Why is AMP Specialized Logistics Different

By | freight Services, NewsUpdates

What makes AMP Specialized Logistics different than our competitors?  The difference is that we don’t use a better approach to our marketing strategies.  We prefer to use the word ‘different’ because we are not trying to outdo our competitors in the trucking industries.  We don’t get involved in the competition of logistics.  No longer do I believe in the competition of the transportation industry.  I believe in what makes us different by stepping outside of the box and showing a different approach and facts of how we keep the awards coming in and customer satisfaction.  This, we believe in and we are confident in.

Below are what makes AMP Specialized Logistics ‘different’ in the world of transporting freight:

  • Each carrier and driver in our system has been verified on safety approval.  We only use the safety-approved carriers/drivers on our freight.
  • Our carrier database is 50,000 plus giving us a wide range of drivers to use for those multi loads as our database continues to expand daily.

Lowboy trailers are a type of flatbed trailer configured to haul very heavy loads in excess of 55,000 lbs. Trailers used primarily for heavy haul equipment are open trailers constructed with a “gooseneck” that drops the trailer height below the level of flatbed trailers and designed to handle extremely heavy loads. The lowboy trailers are slowly being replaced by the removable gooseneck also known as an “RGN” due to their limited functions. The lowboys are used for heavy equipment hauling companies but do not have the removable goose neck capability or functions to retract down to ramps and having the the equipment driven up in to the well.

In some cases of extreme weight of over dimensional design a heavy haul carrier may fabricate and construct to move a specific load of freight on a one-time or short-term basis.

We are Expert Heavy Haul Logistics Providers

Frequent freight moved by United States based companies requiring heavy haul trucking companies under escort on highways include giant boilers and pressure vessels commonly used in the industrial processing industries, industrial plants, prefabricated sections for construction projects, giant power transformers, turbines, and houses (generally made of timber).

Some of the products and equipment lowboy trailers are used to transport are:

  • Heavy Construction equipment
  • Oversized Heavy Equipment
  • Heavy Military equipment

For Heavy Haul transport, an overweight load is a load of freight that exceeds the standard legal weight limits for a specified lane on highway. There are also weight per axle limits. A load that exceeds the per-axle limits, but not the overall weight limits, is considered overweight.

Examples of oversize/overweight loads include construction machines (cranes, front loaders, backhoes, etc.), pre-built homes, containers, construction elements (bridge beams, generators, windmill propellers, rocket stages, industrial equipment).

The standardized dimensions and weights vary between countries and regions within a country. A vehicle that exceeds the standardized dimensions typically requires a special permit which requires extra fees to be paid in order for the oversize/overweight vehicle to legally travel on the roadways within the cities as permits are required to travel in the lanes. The city permit usually will specify a route the load must follow as well as the dates and times during which the load may be able to travel.

The safe and expedient delivery of your cargo is AMP Specialized Logistics top priority. With the industry’s best logistics experts and drivers, we have the skills and tools necessary to carry out your flatbed trucking needs from start to finish.

Flatbed trailers are versatile open trailers used to transport a wide range of products and materials. Also known as flat, float, flat deck, and high boy trailers, some of the common products they are used to haul are:

  • Flat steel
  • Coiled steel
  • Channel steel
  • Oil Pipe
  • Building materials
  • Pre-cast concrete
  • Construction Equipment
  • Steel Beams

Flatbed trailers are also known as floats. The flatbed lengths come in 53′, 48′ 45′, 40′ and 24′. The most common out there is your 48′. The 53′ trailers are becoming popular but statistics would prove there to be more of the 48′ on the road. The widths of the trailers usually run about 102″ wide. However, you might run in to a trailer that is only 96″.

It is very important that you know the dimensions of the commodity before setting up the driver for the load. The last thing you need is a truck order not used, an angry driver and an upset customer because you did not send in the correct trailer to handle the dimensions and weight. The height of a flatbed is generally 60″ off the ground. Most flatbeds can scale 48,000 pounds and some can scale a little more and some a little less. It just depends on how much their truck and trailer weigh.
