With over 35 years of experience, Evans Transportation is well-equipped to meet your transportation needs. We develop turnkey solutions for every client to safely and efficiently transport project cargo of any size.
Rail shipping is often the most economical solution for North American land transportation of oversized and overweight cargo. Due to the distinctive challenges presented by oversized rail, Evans’ experienced professional logisticians will review your shipments and determine if rail is a suitable mode.
Evans’ experienced professionals will evaluate your cargo to determine the best modal solution. This could mean moving your oversized and overweight shipments over the road. With newer technology available to many heavy haulers, it has become more feasible than ever to move large and heavy freight over the road. Our team will customize a transport plan to navigate your cargo through any challenges presented by the size or weight of your freight. Evans will coordinate with our core network of heavy haul and super load transport providers as well as local, county and state authorities to perform all permitted route studies, bridge engineering and analysis and civilian, local and state police escort requirements.
Barge transportation is often required for cargo that exceeds size and weight restrictions for over the road or rail transportation. This shipping mode is beneficial as it is cost effective, environmentally friendly and a safer way to move freight while reducing road congestion. Barge transport presents many unique factors such as river accessibility, navigable vs. non-navigable waterways, water velocity and depth, suitable dock access and offload accessibility. Evans’ experienced logisticians will review your cargo as well as your shipping origin and destination locations to determine if a multimodal solution that includes barge transportation is the right choice for your shipment.
Not all modal choices are capable of moving your freight directly from point A to point B. Oftentimes it may be necessary to pair a minimum of two modes of transportation to successfully deliver oversized and super load freight to the final destination. Evans’ experienced professionals will assess your cargo specifications to determine the optimal modes of transport and incorporate crane and rigging solutions to seamlessly transition your cargo from one conveyance to another. Evans will also assist in loading, offloading and setting your cargo in place at the final delivery location. In the event your delivery site is not yet ready to receive, Evans will provide interim storage options including handling into and out of storage.
One of the most critical parts of the transportation process is planning. With the detailed advance planning provided by Evans, you’ll be able to look at the bigger picture, foresee and circumvent possible obstacles and provide accurate information to your customers. This will ensure your loads are delivered safely and on time.
