Perkins STC was hired to haul seven (7) engines weighing 637,000 lbs each, 61 miles from a port in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan during the summer of 2018. The job took over a year and a half to plan due to the extreme dimensions and weight and three and a half weeks to complete. Multiple route surveys, feasibility studies, permitting authorities, third party support teams, and government entities were involved in the success of this move.

The toughest dimension for us to plan, permit, and execute is height. Many of our loads easily reach signs, bridges, and wires and require more time to carefully attend to details associated with a high load. It’s not just finding a route under or around low bridges, it's about mitigating height with the proper trailer and managing the support required from utility companies, bridge engineers, and railroad vendors in order to minimize the cost and scheduling impacts for our customers.
