Trawl services

Transportation by trawl (special trailer, low-frame platform) is a very popular service in the market of Kiev, Ukraine, Europe, in connection with the development of markets and services that use oversized and heavy special equipment. It is important for dealers in agricultural machinery or factory managers or large enterprises that their machinery is delivered on time in a state of readiness (not disassembled). Therefore, for the transportation of oversized cargo (heavy cargo) order transportation by trawl.

Trawl services, trawl transportation 

A trawl is a truck in which, instead of a body or an awning, a low loader platform (special trailer) is attached to a tractor. The trawl has a very high carrying capacity, it is always equipped with low-profile rubber to reduce the height of the car along with the load, it does not have side sides. For the purpose of reliable transportation, the cargo is attached to the trawl with flails and cables. It is very important to correctly position a large load on a low loader platform. The company Trans-Auto-D has trawls of its own production, of various configurations in order to provide the most specific services of heavy and oversized transportation. The number of axles determines the carrying capacity of the special trailer. Small wheel diameters allows you to make the vehicle as low as possible with a load, expanders on low loader platforms can accommodate a wider load, and platforms with a telescope can make a long load.

Below are examples of our work both in Ukraine and abroad

The services of a trawl (semi-trailer) cost a little more than conventional truck transport, on average by about 30 percent. Because it is associated with multiple additional costs, or rather, large capacities of tractors, wear of not cheap low-profile rubber, as well as the specific nature of the service provided (the return trip of an empty trawl is often also paid). Large cargo sizes also add significantly to the cost of planning the route of transportation and obtaining permits. But, in spite of all of the above, trawl services are one of the most cost-effective way to deliver oversized cargo, when compared with rail or river transport. Buying your own fleet of tractors is a very expensive undertaking. As is usually shown in practice, the most cost-effective is the use of trawl services as outsourcing. The specialists of our transport company will offer the trawl service of the most suitable configuration, as well as save you from having to load your equipment with work throughout the year.
The company “Trans-Auto-D” has been providing trawl services since 2000. We are a reliable and inexpensive carrier of oversized equipment. We always strive to improve the quality of transportation services and the development of long-term profitable relationships with customers.

Low loader heavy trailers are used for transportation of road, agricultural, construction, industrial equipment or oil and gas equipment. The low loader semi-trailer is convenient for transportation of bulky and heavy cargo under different tunnels and bridges. The absence of sides on the platforms allows you to place equipment on them, the dimensions of which are much larger than the width of the platform itself.
When transporting large loads, the task almost always arises of overcoming many obstacles along the road, for example, low-hanging electrical wires, bridge structures, gas pipelines. A semi-trailer low loader or, as people say, a trawl, which is an open low platform with small diameter wheels, will help to solve this difficult task.
To summarize, I want to write that the transportation of oversized goods, like other heavy equipment, is not an easy task. Our company advises you to entrust the transportation of trawl to professionals in order to avoid difficulties. So you will safely, reliably and quickly deliver everything you need to your destination.

Thank you all for your attention, good luck and good mood, from the entire Trans-Auto-D team!
