Transportation & Logistics

Factory Plant Projects offers a wide range of transportation and logistics solutions throughout the UK, Europe, and beyond. Our services range from drop side, tail lift vehicles to four axle low loader vehicles to accommodate the smallest to the largest abnormal loads.

Nationwide Machinery Transportation Services

Quite often the services we carry out also require specialised transport as an essential ingredient and to this end, we have our own STGO Category 2 HGV’s with multiple trailer types and lorry loader crane vehicles. This way the nightmare of ‘no show’ or ‘late arrival’ vehicles are eliminated when ordered as part of ‘your plan’ as they are directly under our own control.

We are also available to offer a Nationwide ‘transportation only’ service should this be your wish. We are able to supply Load Notification orders (wide, heavy, and high) to facilitate the nationwide movement of abnormal loads. This may, where necessary, include escort assistance, which we can provide.


Factory Plant can help
with any transportation
challenges you may face

Equipment Assessment: The first step involves a thorough assessment of the load to be transported. This includes evaluating its size, weight, dimensions, fragility, and any special handling requirements.

Logistics Planning: Creating a detailed logistics plan is crucial. This plan outlines the route, transportation method (road, rail, sea, or air), scheduling, required permits, and any potential obstacles or challenges along the way.

Packaging and Securement: Machinery must be properly packaged and secured to prevent damage during transit. Custom crating, bracing, and cushioning may be required to protect sensitive components from shocks and vibrations.

Specialised Equipment: Depending on the load size and weight, specialised transportation such as extendable step frame low loaders (open and covered), cranes, forklifts, and rigging systems are used to load, transport, and unload the consignment safely.

Permits and Regulations: Oversized or overweight loads often require special permits and compliance with transportation regulations. Factory Plant Projects are well-versed in navigating these legal requirements.

Safety Protocols: Adhering to strict safety protocols is paramount. This includes proper load security, regular inspections of vehicles, and compliance with traffic and transportation regulations.

Communication: Effective communication between all parties involved—transporters, clients, and relevant authorities—is essential for a smooth and coordinated transportation process.
