What is cotton picker?

Modern cotton pickers are highly advanced machines equipped with various mechanisms and technologies to efficiently harvest cotton. 

Two types of cotton pickers

Spindle Pickers:
Basket-type Spindle Pickers: These machines use rows of rotating barbed spindles that revolve at high speeds.

Inline-type Spindle Pickers: In contrast to basket-type spindle pickers, these machines don’t have a basket or onboard storage.

Strip Pickers:

Stripper Harvesters: These machines use rollers or bars fitted with rotating spindles or brushes to strip the cotton bolls from the plant.

MOVING COTTON PICKERS 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 COTTON PICKERS

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 COTTON PICKERS 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.
