    INDUSTRIAL MACHINERY AND ROBOTICS

    Robotics and heavy equipment shipping can be a difficult job and it’s crucial that you choose a specialized carrier that is familiar and experienced with your hauling needs. However, this is one area where CRST STI’s depth of resources and vast experience brings great value both to the manufacturers of such machinery and the end users.

    Many industrial machines do not fit the description of common freight and require special handling and the need of blanket wrap services. Because CRST STI is asset-based, our resources can be adapted to accommodate even the largest or most unusual items.

      Rather than attempting to secure a complex machine in our existing trucks as they are configured currently, we can create a custom solution that guarantees safe, damage-free transit. This may include building an entirely new structure that secures the components of a machine.

      Timing the final delivery of robotics equipment or industrial machinery is critical. Mismatched schedules inevitably lead to lost efficiency, so our transportation solutions are developed to satisfy your timetable as well as that of the installer. Our experienced operators will work with the installer to properly remove the items from the cargo area and will even assist in light installation.

      Contact CRST STI to find out more about our industrial machinery and robotics equipment shipping.
