Bigge's heavy transportation division recently hauled a 103-foot long refinery vessel weighing nearly 220,000 pounds from Texas to Northern California. The long-distance haul took approximately seven weeks to travel more than 3,000 miles across five states.
The seven weeks of drive time was only a fraction of the time spent in planning and coordinating more than 200 permits throughout Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California.
The vessel was hauled on a six-dolly beam and dolly transporter that was pulled and pushed by heavy duty tractors. The transporter configuration had an overall length of 185-feet and was 18-feet wide at the rear dollies.
