When we think about specialized transportation, we get to think about the multiple types of load transportation solutions that have been developed in the last decade.
Hence, specialized transportation is far more complex than conventional transportation. All types of specialized transportation require a high level of coordination, experience as well as good organization.
What Is Specialized Transportation?
Specialized transportation includes transportation of unusual load types that goes way more beyond than just a simple process of load transportation.
Thereupon, specialized transportation provides over-the-road transportation of freight, which due to its unusual size, shape and weight requires the use of specialized equipment such as are the tankers, flatbeds, or refrigerated trailers.
So, now let’s turn the focus on the top 4 types of specialized transportation!
Temperature-controlled transport includes transportation of cargo or goods that are very sensitive to climate conditions. There are typically two classes of refrigerated loads, the ones that should be kept just chilled and the ones that have to be kept frozen.
We at Deni Internacional understand the technical requirements of transporting temperature controlled and refrigerated cargo. Our drivers are well-trained on how to properly monitor and transport your goods at the required temperature.
Our fleet has the capacity to haul the following type of cargo:
- Perishable goods
- Or anything that requires deep freeze, protection from freeze or temperature-control;
Hazardous Materials Transportation
Hazardous transportation is one of the most difficult types of specialized transportation to perform. Yet, besides being one of the most difficult types of specialized transportation, it is rapidly expanding in Europe.
What makes hazardous transportation dangerous for people?
What makes this type of specialized transportation dangerous for people are the actual substances that are being transported. These types of hazardous substances can cause harm to both people as well as to the environment.
Therefore, due to the complexity of hazardous materials, this type of specialized transportation has to follow special transportation rules and regulations. Hazardous materials transportation is being regulated by the Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations (CDG) and the European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road ECE/TRANS/225 (Vol. I & II) (ADR).
It can be noticed that Hazardous transportation is rapidly expanding in Europe, and all that because almost all industries have become dependent on hazardous materials use.
Dry bulk transportation is generally used for transporting finely granule, dry as well as other pourable goods. The demand of this specialized transportation has increased for 5% last year.
Dry bulk goods can be divided into two categories:
- Major Bulks – Includes commodities such as iron, coal and grains.
- Minor Bulks – Includes commodities such as steel products, sugars, cement. Minor bulks cover one-third of the global dry bulk trade.
In the same manner as hazard transportation, dry bulk transportation is highly regulated due to the effects that unwanted situations such as in-transport accident can have on the environment.
The commodities that are being transported with this type of specialized transportation are unpacked, which make them extremely difficult to clean up if they get spilled, which later on can lead to destruction of the environment. It can even lead to causing danger for people as well as to wildlife.
Oversized Cargo Transportation
Oversized cargo transportation is the type of specialized transportation that performs transportation of cargo that exceeds the weight as well as the size limits of the regular cargo.
What type of cargo is considered oversized?
Oversized cargo that is heavy to hauls has a gross weight of more than 80,000 pounds. Or, the cargo that is more than 8 feet and 6 inches wide.
The most common type of oversized cargo that we at Deni Internacional transport includes:
- Construction machinery
- Mining equipment
- Industrial farming tools
In general, we are performing this type of specialized transportation with standard flatbed trailers.
Yet, there are few other options that can be taken in consideration when it comes to oversized cargo transportation:
- Lowboy trailers – These are the second most popular heavy haul trailer. This type of trailer features two drops in deck height.
- Side kit trailers – The kit trailers include a series of removable stakes and covers made of plywood fiberglass that attach to the bed.
- Stretch flatbed trailers – Stretch trailers are most commonly used for carrying extra-long loads, and it makes it the perfect choice for transporting large construction materials that have to be transported in one piece.
We at Deni Internacional know how to provide you with the best and the most optimal solution for all types of cargo. We take approach to each challenge with precision and planning, integrated and with a positive attitude. This strategy helps us eliminate risks on the road to the very minimum.
