Port Kembla Heavy Transport Vehicles
When a curtainsider truck just won’t do the job, TSL calls upon a heavier-duty vehicle for Port Kembla heavy transport. Below we’ve listed some of the trucks and lorries that are used in the heavy haulage industry to transport larger items such as generator units, cranes and boats.
Rigid lorries are made with up to five axles and a single rigid chassis. These vehicles are often used to transport dry goods such as toilet paper and shipping containers. They are best suited to smooth, tarmacked roads.
Flat-bed lorries are rigid lorries used with flat trailers. This type of vehicle will often be used to transport large, bulky items such as concrete pipes and water tanks. Often the load is blocked or lashed to keep it still during transit.
Articulated lorries consist of a front unit and a trailer joined together. Because they are more flexible, they’re often used for extremely large loads. They perform well on non-tarmacked surfaces types such as on dirt, sand or gravel.
Side-loaders enable easier loading and unloading because they allow goods to be placed on the vehicle from the sideways, as the name suggests. This means the weight of the load can be distributed more easily and better use can be made of the space on the vehicle.
Low-loaders (sometimes called lowboy trailers) sit lower on the road than standard trailers which gives extra height. This enables the carriage of taller items including industrial equipment.
Prime movers are heavy-duty towing engines that are designed to haul trailered loads.
For the most part, the lorries and trucks used by TSL are also listed under Australia’s NHVAS (National Heavy Vehicle Accreditation Scheme).
