Speciality Cargo Services

General Cargo

Whether it is one container, or an entire packing list of thousands of tons of cargo, the Alistair Team can make the move. Our in-house team carefully creates a load plan from the packing list, plans and schedules vehicles, and manages the entire process. We can integrate customs clearance, storage, and out of gauge transport expertise to ensure that every piece of cargo reaches its destination.

Out of Gauge Cargo

Alistair Group is an expert in carrying heavy loads in the East and South Africa regions. The Company operates a fleet of specialist low-loader trailers, including extendible and modular units, which allow it to transport almost any cargo with minimal surcharges. Our Cargo Services Operations Team is able to procure permits, arrange police or other government escorts where necessary, and supervise the entire process from loading and lashing to delivery.

Hazardous Cargo

Alistair Group is certified under the ICMI code to carry sodium cyanide and also licensed to transport a range of other hazardous cargos and explosive materials throughout Africa. Our Hazardous Material convoys are the safest on the road and we do everything in our power to ensure that the cargo and our personnel arrive safely.

Rig Moves

The Company has vast experience in disassembling, moving and reassembling onshore rigs in East and South Africa. Alistair Group is able to provide a team of fully trained and dedicated personnel (including managers, drivers, riggers, banksmen and operators) and all of the necessary trucks, trailers, cranes, forklifts and other equipment anywhere in the East and South Africa regions. The Group will provide end-to-end management of the rig move from first import to last delivery, and ensure everything moves as safely and efficiently as possible from one site to another.

Super Long Haul Cargo Services

Alistair Group is the most experienced transporter in super long haul, cross-border transport in Sub Saharan Africa. We regularly move project critical equipment between South Africa and East Africa, to the remote stretches of the DRC, and across the continent from East to South-West Africa. We make industry work better by providing a more efficient alternative to sea freight for clients who have time critical cargo that needs to reach site safely and on time.
