Shipping Industrial Equipment




As the construction sector faces unprecedented booms, the demand for shipping industrial equipment has increased, leading to increased demands for the transportation sector. Titan Transline specializes in the shipping of these essential goods all across Canada and the US. These units require meticulous planning and execution, as the transport of these specialized components demands attention to detail, adherence to safety regulations, and consideration of unique challenges such as oversized loads.  In this article, we will delve into the key aspects of shipping industrial equipment, focusing on HVAC systems and related units.


So first off, what equipment falls under “industrial” for the purposes of this article?


  1. HVAC SYSTEMS

HVAC systems play a crucial role in maintaining optimal indoor environmental conditions. Shipping these systems involves careful handling of components such as air handlers, chillers, boilers, and control systems. Proper packaging is essential to prevent damage during transit.


  1. ROOF UNITS

Roof units, including packaged rooftop air conditioners and HVAC systems, are commonly used in commercial and industrial settings. When shipping roof units, securing them to prevent movement and ensuring protection against the elements is vital.


  1. AIR UNITS

Air units encompass a range of equipment, from air purifiers to industrial air compressors. Packaging should account for the specific requirements of each unit, protecting delicate components from vibrations and shocks during transport.


  1. VENTILATION UNITS

Ventilation units, crucial for maintaining air quality and circulation, can vary widely in size and complexity. Proper crating and packaging are necessary to safeguard sensitive components like fans, motors, and ductwork.


Shipping any component of this complex and crucial system has many special considerations, and Titan Transline is here to help make the process seamless.


When shipping industrial equipment, how goods are packaged or crated is paramount. Titan Transline works with crating partners designed to build around your units, ensuring a custom fit for the best transport. Custom crating ensures your delicate equipment had adequate sock absorption for over the road transport, preventing even microscopic damage to your delicate machinery, as well as ensuring proper bracing and fastening to ensure even more secure transport. Crating also provides features to dampen vibrations, minimizing the risk of internal structural damage or misalignment. This is particularly crucial for equipment that relies on precision alignment, such as air compressors or delicate HVAC control systems. If your vents are being stored in Titan’s spacious warehouse, crating also protects your sensitive equipment from environmental hazards such as dust, moisture, or temperature fluctuations. 


Titan Transline ensures your industrial equipment will have all necessary documentation, permits, and certification for transport. As various government regulations in regards to building materials, HVAC systems, and green energy evolve, Titan will be there to guide you every step of the way. We will make sure your vents get on site in time. 


Titan Transline also ships oversized industrial equipment! Shipping oversized loads requires additional planning. Obtain the necessary permits, assess route feasibility, and communicate effectively with transportation authorities to ensure a smooth journey. Escorts and pilot vehicles may be necessary for safety and regulatory compliance.


Shipping industrial equipment, especially HVAC systems, roof units, air units, and ventilation units, requires a combination of expertise, careful planning, and adherence to regulatory standards. By addressing the unique challenges associated with oversized loads and focusing on meticulous packaging, documentation, and route planning, Titan Transline can ensure the safe and efficient transportation of your valuable industrial assets.


The shipping of industrial equipment is often very individualized, and Titan prides itself on offering one on one service for you and your load, ensuring you get the VIP treatment any time.
