Transporting over-dimensional loads via rail has a unique set of challenges and requirements. SRT Transportation Solutions has decades of expertise in this mode of transportation. We work with our customers and the railroads to find the best route to the final destination.
SRT Transport Solutions’ team provides trucking solutions when time is of the essence. Whether a flat deck, step deck, or double drop is needed, we can get the cargo there. We manage 10 to 12 thousand truck loads per year.
When the destination is inaccessible to truck or rail, water is the next option. Through SRT Transportation Solutions’ network of barge companies in North America we can work to provide a water delivery option.
When multiple modes of transportation are required, SRT Transportation Solutions collaborates with industry experts in heavy haul and rigging to find the optimum method for transport and delivery to any location.
Single Point of Contact – We coordinate with the railroads, ship lines, riggers, and heavy-haulers throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico to ensure that your project is a success.
Confidential Correspondence – Because we value confidentiality as much as you do, all correspondence, drawings, and information you provide are treated as private and confidential.
Rail Route Studies / Surveys – This service can be invaluable to determine the best possible route, as well as loading and unloading locations for extremely over-dimensional loads.
Engineering / Drawings – With experienced in-house AutoCAD trained employees and on-staff PE, we can generate detailed drawings that show how your cargo will be loaded and secured to the railcar.
Clearances – Rail clearance proposals are required for over-dimensional loads and are used to determine if a shipment can be cleared along a specific route. We submit the critical load information required by the railroad’s clearance and engineering departments and work with them throughout the process to help get timely and comprehensive responses.
