Oversized Cargo Motor Transportation: Features

Continent Logistic has its own vehicle fleet of thirteen vehicle units with load-bearing capacity of 1,500 tons. The equipment that we use undergoes regular technical inspection and maintenance; the vehicle fleet is being constantly updated. For transportation of project cargoes we use MAN tractors and Goldhofer trawl modules (48 axes), from which the trawls different in width and length can be assembled. Split module modification makes it possible to carry up to 1,500 tons of cargo using, among other things, a self-propelled unit. Bridges and turns of different radii can be successfully overcome by the use of 4.9 meters wide trawls. The company’s vehicle fleet also has a SCANIA drop-side truck and two pilot cars.

If transportation of oversized cargo requires the use of special vehicles, we will take care of getting all the necessary approvals and permits. In order to select a vehicle suitable for transportation, it is necessary to take into account many factors, such as:

  • Characteristics of the goods (weight, size, and other characteristics);
  • Route of the cargo transportation;
  • Climate features (seasonal complications, possible weather risks for certain climatic zones).

A computer program especially developed for correct distribution of the load on the vehicle platform and calculation of the exact cargo location will facilitate these operations.

Oversized cargo transportation requires careful preparation: it is often necessary to de-energize power lines, strengthen bridges, build temporary piers, increase the radius of the turns on the route of the cargo For many cargoes it is necessary to produce special rigging and develop an individual scheme of fixing. Escort vehicles are often needed for transportation. Continent Logistic experts will think over all these nuances at the early route development stages. Route estimation error is reduced to almost zero through the efforts of professionals, which means that the cargo will be delivered safely and without delay.

We strictly adhere to the rules of transportation of oversized cargoes. The property of the customers is protected by an insurance policy, and a personal manager controls the preparation for transportation and the transportation itself. A customer of Continent Logistic can get detailed information about the cargo transfer on any day of the week, any time of day.
