The cab of the Peterbilt tandem axle truck had some loose fixtures which were removed to be replaced after offloading. The engine on the truck was located on the front axle. The weight had to be redistributed to the rear part of the vehicle. With four axles and a six by four configuration, all the wheels were tied down with tie straps to minimize wiggling during transit. JT ensured all the safety measures were implemented during and after transportation. For instance, the driver had to make stops for integrity checks after every 150 miles. These stops also allowed the driver to rest and minimize fatigue.
