Yacht transportation by trawl: how to organize it?

It is not easy to organize complex transportation of oversized cargo on your own. To do this, you will need not only to negotiate with a large number of teams and specialists, but also to issue a package of documents and permits. The specialists of the logistics company will help you save time, money and nerves. In this case, we tell you how the "TEK Operator" organized the transportation of unusual cargo for a regular customer.

Task

We were approached by a Client with a difficult request. He needed to transport a large boat from Irkutsk to the city of Zeya in the Amur region. But not just to transport, but to organize everything "turnkey": starting from loading from the water, ending with unloading at the place of operation of the vessel.

The boat itself was waiting for transportation at the pier, i.e. on the water. And this was the main difficulty: it was not easy to load from the water, special equipment and a well-built loading algorithm were required.

Decision

Employees of our road transport department found local specialists in Irkutsk who have extensive experience in such loading operations. They took on some of the work involved in lifting the boat out of the water and loading it onto a car trailer. Before starting the process, we carefully prepared and agreed with the Client and the contractors a step-by-step plan, which included:

1. loading technology,
2. loading date and delivery time,
3. getting permission,
4. transportation route,
5. unloading technology and cargo acceptance procedure,
6. reporting.

After thinking through and agreeing on all the nuances, we started collecting the necessary documents, including a mandatory permit for the transportation of oversized cargo. It was possible to issue it a day earlier than the maximum period of receipt.

Transportation of oversized cargo on a trawl

On the agreed day, TEK Operator specialists coordinated the actions of crane operators, slingers, the truck driver and the Client's representatives. The complex loading went well according to plan-without problems and delays. Slings were attached to the crane and brought to the boat, lowering it as much as possible into the water. Slingers manually from the boat spread them several pieces at the front and back of the boat and released them. The slings sailed under the water and ended up under the boat.

When the most difficult stage was passed, the final task remained: to complete the loading. The crane slowly lifted the boat out of the water and lifted it over the car. By this time, a special metal structure was already installed on the trailer, on which the boat was carefully installed.

The cargo was carefully secured to the trailer, then the parties finalized all the necessary documents, after which the driver moved out on a long journey. After seven days, the boat was successfully unloaded at the Customer's facility.

The customer was satisfied with the speed of transportation and the quality of the organization of the process. After all, the owner of the cargo spent a minimum of time and effort. The TEK Operator team has extensive experience in organizing such transportation. We will help not only to deliver oversized cargo on a trawl, but also to solve difficulties with its loading/unloading, as well as obtaining permits. And we congratulate the Client on the long-awaited purchase and wish that the water transport served him for a long time, reliably and brought only positive emotions.
