner.
  • Picking: Selecting items from inventory for order fulfilment.
  • Shipping: Preparing and dispatching goods to their final destinations.

Logistics services involve a range of activities related to the movement and management of goods. This includes transportation, warehousing, inventory management, order fulfilment, and distribution. Logistics services aim to streamline the supply chain, reduce costs, and enhance overall efficiency.

Logistics encompasses the entire process of planning, implementing, and controlling the efficient movement and storage of goods, services, and information from the point of origin to the final destination. Warehousing is a key component of logistics and involves the storage and management of goods within a designated facility to support the overall supply chain.
