Heavy equipment of all types is regularly exported to other countries. Ensuring the equipment arrives in excellent condition and in a timely manner requires careful forethought, planning, and understanding the rules and regulations governing exports. Individuals also need to ensure that the equipment is handled properly at every step of its journey and heavy haulers will play a significant part of the process.
Cheap doesn’t mean best. Get quotes from at least three different companies. Individuals have the option of hiring a freight forwarder to ensure the equipment gets to its destination for export. However, a freight forwarder doesn’t actually move the equipment. They’re intermediaries between the shipper and various types of shipping methods ranging from trucks and ships to rail and air.
Individuals can also hire a heavy hauler company such as North American Heavy Haul that provides logistics services, port transports, and international shipping for exporting heavy equipment to other countries. Heavy haulers work tirelessly to ensure the equipment arrives at the appropriate shipping location in a timely manner. There will be an extensive range of documentation involved with which a heavy hauler company is cognizant.
Costs and Delivery
Close doesn’t equate with timeliness or cost-effectiveness. Many individuals choose their transport methods based on the simple expedient of proximity when other methods can be more cost-effective and efficient. Another consideration is that the timing of deliveries and port fees vary according to location. It’s a mistake to assume that the closest port is the most efficient, effective, or timely.
In some instances, choosing a more circuitous route can actually be more cost-effective. Some equipment can be transported in containers and specialized trailers are utilized overland, while some types of equipment may need to have elements dismantled for reassembly at the destination.
No matter where the freight will be shipped, heavy haulers will play an important role. The goal is to move the equipment in the most cost-effective and expeditious manner possible. Always work with a trusted heavy hauler that’s established a reputation for reliability, safety, prompt delivery, and cost-effectiveness.
