Our Projects

We have completed some very unusual projects over the years, from using helicopters to deliver equipment to assisting in the transport of livestock. We love a challenge; if you have one, get in touch.

Oversized Loads

When you think about the outback roads, there is not too much traffic to contend with. However, some of them can be brutal, so regular checks to ensure the load is safe is key. Metro Express were tasked with moving all the mining equipment manufactured in Sydney, through the busy streets all the way out to the Bigryli mine near Alice springs. Most of the roads are plain sailing once out of the populated areas, but the key is not to become too relaxed, especially on the final roads running up to the mine. With over 14,000 tonnes of equipment delivered over a 12 month period, this project took real expertise.


When we were contacted by an agent working on behalf of an anonymous British millionaire to move one of his boats from a specialist boat builder to a luxury harbour in Sydney, we jumped at the chance. Ensuring the route was ready for our delivery and co-ordinating local authorities and the harbour regarding logistics was key to a successful delivery. We were asked to take photos throughout the journey for the owner who, we were told, was very impressed by the precautions we had taken and would recommend us to his friends! Our team were hoping for an invite on to the boat for the day, maybe next time.
