Project Cargo

Visy Logistics has a wealth of experience at taking on the challenge of complex and unusual logistics and multimodal transportation projects.

Cargo Export to USA – Over dimensional

In 2016, Visy managed the transportation of an over-dimensional industrial tank from regional Victoria to Long Beach, Florida, USA


The client required oversized freight to be transported seamlessly from Victoria, Australia to Port Longbeach, USA, including fulfilment of permits, road and ocean freight tasks.


Firstly, Visy completed a comprehensive transportation plan with the help of relevant authorities, mapping out a route survey including every step of the journey from Shepparton to Long Beach.

Visy then needed to ensure the tank was secured safely for transport to avoid any movement or damage on its long journey. The tank was first lifted onto a fit-for-purpose cradle and then secured to flat rack before being shrink wrapped with thick plastic.

Visy’s experienced staff then worked closely with the Port of Melbourne to ensure all customs clearance preparations and paperwork were in order and the tank was safely stowed for ocean shipment.

The client was highly satisfied that the over-dimensional tank arrived in Florida on time with no damage and that all regulatory and export requirements were handled professionally and efficiently by Visy. The project was also completed within the specified budget.

Shipping to Build a New Corrugators Plant

In 2017, Visy was engaged to manage the shipment of a significant volume of machinery and components from Asia and Europe to Hamilton in New Zealand over a six month period, to build a new corrugator plant


Visy undertook meticulous planning to fully understand the domestic and international freight requirements, for 150 containerised and break-bulk movements.

Importantly, all movements had to coincide with time critical developer milestones for the corrugator plant project.

Throughout the six month project, Visy worked closely with Ex Works suppliers in Asia and Europe, ocean carriers, specialised domestic transport providers and customs clearance on both export and import ends.


All of the scheduled logistics timelines were met, which allowed all staged project dates to be met with no delays or setbacks.

Upgrade of Manufacturing Plant

In 2015, Visy was engaged to manage the shipping of components for the upgrade of a working paper mill in Tumut, NSW


Visy’s task was to project manage domestic and international end-to-end logistics within strict timelines, so as to not disrupt the carefully staged and scheduled upgrade project.

Visy coordinated with Ex Works suppliers in Asia and Europe, along with ocean carriers and specialised domestic transport providers to coordinate component moves accordingly.

The task involved the transportation of 30 containers and break-bulk movements.

Visy was also responsible for ensuring seamless customs clearance for all exports and imports.


All scheduled timelines were met throughout the 4 month transportation project. With no delays or setbacks, the paper mill upgrade proceeded as planned.
