GAL's Cross Border Trucking Triumph: From Malaysia to Singapore

Updated on 24/01/2022

Cross Border Lowbed Trucking

Navigating the intricate logistics of freight forwarding is an art we've mastered at GAL, and one of our most recent accomplishments involved an intricate cross-border trucking mission. The task was undoubtedly challenging, involving the movement of oversized machinery from Malaysia to Singapore, but our seasoned team was ready for the task.

The shipment in question was not insignificant - 2 trailers each 40 feet long, and 2 lowbeds, also of the same size. These vehicles were no ordinary freight trucks; they were specifically designed and purposed for the transport of large-scale machinery. It's a feat that would daunt most, but our experience and expertise in cross-border trucking allowed us to take the challenge head-on with confidence.

We utilized a lowbed trailer for this mission, a vehicle uniquely suited to the transport of oversized machinery. With a lower than average deck height due to two drops in deck, one right after the gooseneck and one right before the wheels, it allows the deck to be extremely low compared with other trailers. These trailers offer stability in transit and facilitate the transportation of tall items, allowing us to undertake shipments that other companies might deem impossible.

During the course of this project, we also deployed a lorry crane, specifically a 75-ton one, to load and unload the machinery at the site. A feat of engineering in itself, the lorry crane's agility and strength are critical in the safe and efficient transport of heavy equipment. Our commitment to using only the most appropriate and high-quality equipment underscores our dedication to providing the best service to our clients.

Even in the face of challenging conditions, our lorry crane performs exceptionally well. It's a testament to the skill of our operators and the robust training programs we implement. We ensure that every member of our team is well-equipped to manage even the most arduous tasks, be it inclement weather, tight delivery schedules, or the handling of delicate equipment. It's this commitment to excellence that helps us ensure that we deliver, no matter what.
