Heavy transport, oversized transport and special transport organization does not simply consist of loading the goods and hauling to destination. Management of this type of transport requires a precise groundwork, which starts at the office with analysis and planning of the route and risk assesment and ends with the work of the driver and the operator. We don’t want to see downtime nor obstacles in the work – neither in domestic nor in international transport. The saying “the ship is not waiting” has a completely different meaning in our line of work and therefore we take every customer, every order and every shipment extremely seriously and organize it by thoroughly, analyzing every detail.
First step in heavy transport and oversized transport is always planning. What needs to be transported from point A to point B? Loading conditions, load dimensions and weight – these vary a lot depending what is the load. Forestry tractor, truck, modular house module or large grain hopper – different loads demand different approach. Also – is shipment delivered to destination in one piece or is it more reasonable to dismantle it and ship in containers? Contact us and we will find the best answers for all these questions.
Driving from point A to point B in a car is easy: as long as the road is usable and road isn’t blocked you will arrive to your destination. Heavier and larger the load is, more aspects has to be taken in consideration in route planning. What is the maximum allowed weight of the freight on the road, whether it is possible to make a turn at intersection or whether the height or width of the load is higher than allowed. Planning the correct route and applying for special permits and approvals is our everyday work. In the end goal is simple – cargo arrives to destination undamaged and on time.
Route preparation goes hand in hand with special permits and approvals. Thanks to years-long experience on the field we can assess the situation, accurately plan the route and also anticipate any possible bottlenecks on route. In the end, we can assure that cargo arrives to destination on time, not ending sideways in a ditch nor wedged under overpass.
Pilot car service
Pilot car is not just a vehicle with oversized load sign and flasher that moves in front of the truck. Purpose of the pilot car is to mitigate unexpected hazards that inevitably occur on the road to ensure the smooth and safe movement of cargo from point A to point B.
Main task of pilot car operator is to foresee possible dangers on the route, mitigate those risks and find most viable solutions on the fly. Both the pilot car operator and the truck driver work on the road as a team to ensure that valuable cargo reaches its destination.
