Shipping Heavy Equipment for Peterbilt

Even though the trucks made by Peterbilt are often used to ship products, they too must go through the delivery process sometimes. One of these times includes when they are first shipped from the manufacturing facility to the dealership requesting inventory.

With Peterbilt’s global reputation, it’s not uncommon for any owner, dealer or tradesman involved with the brand’s products to need help shipping nationally or internationally. Most transport companies with a longstanding history have the equipment, experience and technology necessary to handle oversized transports with all laws and safety precautions in mind.

It doesn’t matter if you’re shipping your Peterbilt state to state, cross country or overseas, the same shipping method will likely be recommended. Open air methods are the popular option. Sometimes, they’re your only option. This is the cheapest form of shipping which makes it even more appealing to those looking for transport services for heavy duty trucks. Open air services also include insurance coverage provided through the transporter.

If only ground transport is necessary, your open air shipping process will take place with a trailer or other open hauler. Security vehicles may need to lead the oversized cargo to its destination to offer even more protection while alerting others driving on the roadways to use caution while passing. The driver will travel with equipped with technology that alerts them of poor weather and road conditions. If there’s a possibility of danger ahead, the transport specialist will reroute or take alternative measures to protect your cargo.

To ship a Peterbilt overseas, the open air method includes securing the truck to the flat surface of a ship. Considering that the import laws of other countries are all different and usually difficult to understand, it is always nice to have a transport company there to guide you through. They’ll also make sure your truck is delivered to a port that accepts open shipping methods. From that port, the truck is ground transported to its destination.
