Safety is our number one objective when handling your cargoes, which we don’t take lightly. We employ experienced and knowledgeable port captains to supervise and insure the quality of work during the loading operation. We travel extensively to the destinations we service, for a clear understanding of any limitations we should account for when loading. After all, it’s not just about loading your cargo here, it’s about taking responsibility for getting it safely to the destination as well.

We carry everything from Helicopters to Sub-sea Trees, but each and every piece of cargo is handled, loaded and secured with the same care and expertise.

UAL also has a fleet of over 5000 containers including Refrigerated, High Cubes, Opentops and Flatracks. We have the ability to provide a multitude of options including door to door service.
