Shipping Heavy Equipment for Caterpillar
You can expect that most of the heavy equipment and machinery designed by CAT will need to be delivered through open air services. Due to the size of the construction equipment created and manufactured by the company, open air methods are typically the only form of transport possible.
Trailers, flatbed ships and other similar pieces of equipment are used to deliver the oversized Caterpillar machines.

In most cases, a transport company will insure the entire value of the equipment being delivered through them.
