David Isherwood is an expert logistics with over 32 years of past over the road truck driver experience. This gives him a unique perspective when it comes to transport. He utilizes his knowledge and hands-on expertise to ensure every client has the best and safest transport available. That’s why when a client needed a JT8D-17 MSN 702631 Boeing jet engine transported from Florida, across the border to Canada, he asked around for someone who would be skilled enough to take on the load.
David’s name came up again and again. His reputation as a reliable logistics agent preceded him, as well as his knowledge of all things transport. The client was immediately comfortable with David taking on the international jet engine shipment, and so, he got to work.
The client already had loading and unloading provisions in place, along with the customs paperwork. That took a little bit off of David’s shoulders, but should the client have needed those things, David would have supplied them. Heavy Haulers is an all-inclusive jet engine transport company, which means we provide as much or as little as you need for transport.
In this case, the client needed the most specific aspect of jet engine transport -- the proper truck and trailer to haul it from Medley, Florida to Leduc, Canada. That’s a 3,025.5 mile journey for the jet engine. Considering the nature of the cargo and the distance of the drive, David searched for an experienced driver who had a clean safety record, and the credentials to cross from the United States into Canada.
Using a Conestoga Trailer for Jet Engine Transport
The JT8D-17 MSN 702631Boeing jet engine transport needed protection from the elements. David decided the best trailer to ship the jet engine would be a Conestoga trailer. While he could have decided on a standard flatbed, and opted to tarp the jet engine, David thought the Conestoga trailer would be a better fit because it has a retractable tarp that goes over the trailer deck. This was a better shipping solution for the jet engine, especially because of the distance to travel. A standard tarp would require extra checks to ensure it didn’t come off. The Conestoga trailer ensures that the jet engine transport is covered and secured throughout the entire journey.
Delivering the JT8D-17 MSN 702631 Boeing Jet Engine to Canada
Once the jet engine was loaded and secured the driver began the 3,025.5 mile journey from Florida to Canada. David kept in contact with the driver, getting regular updates, which he then passed on to the client. This kept the client up to date and gave him confidence in David’s transport methods. The driver adhered to all safety regulations in both the United States and Canada.
This particular transport was done by a team, allowing them to shave off a bit of time. The jet engine was delivered safely in just over three days. The client once again had offloading provisions in place, and the jet engine was safely offloaded from the conestoga trailer. The client had nothing but high praise for David and his execution of the jet engine transport. The jet engine value was $350,000 dollars.
