Transportation of extra-sized, oversized and heavyweight cargo.
Oversized (non-standard) cargo are cargo which exceeds established maximum allowable dimensions (length, height, width, weight).
At the railway transport to this type of cargo can be referred loads with the weight which exceeds 60 tons, length – 14 m (length of a standard platform 13,3 m), width – 3,25 m, height – 4 m. At this, the maximum weight of cargo is limited to 500 tons and the possibility of transportation by the size of tunnels and bridges, as well as the low carrying capacity of them.
The railway transportation of the outsized cargo is the best option for their transportation, especially on medium and long distances. 20 tons – is the standard limit for most trucks, but by the railway transport can be transported cargo of almost any weight (up to 500 tons).
Most often «Simplextrans» performs the following transportations of outsized equipment from Turkey, Europe, South Korea to the CIS countries (Kazakhstan, Russia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan etc.) and in the opposite direction:
transportation of construction machinery (excavators, bulldozers, graders, trucks)
transportation of drilling rigs, earth digging machinery, stone crushing machines
transportation of metal constructions
transportation of large equipment (parts of cement, chemical factories, mills, etc.).
In order to start the elaboration of this kind of oversized transportation we need to get from the client the drawings of the outsized positions in several projections indicating the size, the information about weight and the name of the goods, about the route, time and volume of transportation.
