Oversized goods are a cargo that exceeds the standard characteristics in terms of size: height, length and width. Also, this category includes goods weighing more than 1,500 kilograms.
We use special equipment, cantilever racks and stackers, for handling oversized items in our warehouses. We use lifting loaders for unloading. This technique allows us to move oversized cargo from one vehicle to another quickly and accurately or leave it for temporary storage in a warehouse.
Types of oversized cargo
The most popular types of oversized cargo are as follows:
- steel pipes of large diameter and length;
- building metal and concrete structures;
- industrial machines and other equipment;
- caterpillar special machinery;
- mining and oil production machinery and equipment.
We evaluate the type of cargo, select the optimal equipment and type of slinging during handling operations performed with oversized cargo. Only the correct transfer of such structures guarantees the safety of personnel and the integrity of goods.
