A combine harvester, often referred to simply as a “combine,” is a versatile and highly efficient agricultural machine used for harvesting various grain crops, such as wheat, barley, corn, soybeans, and rice. It performs several functions in a single pass through a field, combining the processes of harvesting, threshing, and winnowing.
Types of combine harvesters
Conventional Combine Harvesters: These are the standard types of combines used for harvesting a wide range of grain crops like wheat, barley, oats, and soybeans.
Rotary Combine Harvesters: Rotary combines are known for their higher throughput, reduced grain loss, and better performance in wet or high-moisture conditions.
Axial-Flow Combine Harvesters: Axial-flow combines are known for their gentle handling of grain and are particularly favored for harvesting soybeans and other specialty crops.
Small Grain Combine Harvesters: Specifically designed for smaller fields or farms with less acreage.
Rice Combine Harvesters: Designed specifically for harvesting rice paddies, these combines have modifications to handle the unique conditions of flooded fields and the specific requirements of rice harvesting.
Corn Combine Harvesters: Corn headers or corn-specific combines are designed to efficiently harvest maize crops.
Specialty Crop Combine Harvesters: For crops like pulses, lentils, or other specialty grains, specialized combine harvesters are available.
MOVING Combine Harvester ACROSS THE COUNTRY
Transportation of heavy cargo, heavy equipment, and industrial machinery from state to state or across the country employ various methods to ensure safe and efficient delivery, including:
- Railway Transport: Economical for moving bulky machinery across vast distances without urgent deadlines.
- Road Shipping Methods:
• Flatbed Trailers: Commonly used for large machinery, ensuring secure anchoring.
• Semi-Truck: Suitable for medium-sized machinery with route flexibility.
• RGN (Removable Gooseneck): Ideal for tall machinery with a detachable front.
• Lowboy and Gooseneck Trailers: Suitable for moving tall and heavy machinery.
“Oversize load” signs and security vehicles are common for transporting oversized equipment.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING OF Combine Harvester
International shipping of the heavy machinery and cargo requires a thorough strategy to navigate the complex issues associated with international logistics, including compliance with international shipping regulations, customs procedures, and logistics management across vast global distances.
Atlantic Project Cargo offers clients expertise in both ocean freight and air freight:
- Ocean Freight:
• RoRo (Roll-on/Roll-off): Cost-efficient for wheeled cargo.
• Flat Rack Shipping: Utilizes open-sided flat rack containers for oversized machinery.
• Container Shipping: Suitable for smaller machinery or components.
• LoLo (Lift-on/Lift-off): Utilizes cranes for non-drivable items.
- Air Freight:
While being a more expensive alternative to ocean shipping, air freight is a viable option for the time-sensitive shipment of heavy and oversized cargo.
FACTORS AFFECTING THE COST OF Combine Harvester SHIPPING
- The weight and dimensions of the equipment significantly affect the price.
- The transportation distance also factors in, with longer distances incurring higher costs.
- The choice of transportation method, whether by land, sea, or air, can impact the cost.
- Import and export duties, taxes, and insurance also affect shipping costs.
