Transporting a Fuel Tank by Semi Truck

Louis, one of our trusted heavy loads and equipment shipping specialists, was tasked with transporting a fuel tank. The request came from a client who had recently purchased the tank from an auction. Louis understood that the operation was delicate. The client requested that the trailer be shipped from Columbus, TX 78934 to Kingman, AZ 86401. The logistics team established that the process would take three days. Louis and his team were determined to beat the deadline and immediately started preparing the fuel tank for loading and transit.

Transporting a Fuel Tank Efficiently Across The Country with Heavy Haulers

Louis understood the delicate nature of the operation. The trailer had to be thoroughly cleaned before loading it on the trailer. After power washing the tank, it was carefully loaded on the trailer by three hydraulic lifts. Utmost care was taken when placing it on the trailer. Louis understood that a dent on the fuel tank meant an alteration in the capacity of the container. Once the fuel tanks were loaded, Louis made a pre-check on the loaded set up and gave the green light.

The client called several times to ask about the progress of the operation two days into the journey. The dispatch team provided a detailed account of the operation. During transit, the driver had to take breaks in between to minimize fatigue. Integrity checks on the setup were made with the help of specialists. The operation was ahead of schedule, and Louis asked the driver to take an alternative route when the pilot vehicle reported a low clearance bridge ahead.
