Shipping a Straddle Carrier used to stack containers

Straddle Carriers are well used in the shipping industry to move containers, lumber, and other heavy and bulky materials from one location to another. They can be used to stack heavy shipping containers (from two containers and up to four containers high), making it easier for shipping yards, intermodal yards, and port terminals to clear space and load containers for shipment.

The loads are picked up by the carrier and connected to top lifting points using a container spreader. There are times when these vital pieces of equipment must be relocated for use and when that time comes, A-1 Auto Transport is here to assist with the transport.

How Straddle Carriers Are Transported

While Straddle Carriers are used to relocate materials in shipyards and ports, they too need to be transported to and from one location to another and this can be handled by open-air transport on a lowboy trailer. Typically, the carrier and the cab will often be shipped on two separate trailers due to the overall size of the straddle truck, although depending on the size of the carrier, it may be possible to have both shipped on the same trailer.

A-1 Auto Transport guarantees safe and reliable transport, and stress-free shipping services when shipping a straddle carrier or other heavy equipment.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★ choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

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.
