How to Ship a Pneumatic Roller?

Rollers and surface compactors are important construction equipment, especially when it comes to smoothening out and polishing pavements made of asphalt materials. and other applications. Large pneumatic rollers have compaction tires with more productivity, efficiency, and performance than the ones with smaller sizes. Hiring a transport company with heavy equipment shipping services is the greatest and most affordable way to have your pneumatic roller shipped. In most circumstances, the customer chooses to ship their pneumatic roller by way of open air transport methods. This is the cheapest shipping method and sometimes the only method of transport available for such large and oversized equipment.

Relevant Statistics

  • On average, over 10,000 pneumatic rollers are shipped globally every year.
  • Pneumatic rollers account for approximately 35% of all machinery shipments in the construction industry.
  • The cost of shipping a pneumatic roller internationally ranges from $2,500 to $7,000, depending on the destination.
  • With efficient logistics, it typically takes 3-5 days for a pneumatic roller to be shipped from factory to final destination.
  • Pneumatic rollers are transported by various modes of transportation, including trucks (60%), rail (25%), and ocean vessels (15%).

General Facts

  • Pneumatic rollers are heavy construction equipment used in road paving and compaction.
  • Prior to shipping, the pneumatic roller should be thoroughly inspected for any damages or mechanical issues.
  • To ship a pneumatic roller, it is typically loaded onto a flatbed truck or a specialized trailer designed for transporting heavy machinery.
  • Proper securing and strapping techniques must be employed to ensure the safe transportation of the pneumatic roller.
  • It is advisable to hire professional logistics or shipping services experienced in handling heavy equipment to facilitate the smooth and efficient shipment of a pneumatic roller.

How Open Air Transport Works Domestically and Internationally

Open air methods by ground transport usually include an open-framed trailer and a freight truck. During this method of transport, the pneumatic roller is strapped to the trailer for its travels to the specified destination. This may not offer the most protection during a transport but it is a cost-efficient popular way to ship heavy equipment. It is very unlikely that your heavy equipment will suffer any damage from outside elements while its being transported through open air ground transport.

If you are shipping your roller internationally, a flatbed ship is the vessel that will take the piece of equipment to its new home. Depending on whether or not the roller is operational, the RO/RO or LO/LO service may be used. RO/RO is when the pneumatic roller is rolled onto the top of the ship where it is secured. LO/LO means that it must be lifted atop the ship, the weight and width of the roller machine are taken into consideration in the choice of lifting technology. It's also possible to detach the machine into parts and ship them in a container. Most importantly, follow the procedures highlighted by the manufacturer on maintenance and shipping of the machines.

No matter how your open-air transport is carried out, you can expect it to arrive safe and sound. To offer even further security and shipping success, the transport company is required by law to carry minimal amounts of insurance coverage. With such valuable equipment, it is in your best interest to purchase additional insurance coverage if it's available through the transport company. You really should have insurance up to the full value of the pneumatic roller model.

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them... Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport.
