Flatbed/Overweight Frieght Allowed
The majority of the world’s cargo can be handled, within the boundaries of shipping containers. They make transport easy and are typically a very straightforward process. However, there are plenty of other things, which need to be transported, which don’t fall within the dimensions of a container. From large earthmoving equipment, to industrial machinery, to necessary construction elements. Many of these will be categorized as oversized or overweight. Moving these is a challenge unto itself; one, which can only be fulfilled by a fully licensed company, with the appropriate fleet for the job. For the ports of Seattle and Tacoma, you can find these capabilities in Shippers Transport Express.
Oversized and Overweight Transportation
An oversized or an overweight load of cargo will exceed the standard legal dimensions, specified to be safe on the roads. This will be an item, which cannot be broken down into smaller parts for transfer. It is going to be necessary, to have these transported in one. To do this, they will need to be loaded onto a flatbed and marked as an oversized load. When we execute your oversized or overweight freight transfer, we make sure that each is handled with planning, precision and care. You can count on us to transfer abnormal loads across the region.
Licensed Transportation Company
We are one of only a few companies, who are able to offer this service in the area. It is not something that you could find with any normal transportation company, as it requires a more serious level of certification. Of course, though, that is something which we do have. Our company is fully licensed to carry out the transportation of any oversized or overweight cargo. Following our dedication towards compliance, we make sure that every permit is valid, whenever we are required to move such a load.
To you, the party, responsible for the cargo, there is nothing more important than a secure transfer. Logistically, moving any oversized load is going to be difficult. There needs to be planning in the way of the route, a sustained period of careful transportation and precision in each move. That means, unloading, loading and driving, all need to be held to high standards. We ensure this on every single job, making sure that we are always compliant with our set of standards. And, when it comes to the transportation process itself, we always ensure our trucks are escorted from start to finish.
To be able to handle the majority of oversized loads, we make use of certain members of our vehicle fleet. We use our flatbed trucks, with large flatbed spaces, which are able to hold incredible amounts of weight. And, compared to a normal loading system, they make the process much more straightforward. Having flatbed capabilities has meant that we have been able to facilitate a broad range of types of freight. From industrial sized cranes to large single pieces of machinery, our flatbed trucks have meant we have fulfilled the maximum amount of our customers’ needs.
