Scan-Trans - Transport Solutions for Project and Heavy Lift Cargoes

Scan-Trans not only takes care of sales/chartering, but is also responsible for local operations, acting as on-site supercargoes when project and heavy lift cargoes are loaded and discharged worldwide.

Plant Cargo

Scan-Trans is the fusion of two companies: Monsted Chartering and Scan-Trans Shipping, each of which developed a reputation for first-class service and profitability within their specialties prior to their merger.

By applying the unique skills and values of the global Scan-Trans team, we offer safe, reliable and tailor made transport solutions, to create long term value for our customers, employees and stakeholders.

Supercargoes, cargo handling and stowage

Scan-Trans Group has a top professional team of full time supercargoes attending most loading and discharging operations worldwide. This provides proper and safe cargo handling, stowage and lashing/securing arrangements. Combined with extensive preload planning, we can assure smooth operations and safe delivery of cargoes entrusted to us.

Scan-Trans personnel know the business because we live it. We are a hands-on organisation, working with you not just in offices, over the phone or via the Internet, but wherever your goods are - whether that's on the dock, on-board ship, or in the air.

Scan-Trans own partially or wholly several vessels in its fleet. Vessels are all from the second hand market. Vessels are all technically managed by sub contractors, and commercially managed by the Scan-Trans commercial offices.

Vessels charter operator

The Scan-Trans group is a renowned time charter operator, having a reputation as a first class charterer. Vessels are chartered under the different shipping lines controlled by the group. Scan-Trans offers time charters ranging from single voyage time charter trips up to periods of several years. We enjoy an excellent relationship with owners, based on a high level of cooperation and trust from both sides. This makes sure that both parties enjoy a win-win situation, which ultimately means that our customers receive an outstanding service.

Ship brokers

If Scan-Trans does not have their own suitable vessel in position, or if our customers have requirements which are outside the abilities of the fleet, we act as brokers in order to make sure our customers are serviced in the best possible way. This is possible due to the close relationship with other owners and operators.

Project cargo and heavylift transportation

Project cargo and heavylift consignments require the utmost attention to safety, speed and reliability. Even the slightest damage or delay can seriously impact a project. Consequently, we have decided, circumstances permitting, to use smaller box-shaped multi-purpose tweendeck/heavylift ships, enabling us to avoid the many calls at intermediate ports that can extend the duration of the voyage and cause serious problems for clients.

Heavy lift shipments are another main stay of the Scan-Trans group. At the moment the group has vessels of up to 400mts lifting capacity, and we can furthermore, through booking agency and other close owner contacts, arrange vessels with lifting capacities up to 1,400mts. Scan-Trans port captains are also heavy lift specialists, having served on similar vessels offered by Scan-Trans.

Break bulk

If your shipping needs are for more standard goods like pipes, steel coils, plates, crated goods, bagged goods etc. then Scan-Trans can also be of assistance. Additionally we are competent with shallow drafts and ports with difficult accessibility.

Windmill transportation

In the rapidly growing market for alternative energy, Danish producers and transporters have managed to stay on top of the game. This has resulted in a tremendous know how in the transportation of specialised windmill shipments. Today many other nations have entered the industry, and Scan-Trans is today working with all major producers and their forwarders. Our supercargoes have good knowledge about the many different models of windmills, and are therefore able to optimise stowage to the benefit of both client and carrier.
