Heavy Cargo Delivery

Carriage of heavy cargo falls into the category of the oversize trucking. Heavy cargo is considered the cargo of non-standard sizes , the weight of which ( together with the weight of the vehicle) exceeds the permissible weight limit. By the way in Russia the maximum permissible gross laden is 38 tons.

To provide for smooth trucking  of  heavy cargo our Company employs special-purpose  road trains-  low loaders.

Carriage of heavy cargo is labor consuming task requiring  a lot  of calculations. One shall take into account all axial loads, which manifest themselves while a vehicle is moving, select correct fastenings to ensure safety of cargo during transportation. Cargo handling  carried out  with the use of the special –purpose equipment requires even more attention.

Special emphasis is given to the traffic routing. It is to be wished that the vehicles go at a distance from towns and settlements.  If  this is next to impossible then a vehicle shall be on the road ( of settlement, town, etc) at the time of the minimum traffic load and volume ( as a rule, in the  night-time). In the opposite case the heavy cargo transport device  shall be accompanied by the special-purpose vehicles.
