Our client can manufacture your custom HDPE dock or float to almost any requirement or configuration. These pontoons can be used in salt or freshwater but first they need to get there!
For those who have dealt with the logistics of transporting an oversize or overweight product, you know where we are going here. Last month, Phoenix Truck & Crane was tasked to transport and launch a newly built 18 feet by 60 feet floating dock, at Grant Narrows landing in Pitt Meadows. The 12,000 pound piece left our customers yard at 3 am, a few hours after receiving the transport permit from the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure.
When presented with projects that are so involved, we learn new ways to best navigate the systems; and these jobs which require extensive labour & logistical planning, keep our internal team busy for weeks. To better understand what it take to secure the ability to transport these types of loads of such loads, we’ve listed the most important elements to remember:
The prep work for projects of this scale may seem overwhelming, but be assured our team at Phoenix handles all planning required. And when executed correctly the results are very rewarding and the project is completed on schedule.
Below you’ll find a video and photos of our 60Ton crane launching the dock into the water after being transported by our trailer.
