Heavy Equipment Transport to and from Ports
Transporting heavy equipment overland is our specialty. Our drivers have years of experienced hauling heavy machinery to US ports for export. When we send your driver to the port, we make sure the operator possesses ID documents for that port. Pre-registered drivers get in fast, while unregistered operators usually wait hours before entry is authorized.
We’ll match your heavy equipment with the best trailer for hauling it to port. You can depend upon us to get your machine to port on time and in perfect shape. Your trailer options for shipping heavy equipment to the port include:
- RGN trailer. At the port, you want to be able to drive your equipment off the trailer as quick as possible. Ask your agent to send a hydraulic RGN.
- Step deck trailer. A step-deck with steel ramps also is great for transporting equipment to the port. Rear offload, so you don’t have to move the tractor.
- Flatbed trailer. Ports usually have limited services for unloading equipment. Ask your agent to check for dock or crane availability.
Do you have transport for your machinery from the destination port to its next location? United Heavy Haul can handle both ends of your overland transport. Ask us to take care of shipping your heavy equipment from your destination to port to anywhere you need. Our electronic Rolodex is full of dependable partners willing to haul your equipment from port all over the world.
International Heavy Equipment Shipping
Likewise, our knowledgeable agents know all the ins-and-outs of shipping your heavy equipment overseas. We work with well-known, experienced freight forwarders to ship your heavy equipment overseas. Speak with your agent to learn all your export options.
On some routes, container shipping is your only option. Our partners will disassemble your equipment so that it fits in an ocean container, if needed. Your options for shipping your heavy equipment overseas includes:
- Full Container Load (FCL) shipping. Often the least expensive way to ship your equipment, because they can be loaded and unloaded with a crane.
- Less-than- Container (LTC) shipping. Smaller pieces of equipment can ship on an open deck. We also can combine your shipment with another load.
- RollOnRollOff (RoRo) shipping. We’ll drive your equipment onboard an ocean vessel and chain it to the deck, where its covered for transport.
- Air freight. It’s faster to fly than ship overseas, but much more expensive. To ship your equipment by air, you pay by weight rather than by container.
We also handle break-bulk cargo, equipment without wheels that’s too large to travel in a container. No matter how large or unwieldy your piece of equipment is, we can find a way to ship it internationally. Call us today to learn more about overseas transport for your heavy machinery.
