Heavy Lift Across the World

HLPFI - November/December 2017 - now available!

HLPFI's November/December 2017 edition is packed full of useful information.

Among a multitude of subjects covered in this issue, we take a look at the state of the market in the UK, following the country's vote to leave the EU; the outlook for project logistics in South Africa; the opportunities for ports and project forwarders in France; the ambitious development plans across the Indian Subcontinent; and the signs of revival in some sectors of the project logistics market in Australia.

Our airfreight and heavy haulage sections consider the difficulties of transporting animals by air and the moves to harmonise permitting across Europe. We also take a detailed look at the ongoing investment in non-renewable power generation and the growing demand for warranty surveys.
