The winner of the Ship Operator of the Year Award, sponsored by Trans Global Projects Group, has been revealed.

Ship Operator - UHL (2)

United Heavy Lift (UHL) secured the trophy for Ship Operator of the Year. One of our judges commented: “UHL expanded the fleet in the last year, with deck carriers and various options, added to the professionalism the company applies along with its engineering background – it has a full package… a deserving winner.”

UHL also executed one of the most challenging shipping campaigns for BHP’s South Flank Project in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, transporting 480,000 freight tons of cargo. Coordinating such a project, while negotiating stringent biosecurity laws and Covid-19 quarantine requirements, was highlighted in detail.

Congratulations are also in order for our other finalists, all of which put forward strong cases for this year’s award: AAL Shipping, CMA CGM, dship Carriers, FESCO, Grimaldi Group and SAL Heavy Lift.
