3 Types of Pumps Usually Shipped by Freight
FreightCenter can handle the transportation of various types of pumps, including but not limited to:
1. Centrifugal Pumps: These pumps are commonly used in industrial, commercial, and agricultural applications. They are efficient at moving fluids through pipelines and can be found in a wide range of industries.
2. Submersible Pumps: Designed for pumping liquids while fully submerged, submersible pumps are commonly used in applications such as sewage treatment, drainage systems, and deep well pumping.
3. Reciprocating Pumps: Also known as piston pumps, reciprocating pumps use pistons or plungers to generate pressure and move fluids. They are often used in oil, gas, chemical, and manufacturing industries.
Types of Trailers that Pumps are Shipped On
To ensure the safe transportation of pumps, FreightCenter employs various types of trailers, including:
Flatbed Trailers are ideal for transporting pumps too large or irregularly shaped to fit in enclosed trailers. Flatbeds provide easy loading and unloading options, accommodating different pump sizes and configurations.
Enclosed Trailers: When pumps need protection from weather conditions or require added security, enclosed trailers are the preferred option. These trailers shield the pumps from external elements and ensure their integrity during transit.
LTL or Full Truckload
Whether you choose less-than-truckload (LTL) or full truckload (FTL) shipping for your pumps depends on the size and quantity of the pumps being transported:
LTL Shipping: If you are shipping smaller pumps or have a partial truckload, LTL shipping is a cost-effective solution. With LTL, your pumps share trailer space with other shipments heading in the same direction, reducing costs.
Full Truckload Shipping: If you are shipping larger pumps or have a significant quantity to transport, total truckload shipping may be more suitable. The truck trailer is dedicated to your pumps with FTL, ensuring maximum efficiency and faster delivery times.
