New corridors of project cargo flows, Wind Offshore

In Martin Bencher Group global set-up, we have strategically identified 7 business areas to service within the project logistics industry.
We are prioritizing and directing resources to maintain and further develop our strong business foundation on the 7 business areas, but we will continue to serve all. 
One of the strategic business areas are Renewables – and within this business area, we expect to see a continuous boom in activity within the Wind Offshore logistics demand.
Our performance track record within Wind Offshore Logistics already include delivery of 400ton nacelles and 82m blades, delivery of foundations, transition pieces (solutions both by shipment vertically and horizontally) – and also performing global logistics services on all type supply chain components (moulds, steel structures etc).
Related to especially the emerging markets within Wind Offshore logistics industry (e.g. Taiwan, Korea, China, Australia, Japan, France and USA), we see right now new corridors of project cargo component flows.

We also recognize and welcome the growing global cooperation between the wind offshore companies, working together with the type of global offshore companies who historically have been used to service and deliver steel structures or other solutions, e.g. to the Oil and Gas industry or to Infrastructure Industry.  

We see a great commercial potential in this part of the Renewables business area and we believe strongly to be able to deliver great value to you - our clients and partners - on offering project oriented logistics solutions, share essential knowledge and experience in the ‘new’ corridors in order to efficiently, timely and competitively organize the ‘new’ cargo flows.

We will do all we can - to be top of mind with you - as to who to call - when you need logistics services within the wind offshore industry.
