Have you ever seen something like this before? JR Robledo received a call from a client who needed to transport a 10,000lb micro ingredient system. These oversize machines are used commonly used in the agricultural and industrial industries to precisely measure the ingredients being used. This could be used in a plant or feeding mill setting. The client needed this micro ingredient system transported from Minnesota to California. Aside from the microsystem itself, there were also five pallets full of additional equipment that JR needed to account for.
The micro ingredient system is 10.6 ft in height. That immediately put it into oversize load territory. In order to help with any low-clearance bridges, JR decided to use a lowboy trailer for shipping. A lowboy trailer is a great option for extremely tall loads because it’s lower to the ground. This means the micro ingredient system is also lower to the ground, reducing the need for alternate routes due to the size. JR preplanned the entire transport, to ensure that every road had enough clearance for the oversize load.
Since this isn’t a common transport, JR made sure to double and triple check the safety features put in place. He wanted to make sure that the micro ingredient system was delivered safely, but he also wanted to ensure that the team and driver were safe as well. Once the micro ingredient system was loaded, JR made sure that it was strapped down correctly, double-checked the route, and made sure that all the permits were in order. Once JR was satisfied, the driver began the 1,870-mile journey from Minnesota to California.
Thanks to JR’s meticulous planning, this was a smooth transport. The driver had all the information and supplies to safely load, and transport the micro ingredient system to California. The driver delivered the oversize machinery on time, which meant both the client and the company were able to stay on their planned production schedule.
