Heavy Transport Consulting Services

Consulting Services • Heavy Transport • Specialist Reports • Planning

Our team of highly trained, experienced transport consulting professionals analyse the impact of abnormal loads on the surrounding environment providing specialist reports and intricate planning of proposed heavy transport routes.



Our transport consulting services provide logistical planning and specialist reports to facilitate safe and professional heavy transport.  Having operated an in-house consulting department for over a decade, we are unique in that our consulting division is incorporated to work alongside our projects, heavy transport and industry sectors.

Possessing detailed knowledge of our specialist tractors, trailers and Self Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMTs), we apply the practical transport considerations of abnormal load vehicles when planning each movement.  Our team understands the behaviour of abnormal load vehicles and has extensive knowledge of transport regulations, environmental considerations and planning requirements.  All these factors are taken into consideration in the early stages of planning a project to ensure minimum environmental impact and to quickly identify any route amendments which may be required to allow the loaded vehicles to successfully navigate the topography.

Once a route has been proposed our team can undertake test drives with vehicles simulating the correct loaded dimensions to assess the suitability of a route. With meticulous knowledge of each trailer in our fleet, the Transport Consulting Team can accurately plan each stage of your project whether it be the delivery of wind turbine components or a 500 Tonne transformer nestled in our Girder Bridge Trailer.

For heavy transport projects we routinely undertake these detailed planning exercises and specialist reports including route access surveys, swept path analysis, topographical surveys, traffic management planning, visual route inspections and environmental impact assessments.  The provision of these specialist reports allows us to identify the ideal route for your cargo.
