Going the last mile safely and securely.
The last mile delivery in project cargo is the inland transport phase. By this stage, cargo has been safely discharged and all pieces accounted for at port. Prior to discharge, the project team meticulously crafts loading plans. Equipment and truck types of all sizes are carefully selected and procured, ready for the last phase of transportation.
In the world of project cargo transportation, the shortest distance on the map is rarely a realistic or suitable route option. Size and weight of cargo, stability of infrastructure en route, including a survey of any bridge corrosion and cracking, are all part of key inspection checklists. Engineering surveys must be conducted with delivery timing in mind. Recent weather and other environmental impacts must also be considered.
With project cargo shipments, transportation departments of each state along the route must be consulted to ensure there are no planned construction projects, road closures, or other hazards along the journey. In addition to any required permits, over-gauged shipments and special long axle trucks may require police or special escort cars to accompany the load.
