Heavy lift

We have extensive experience handling and lifting the most difficult of cargos. From mud pumps and large machinery, to pipe or other heavy cargos destined for break bulk, we are able to handle any project cargo regardless of size, scope, or weight!  Our in-house cranes and forklifts can lift up to 120,000 lbs. We have handled lifts in excess of 300,000 lbs. using additional crane resources for storage or bonded in-transit requirements.

Open top and flat rack containers

World Trade Distribution also handles the loading of special, heavy or out of gauge cargo onto flat racks or into open top containers. Every flat rack is meticulously loaded. We analyze and plan in detail the best way to load and secure your project freight to each flat rack or open top for damage free freight out turn to destination. Services such as project  freight consolidations and export freight management services are also available.

Pipe Shipping Techniques

World Trade Distribution utilizes a proprietary method to “containerize” delicate chrome and stainless steel pipe for loading into standard and open top containers. Our custom bolster racks and strategically placed air cushions offer stability and protection from scratches and other damages during handling, loading, transport, and unloading of pipe from container or flat rack. We also provide bundling or unitizing services for all size pipe whether for container loading or preparation for break bulk shipment.
