Do you have cargo that is too big to fit in a container or too heavy to be transported on a plane? Breakbulk shipping is your answer. We use special equipment to load and unload these cargoes individually, often on a skid, pallet or in a crate, as these cargoes do not fit in standard shipping containers or cargo bins.

The handling of oversized, over-weight equipment requires experience and expertise which we possess. Previously, we delivered 42 units of DL Class locomotives for KiwiRail.

Our modern fleet of vessels is designed to carry cargoes in non-standard units or stock keeping units (SKUs) and are purpose-built for heavy lift cargoes. More than a third of our fleet are capable of advanced lifting capabilities. We also specialise in the delivery of heavy equipment to remote areas.

Our vessels are operated by our in-house Swire Shipping and Swire Bulk divisions – this means we are able to offer our customers a diverse delivery schedule to suit their needs.

Maximum lifting capacity of our fleet:

  • Swire Shipping: 60mt to 120mt

Don’t be daunted by your cargo dimensions. We’ll be happy to find a solution for you.
