Shipping is one method to move oversized items such as plants that have to be set up because of the amount of equipment required. We also help solar manufacturers with air freight to ship replacement components needed for repairs and maintenance. Air freight is a fast, reliable, and convenient way to cover long distances over a short period of time when urgent replacements are required.

Whether you need air freight in Europe or across the globe, we can help with transportation of specialized equipment and will deliver machinery right to the site of the plant. From shipping mounting and racking components and monitoring technology to shipping inverters and charge controllers, we help businesses to save time and minimize destination handling costs.

Even the best quality PV panels and equipment might end up scratched or damaged beyond repair due to poor logistics. It shouldn’t be this way as poor and unreliable logistics results in financial loss and damage to your reputation.

At IFA we offer the full array of specialized services to ensure that equipment arrives safely onsite.

To minimize the risk of damage, PV panels and machinery are handled and shipped with care even at peak times.
