Heavy Haul Services



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 Services 


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.

Heavy Lift Crane and Rigging Services

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.
