Serving domestic and international markets shipping through the Port of Houston, we offer a fleet of dedicated trucks continually moving import/export cargo to and from the port terminals.

Industries such as petrochemical, construction, fabrication, energy, oilfield, and manufacturing rely on Palletized Trucking to safely deliver items such as pressure vessels, tanks, turbines, rotors, generators, transformers, pumps, compressors, coolers, presses, mills, machinery, raw and fabricated steel, building materials, drums, textiles, modular control buildings, sub-sea equipment, hazardous material, and, of course, palletized cargo.

We have also announced the creation of our Hot Shot Division. This division will enhance our capabilities to serve our customers’ on-demand needs by providing direct service throughout the greater Houston area and to any destination in the Continental U.S. Our fleet consists of pickup trucks, short and long stake beds, gooseneck trailers, and up to 40 foot mini floats.

Does your staff have all of the proper credentials?

All of our associates are certified for Super load transportation in the Houston area. If there are other training or certifications required, we are more than willing to have our associates trained specifically for your project.

How much lead time do you need to prepare to move Super loads?

Due to the size of the freight that we move in this division, the most states require 6-8 weeks to issue permits.

How much notice do I need to provide to schedule a superload?

Superloads are loads which exceed the dimensions and/or weights normally issued on routine permits. The definition of a superload varies from state to state. For an example, Texas defines a superload as one which, when loaded, exceeds 20′ wide, 18′-11″ high, or 125′ long. A permit of this description requires advance application and physical route inspection. Time for this process to be completed can be several days, a week, or even more depending on the distance to be traveled, and whether or not utility companies have to be involved.

When the load exceeds 254,000 pounds gross weight, the application must also go through a structural evaluation by the Texas Department of Transportation, and possibly and additional evaluation by the Pavements Division. Time for these evaluations to be completed may require as much as one to two months.

While the dimensions of a superload and the time to process the permit application may vary from state to state, it is always advisable to plan ahead. Even while your cargo is still in the manufacturing stage, it’s not too soon to address the transportation phase of your project.

How are you fees determined?

Rates vary based on the commodity, origin, destination, size, weight, and equipment required. Our sales representatives will ask you for specific information, enabling them to calculate the most effective and economical means to address your needs.

Can I have a salesman call on my firm to discuss volume rates or project details?

We would be pleased to make an appointment, at your convenience, to discuss your volume transport needs or your project scope of work. Please e-mail our Sales Departmentand let us know when it will be convenient for us to drop by.
