About Project Cargo Network

Project Cargo Network (PCN) is an ISO 9001 (Quality Management) and ISO 14001 (Environmental Management) certified organisation established to provide a networking platform for the world’s top project cargo specialists, who want to increase their business by either referring one another or doing business directly with one another. PCN is a Founder Member of ELITE, the industry's only recognized grouping of quality independent freight forwarder networks.
Today, PCN has an international presence that extends to over 800 worldwide offices in 108 countries with 11,794 staff members handling over 108,000 shipments per month. With collective Annual Revenues of USD 2.931 Billion, PCN is now larger than many multi-national companies. To ensure that we recruit and promote the top specialists in our industry, PCN is only open to forwarders who have proven expertise and experience in handling project cargo/heavy lift shipments. View examples.
Our Members handle the transportation of oversized and heavy items or shipments that consist of complex components. They offer project cargo management for engineering, procurement and construction companies servicing energy, mining, chemical, petrochemical, pipeline, infrastructure and other sectors. These highly specialist shipments require individual transport planning from origin to destination.
Projects come from numerous sectors including oil and gas, pulp and paper, automotive, construction, power and energy, as well as aid cargo.  Shipments include generators, turbines, reactors, boilers, towers, casting, heaters, presses, locomotives, boats, satellites, military personnel and equipment. In the offshore industry parts of oil rigs and production platforms are also moved; some of these are also disassembled at the end of an installation's working life.
The current world trend for green energy and the substantial investment in clean energy technology is providing a rapid increase in business opportunities for project cargo specialists who have the required capabilities in the supply chain management of oversize equipment.
Because most of our Member offices are managed by privately-owned companies, they can focus 100% on providing a personal service that is tailored to client’s needs. Our PCN Members can accommodate specific requests and make immediate decisions and recommendations on each individual project or shipment whilst belonging to a worldwide alliance of specialist partners and having instant access to the latest in today’s online networking technology.
Over 145 CEOs and Senior Managers from 65 countries gathered in November 2013 in Bangkok for Project Cargo Network's 3rd Annual Summit. Read more.

Wilhelmsen Ships Service is proud to have joined PCN. Being a year-long member of several other networks with various degrees of success, we can testify that any network is only as good as its management and its members; the ongoing screening process of every member performed by Rachel Humphrey and her team, and the clear cut objective of the network to grow overall business for every member through active participation makes PCN stand out. PCN is a young network making it dynamic; the combined experience, the project focus, and global reach makes it very strong.
