This combination is a perfect fit for both organizations and will allow us to meet your needs in capacities that range from Flatbeds to the 400 Ton Road Train, but that's not all! We are a certified Women's Business Enterprise*, which allows our customers to utilize us for more opportunities than ever before. Overall, Perkins STC's priorities remain focused on planning, safety, and results you can count on.
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.
Planning for over three and a half years to ensure safe delivery from West Valley. Project complete. 📝
Transporting America’s infrastructure and products is challenging, rewarding, and exciting for those willing to do their due diligence. If you’ll give me a few moments of your time, I’d like to explain the value of proven experience and results.
We have been apart of a 2 year transportation research study to help detail and illustrate the challenges faced when permitting oversize and overweight loads across the United States. This project started in 2013 and the findings have recently been published by The National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) on the Transportation Research Board's (TRB) website.
Perkins has its share of battles finding the right people who are cut out for our line of work. Some last a day and others make it their career. We are incredibly lucky and grateful to our crews who work long-hard hours, travel non-stop, and make safety a priority.
Safety. It is often a word claimed to be of great focus, but often the practice or implementation is not practical. Many people have been hurt in the name of safety and in our industry hundreds of people are hurt and even killed because of it each year. While rules and regulations may increase safety in one particular area, it can, in return, expose different areas of risk and danger to varying degrees.
In order to develop a strategy which endorses informative and positive impacts on key stakeholders, there are a few guidelines in regards to transportation to allow for success.
