A wide cross section of industries have benefited from Wallis’ machinery logistics and freight management skills in arranging the transport of plant and heavy equipment of all shapes and sizes. Now one of the leading specialists in the international movement of heavy machinery from the UK, Wallis have accumulated a wealth of expertise over our 30 years in the shipping industry that enables us to find solutions for our machinery customers.


Whether you are shipping a bulldozer, an excavator or a crane, our experienced staff know exactly what is required to transport your heavy equipment in the safest and most economical shipping configuration. We have shipped complete production lines of machinery for global manufacturers which include submarines used in oil exploration and propulsion equipment for the worlds’ largest ships.


Over the years we have exported a huge amount of plant machinery all over the world, with the help of our trusted global infrastructure we have shipped frequently to the Middle East, particularly Dubai, Bahrain and Saudi as well as to Asia; China, Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia. The types of plant machinery that we deal with varies greatly from shipping small pallets of vital components that have kept car production lines running in Mexico City, or ships spares to keep vessels moving in Singapore up to much larger items such as trenchers, mining tractors and 30 metre long Archimedean screw pumps destined for Egypt.


Our project teams will coordinate with you the best method of transport, whether by shipping cargo by airfreight on a project aircraft, or by seafreight with a Ro Ro service or dissembling the machinery and packing it into a 20’ or 40’ container or high top.

Our expert teams can help you with stowage plans for containers and getting the paperwork right before it leaves the UK. As with all exports, documentation is very important but even more so with heavy plant and machinery – we can help. Our previous clients have saved a lot of time and money by letting us guide them through the documentation side of the export.
