When companies rely on normal shipping fleets, they may find that they need to transport their orders in multiple shipments. Standard fleets may not have the right carrying capacity to transport heavy-weight products like lumber. They also might not be able to carry over-sized lumber products, which complicates lumber transport logistics. Because of this, it’s much better to rely on fleets with higher capacity to streamline shipments and logistics. Lumber transportation is less complicated when companies use heavy-weight fleets, which are designed specifically to carry heavy-weight cargo. Transporting and transloading heavy-weight and oversized lumber necessitates a heavy-weight fleet. At Heavy Weight Transport, we have the capacity for shipping lumber, especially heavy-weight and oversized lumber, with our asset-based drayage fleet. The Heavy Weight Transport fleet is prepared to transport loads up to 64,000 pounds.
Working with a specialized heavy-weight fleet allows you to condense your shipments, resulting in better cost-effectiveness. Lumber transport could require multiple trucks to transport even just one shipment if companies choose regular fleets. Using multiple trucks not only complicates logistics but also costs more. Opting for experienced wood haulers for shipping lumber in heavy-weight trucks reduces lumber transportation overhead. At Heavy Weight Transport, we’re here to make transporting and transloading your heavy-weight lumber shipment work for you. This includes strategizing the best way to transport your lumber products in a cost-effective way without sacrificing efficiency.
Minimized Environmental Impact
Relying on heavy-weight fleets provides increased capacity, improves cost-effectiveness, and reduces environmental impact. Because using heavy-weight capable fleets allows a company to minimize the amount of trucks needed, less carbon emissions are released into the air. Relying on heavy-weight capable fleets can allow your company to use fewer truckloads as compared to using a standard-weight fleet. As a result, fewer truckloads minimize the environmental impact of shipping large cargo.
Experience and Compliance
Choosing to work with a heavy-weight fleet also brings the benefit of having an experienced and highly skilled crew that knows how to comply with local and federal regulations for heavy-weight lumber transportation. Having experienced drivers who have the proper permits for lumber transportation and know the rules and regulations of heavy-weight cargo is essential in ensuring speedy and successful delivery. Companies don’t want their shipments delayed because drivers aren’t complying with regulations or don’t know heavy-weight cargo safety. At Heavy Weight Transport, our team is experienced, highly skilled, and complies with local and federal transportation regulations. Wood haulers need to be familiar with important transportation guidelines to get your company’s lumber shipment to where it needs to be. Successfully shipping lumber starts with experienced drivers, like those at Heavy Weight Transport.
Bonus Benefit: Versatility
As a bonus benefit, versatility is also important when finding the right heavy-weight fleet. At Heavy Weight Transport, we pride ourselves on offering many different services to meet our clients’ ever-changing business needs.

Higher capacity, better cost-effectiveness, minimized environmental impact, experience, compliance, and versatility are all important benefits Heavy Weight Transport delivers for your transportation and transloading lumber needs.
