Fremantle Heavy Transport Vehicles
Rigids: Rigid lorries have between two and five axles fitted to the frame. They are used to transport large items across well-maintained roads.
Flat-bed lorries: These are rigid trucks with flat trailers. They are often used to transport large, bulky items such as steel girders or concrete pipes. Cargo is contained within blocks or lashed to limit movement during transit.
Articulated lorries: These trucks can handle uneven roads and are more flexible than traditional lorries due to pivot joints which allow them to turn more sharply.
Side-loaders: This type of truck can be loaded from the side, making it easier when there’s limited space. It means the lorry doesn’t have to turn around and won’t block the road.
Prime movers: These heavy-duty towing engines are designed to haul trailered loads.
Low-loaders: With two drops in their deck height, these semi-trailers can be used to accommodate taller loads such as heavy equipment including bulldozers.
Fremantle Heavy Haulage Equipment
To complement the fleet of vehicles available, a variety of equipment is used during loading, unloading and transit.
Forklifts are small industrial trucks that are used to move small pieces of cargo over short distances, for examples boxes of dry goods. They’re also used for transferring goods to and from larger vehicles.
Cranes are used to lift loads that cannot be rolled on and off the transportation vehicle.
Platform/flat-bed trailers are attached to the back of prime movers or articulated trucks to transport loads or equipment. They can usually be loaded and unloaded from the sides.
Jinkers and Dollies are trailer extensions that are added to the main vehicle in order to maximise weight-lifting capacity and distribute the load. Jinkers are often used for transporting logs.
