First superload collaboration completed between GTI USA and Precision

First superload collaboration completed between GTI USA and Precision
When one of our operating unit GTI USA’s longtime clients approached us with a unique challenge, GTI USA and Precision Specialized worked together to make it happen.

About the Client
A U.S.-based global food, agriculture and bioindustrial corporation

The challenge
Other forwarders and carriers had tried and failed to move this load across the road.

Load details
Rotary drum / industrial dryer
Dimensions: 41’ x 13’ x 13’2”
Weight: 305,186 lbs.

The outcome
GTI USA reached out to fellow operating unit Precision Specialized for assistance in planning and managing this move. Precision developed a transportation plan to move the dryer and together, GTI USA and Precision presented the plan to the client. Our client accepted the plan on the spot.

Scope of work
Route: East Moline, IL to Regina, SK

  • Modular trailer to transport the dryer two miles away to the railside
  • Load and secure dryer onto railcar
  • Transport by rail to Regina
  • Unload railcar
  • Transport by modular trailer six miles to client site

Thank you to everyone involved! It was a true team effort, and we look forward to more opportunities to collaborate in the future.
