Heavy Haulage - Australia

From major infrastructure projects to generalised transport of over dimensional freight, we offer heavy haulage solutions designed to safely transport oversized structures and equipment around the corner or around the world.

We provide multi-modal heavy haulage services for a range of over-dimensional structures, pressure vessels and machinery for customers within the infrastructure, mining, power, construction and renewable energy sectors.

We will work with you in the planning of each project to help ensure timely and effective completion, no matter how challenging the geography or how complex the move.

Custom transport solutions for over dimensional freight

From construction and mining equipment to portable buildings, we have the specialised fleet to provide a wide range of heavy haulage services for payloads exceeding normal capacity.
