    The Evolving Project Forwarding Landscape: Consolidation and Diversification in Project Logistics

    Project forwarding requires a specialized subset of skills set within the larger world of freight forwarding and logistics service providers. While many well-known project forwarding houses remain active in the market, some of the largest and most dominant teams in recent years have been swallowed up or shuttered thanks to consolidations or closures. Experienced project forwarders have joined cargo owners’ logistics teams, existing forwarding companies, and even ocean carriers who sense an opening and are positioning themselves in the forwarding space. What does this evolution mean for cargo owners, especially those less familiar with the world of breakbulk and project cargo, as moving this cargo becomes more complicated in an unpredictable, highly changeable global business environment?
