What is a Forklift?
Often referred to as a tow motor, a forklift is a powerful industrial vehicle used primarily for materials handling within warehouses, factories, and other work sites. Equipped with a “forked” device in front, it can lift and transport heavy loads over short distances. Forklifts operate on electric power or internal combustion engines and come in various sizes and capacities tailored to the industry’s specific needs. Their mechanical proficiency and versatility make forklifts an essential piece of machinery in the construction, manufacturing, and logistics sectors.

MOVING forklift 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 forklift
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.
