Congratulations to Heavy Lift & Project Forwarding International

The publication launched in 2007, the start of the economic downturn and a period when magazine subscriptions were in free fall. Yet against all odds, this publication has grown a worldwide fan base across an almost invisible industry sector.


Spatial Global is proud to be a partner and part of this success story

It’s unusual for a mailing house to have first hand experience of a specialist publication’s core topic, especially one as niche as heavy lift and project cargo logistics. However, as a freight forwarder with a strong reputation in project cargo, Spatial Global understands the market appeal of this insightful magazine.

Heavy Lift & Project Forwarding International has been a phenomenal success within the sector, probably because of the previous lack of recognition and respect it was given. The innovation and intelligence required to plan and execute some of the projects we report upon just astounds me – yet it’s probably the biggest secret in logistics and engineering.

Peter Edwards, Heavy Lift & Project Forwarding International – Co-founder


The high quality, 140 page plus magazine is distributed by Spatial Global to almost every country around the world, and is packed full of news, insight, information, analysis and successful project cargo articles. It provides a platform for the organisations operating within this critical sector to showcase their heroic engineering and logistical feats. Spatial Global took over the distribution of the publication in early 2016, after a prolonged period of dissatisfaction and lack of responsiveness with the titles incumbent mailing house.

We’re really proud of our achievements as a single title magazine publishing house. The success is a combination of factors, from the energy and enthusiasm across the industry and their willingness to share experiences; to the fantastic editorial and commercial teams we have who bring the projects to life on each of the pages; not forgetting the great job Spatial Global do for us in getting it to our readers.
