About Project Transportation
Project Transportation is especially used for the transportation of heavy, bulky, bulky (too long, too wide or too high) goods that are out of gauge.
These types of items are generally used in public/private sector factories, refineries, mining, energy, construction, etc. are the materials, devices or equipment required in infrastructure investments.
In addition to transportation operations, project logistics also includes complex logistics operations and tasks such as special distribution, storage or handling from the customer.
Each project logistics is unique, there is no backup. Every client wants their project to be unique and to be realized in the best way according to their demands.
The logistics business must understand and know the properties of the material to be transported, assembly and disassembly processes, be in cooperation with the customer and be an expert in its business.
Teamwork is a very important factor in these processes. It is very important to make a risk management plan in project transportations. Possible damage and accident estimates are made.
The materials must not be damaged during the transfer. Since there is no backup, there may be heavy indemnity conditions in the contracts. Other aspects of project logistics, which are the subject of insurance
is an integral part. In the absence of insurance and in case of loss/damage, the logistics business not only loses its customers; well above the service charge
may also come with a cost.
The route to be used in Project Transportation is extremely important. There is a need for special mechanisms, transport containers or vehicles in maritime and rail transport types, while in road transport
It can be shipped by multi-axle special vehicles. Port, terminal capacities, tunnels, highways, bridges, junctions, overpass heights and weight lifting capacity, number of road lanes and
Traffic density is a factor to be considered. Four-axle vehicles known as "centipedes" are used for road transport.
These tools are; There are many options such as 6X4, 6X6, 8X4, 8X6, 8X8, 10X4, 10X6 and 10X10. 6X4 tractor type is mostly used in our country. This type of vehicle has many components such as axles, engines, transmissions and brake systems.
The feature is designed for them. Goods that need to be transported with an 8X4 tractor are transported by low-capacity vehicles such as 6X4 in order to reduce the cost. This is a big disadvantage in choosing a vehicle that is not suitable for the goods.
Three basic rules of Project Transportation; "health, safety, security". Drivers should have helmets, work glasses, work gloves and steel-toed shoes with them and receive appropriate training.
All cargoes other than standard sizes, special trailers and towing vehicles suitable for these loads, accompanied by a leading vehicle, obtaining the road permit documents at the possible standards, in the safest and shortest time possible.
transportation to the destination with the combined transportation system, assembly and support services in line with other customer demands. Within the scope of international transportation, heavy and bulky cargoes and facilities that are considered out of gauge
(such as power plant, factory relocations) is considered as a private Project Transportation. Logistics of heavy loads is a special area of logistics used for shipments over 150 tons with a general acceptance.
The tools and equipment used in project and construction logistics differ from those used in other logistics operations. Heavy load transportation called Low-bed (low chassis) in project logistics
tools are used. Therefore, such vehicles have the opportunity to carry loads from 45 tons to 300 tons.
