Reducing our clients transportation costs takes a variety of different forms. When transporting a seal drum from Toronto to Calgary AB it was the height, and associated utility costs that were driving up the price.
The solution was custom designed attachments. By partnering with a local engineering firm we were able to design and manufacture a fitting that would attach directly to the vessel and effectively lower the overall height of the load by 1.5ft. We then loaded the drum on a standard scannable trailer with a dolly on the rear. Lowering the hight allowed us to use a more direct route across Canada while dramatically reducing permit and utility costs. What's more, our customer benefitted with a 30% reduction in mobilization costs.
