Making use of its international connections and the business network that the company has established over the past 50 years, Vanguard is well-positioned to coordinate the sea freight and inland transport for oversized cargo anywhere in the world. In so doing, Vanguard can ensure the client a one-stop, all-in-one international relocation service offering.
In an ongoing cross-Atlantic project, Vanguard is responsible for the Ex Works delivery of 14 Nuclear Waste Casks, from the manufacturing site in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (USA) to Koeberg Nuclear Power station, in the Western Cape (South Africa).
