Frequently Asked Questions
Even though a company's considerations are the same, the typical cost to ship underground mining equipment varies from state to state. First off, distance is essential because most transportation providers charge by the mile.
This implies that a long distance will cost more. However, because this makes the truck consumes more fuel, weather and traffic can also indirectly increase the cost. The truck uses more power and costs more when there is heavy traffic.
Project cargo logistics services charge more for faster shipping for your equipment since they have to change their timetable to accommodate you. Still, it’s worth it if a longer delivery will cause trouble since mining isn’t an industry that can afford delays.
This depends on what sort of underground mining loader you’re having the company transport. For normal-sized loads, a flatbed carrier is enough. On the other hand, a 50-feet page can take up to 40,000 pounds, and it's suitable for most loads.
Heavier loads that fall in the oversized category are different. A company will probably use a lowboy trailer since its four-axle variant can hold over 80,000 pounds. It's also built closer to the ground, which is suitable for height regulations and ensuring better balance during the journey.
We cannot provide an exact amount that your mining equipment transportation might take because of the possibility of huge pricing variations, even within the USA or a single state. Even the price per mile changes depending on where your pickup and drop-off location is.
If there is a large distance between the two points, it will take the driver longer to get to you. However, they might show up sooner if the roads are clear. This is crucial for elements like the weather because it can delay travel even over short distances.
The amount of time can vary depending on the weather and traffic. It's best to employ a shipping company ahead of time because both can delay delivery.
Moving underground mining equipment over a substantial distance by yourself is not advisable because it is made up of many small parts, even if you are experienced in using it in the industry. It's not simple and completely different from operating it.
The most important factor that professional transport companies and logistics solutions can do better than regular people is that they are aware of the difficulties of transferring large machinery.
To avoid damage during the journey, the underground equipment is loaded carefully. Due to the complexity of handling freight, your company will send a skilled driver to ensure that the delivery goes off without a hitch.
If you have oversized mining equipment or other heavier loads, they have the experience to recognize which roads are best. This part plays a large role in the time and price of your shipment.
