The shipping of all types of cargoes such as bulldozers, cranes, trucks plant equipment, project cargoes and other heavy industrial machinery requires a specialised freight and logistics service provider, considers the company. This is especially important in the Middle East region as infrastructure investment and developments continue to be high demand.
CSS is one of the Middle East and the Subcontinent's largest asset-based logistics organisations and manages purchase orders, ensures vendor compliance and physically consolidates cargo and control bookings and shipments.
