Our team at Hevi Haul recognise the need for project management when it comes to planning your next haulage. Great importance lies in the successful management plan for heavy haulage activity for everything to go smoothly.
Why is transportation planning important?
Heavy haulage projects require a great amount of planning in order to be executed correctly. Haulage planning involves such things as the initial consultation and arrangement of appropriate vehicles. It is essential the size and weight of the delivery is registered so that the necessary haulage machinery can be booked for the job. Route analysis and transport logistics for the path the transportation will take is also a crucial step. When carrying oversized loads, things like turning corners and going under bridges must be considered. Risk management must also be discussed in the early planning stages to ensure safety of all workers as well as for the machinery. Communication between the heavy haulage provider and the client must be clear and concise when discussing the transportation project management plan in order for all parties to succeed.
What all goes into transportation logistics?
There is a great deal of thought that goes into haulage planning logistics as it needs to be as safe and to the book. Determining an insurance plan is key before the delivery day to keep everyone and everything safe and protected. Sorting out with your haulage company project manager the right insurance for your oversized load is part of the logistic planning. Determining the regional route planning and route determination is a key part of the transportation project management plan. Being on top of potential roadblocks or closures ahead of time, as well as obtaining any necessary permits if traveling across borders is a must. Permits can be achieved through liaison with Government Departments. On the more practical, hands-on side of the plan, organising the transport equipment, as well as considering the loading and off-loading of the delivery is crucial. Will the delivery need cranage, jacking or skating? If so this is something to include in the project management prior to the transport day. These are just some of the many logistical that need to be communicated before the day of transportation.
