MACHINERY AND EQUIPMENT
Industrial, medical, CNC and milling machinery are ever more complex and sophisticated, requiring specialized care during transport. From single machine/tool moves to complete machine-shop relocations, count on R & J Maritime to broker the logistics best suited for your machine transport needs, including:
SHIPPING HOME CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS
Logistics are key to efficiently building out new construction homes. Whether the properties are single- or multi-family/attached-home communities, effectively transporting materials to the job site is critical to success. R & J Maritime is your go-to resource for delivering new home construction materials to the right place at the right time, including the following types of cargo:
SHIPPING BUILDING MATERIALS
Transporting raw materials for construction demands ingenuity in itself. Since many skyscrapers are built within the framework of an established city, nearby buildings limit the space available for storage and construction—so it’s common for I-beams, for example, to be delivered to worksites at the exact time they’re needed for placement. Such heavy, long and awkward loads require mass coordination, secure rigging and the experience offered through dedicated truckload services.
SHIPPING LARGE EQUIPMENT
Due to the size and weight of heavy equipment, special shipping considerations will likely be required. The shipment of tractors, cranes, forklifts, or other large industrial equipment may potentially require a certain carrier that specializes in heavy equipment. Heavy equipment shipping can be a difficult task and it’s essential that you chose a specialized carrier that is familiar and experienced with your hauling needs. R&J Maritime can point you in the right direction of choosing a provider that can meet those needs for you.
LTL OR TL
Depends on how big are we talking? If you’re shipping machinery like an engine, it won’t take up an entire trailer and you’re better off choosing LTL. If you’re shipping something like 3 commercial lawn mowers though, you enter the arena where you may want to consider choosing TL. Any time your freight weighs more than 15,000 pounds or if you are shipping more than 10 pallets worth of goods, it makes sense to ship truckload. Consult with an agent when getting your free, instant freight quote to determine which option is right for you.
