Get a Little Closer

The world of project logistics is full of challenges, from heavy and oversized loads to impossible routes, complexity, and risks. Transportes Lalgy has over 25 years in the project logistics division, experience in handling complex projects and non-standard equipment, and achieving your goals with safety, health, and environmental care in mind. The scope of projects is enormous, regardless of the sector, they are in – power plants and mechanical engineering, construction, energy, oil, gas, or renewable energy. These loads refuse to fit into small packages organized for simple transport. They are too heavy, too clunky, and require complex preliminary planning, proven experience, and active supervision from a partner who cares about your project as much as you do.
