Transportation and logistics for wind energy projects is a complicated process due to the massive size of turbines, blades, generators and nacelles. Moving a 200,000-pound generator or a 50-meter blade is no easy feat, no matter the distance you need it to travel. Transporting such massive pieces of equipment requires coordination with local transportation authorities and permits to transport oversized loads. Another challenge is finding drivers that have the qualifications to pilot vehicles that can transport wind energy equipment.
When importing or exporting wind energy parts and machinery, strict coordination between suppliers, project managers, freight forwarders and local authorities is imperative so that parts don’t sit at ports, wasting time and money. Whether you are shipping heavy wind equipment across the country or overseas, Global Shipping Services has the capabilities to manage your project from start to finish.
