Yang Ming Marine Transport Cooperation is a Taiwanese company offering a container transportation service across Australia, Asia, America and Europe. It connects Australia directly with Japan, China, Thailand and Singapore. As a top Melbourne shipping agent, TSL can organise shipping container transport with on your behalf.
Yang Ming has a fleet of 105 container vessels with capacities ranging from under 3,000 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) to 14,000 TEUs. In total, its ships can transport 643,000 TEUs.
The company offers various container sizes including the standard size (8ft x 8.5ft = 20/40ft) as well as high-cube shipping containers which are a foot higher than the standard size. This larger equipment can be used for heavy machinery shipping and transportation of other large items such as vehicles. Open-top and flat-rack containers are also available; these help accommodate freight that doesn’t fit inside a regular container.
Need to organise shipping container transport for items such as mining equipment or farming vehicles? Heavy machinery shipping requires specialised freight forwarding due to the fact the cargo is often bulky – and sometimes has an extremely high value. While some machinery is best sent as breakbulk or RoRo cargo, it can be more cost-efficient to transport it in shipping containers. It may need to be disassembled in order to fit.
Flat-rack, high-cube and open-top containers may also be used to accommodate large items. Using shipping containers rather than RoRo can be cheaper, but this will depend on certain factors such as handling costs at the port of departure and arrival. TSL will choose the best method according to your individual requirements, timeframe and budget.
