Shipping Construction Equipment for Growing Cities

North America is a big place with a lot of wide open space, and with a lot of open space there is a lot of room for expansion.  Cities continue to sprawl out from their centers and with that kind of growth comes the need for excavation and construction.  When new neighborhoods are built it’s not like the equipment needed to level the land, haul off dirt, or dig basements is already there.  It has to come from somewhere.

As cities grow, they usually spread outward, and often follow the contours of the land.  Geological features such as lakes, hills, rivers, and even railroad grades can affect just where things are built.  But one thing is generally certain, wherever you are building is going to require a way to get your equipment there.  Trucking is crucial in new construction.  Whether it is bringing in new construction materials or hauling out demolished materials trucks are necessary.

Over-sized construction equipment cannot simply be driven in on its own. Some pieces of equipment are not even self-propelled! Due to weight limits for bridges, the structural integrity of asphalt, and simply the hazard of creeping along in a large, dangerous piece of equipment, you will need trucks to haul in these vehicles and equipment.
