Heavy lift cargo is classified as indivisible items weighing over a ton up to over a thousand tons and have widths and/or heights that exceed 100 meters. Specialty vehicles, vessels and equipment is needed to safely and effectively transport these items via land, air or sea. When shipping items by sea, crane vessels or crane ships may be utilized as well as barges or other heavy lift vessels. Flo-flo vessels are also an option. These are semi-submerging vessels that can be slightly submerged to allow another floating structure to be loaded onto the vessel.
Shipments that exceeds the size requirements for regular cargo aircraft and special large volume cargo planes are required to move exceptionally large items. Large volume cargo aircraft include Antonovs and Boeing 747 cargo planes.
