How should I prepare my construction equipment for transport? Is there anything I must do before it leaves the port?

At NATS Canada, all preparations begin with an inspection of the equipment before loading. We take an analytical approach to transporting your construction equipment, making sure we have arranged the right flatbed for the job. We then ensure the move is conducted within the proper guidelines, ensuring regulatory compliance is strictly adhered to. We arrange all the proper paperwork depending on the type of carrier being used and the type of equipment being transported. No detail is too small.

How are products loaded and unloaded onto flatbeds?

There are multiple ways to load products onto a flatbed. However, there is no singular right way. The job has to be analyzed to ensure the best loading and unloading solutions are considered. That could mean using a forklift, a pump truck, or even a crane in instances where cargo is large, heavy, or oversized. All cargo then has to be properly secured to avoid any risk during transport.

What is the maximum height allowed for a load transported on open deck or flatbed trucks?

There are many obstacles on the road that have to be considered with transporting goods on a flatbed. The maximum standard height on an open deck or flatbed truck is 102 inches. Regardless of the height, a 3PL provider like NATS Canada will map out the entire route to ensure there are no low bridges or train trestles that c could impede the safe transport of the load.

Do you use chains, straps, or both for your flatbed trailers?

Securing the load prior to transport is of paramount importance. Safety is always our first concern, and we work with our transportation partners to ensure every load is handled safely. Depending on what we’re transporting, we secure loads with chains, straps, or both. Mitigating risk on the road is always taken into account.
