Heavy Engineering & Steel Components

Collett & Sons are highly experienced in the heavy transport of steel castings, components and abnormal loads specifically for the heavy engineering sector.

Heavy Transport & Heavy Lift, Steel Castings & Forged Steel

Having successfully completed numerous heavy engineering projects over the years we have the knowledge, expertise and specialist equipment to assist manufacturers in delivering heavy castings, steel components and engineering cargoes.


As the heavy engineering industry pushes forwards with new and innovative components, Collett are at the forefront of the heavy transport industry investing in new fleet acquisitions specifically to accommodate these steel castings and abnormal loads.

Our fleet of specialist trailers includes low & semi-low loaders, beam trailers, wafer decks and multi-axle hydraulic modular systems up to 3,500 Tonne capacity in 2-,3- or 4-file configuration. Added to this are our Self Propelled Modular Transporters (SPMTs) and our 550 Tonne capacity girder bridge, which is specifically designed to carry transformers and steel castings.  All this specialist equipment and our expertise in the industry ensures that we can provide unique logistics for these valuable steel elements. 

Oversized Cargo Permits & Regulations for Heavy Transport

Our Heavy Lift Team can oversee all lifting requirements for these engineering components.  Our crane hire and contract lift services provide an ideal abnormal load solution for portside delivery, vessel loading or for final delivery and positioning.  

For the import & export of these engineering components, our two heavy lift storage facilities in Goole and Grangemouth offer the facility to securely store your cargo ahead of transhipment.

From the chartering of vessels and abnormal load heavy transport we have the knowledge and experience to expertly handle the collection and delivery of industrial steel components and heavy engineering cargoes on a worldwide basis. Be it delivering transformers and structural steel directly to an awaiting vessel portside, overseeing shipment throughout Europe, delivery from foundry or positioning on site.

Collett will ensure that these valuable cargoes are delivered safely and on budget to their required location.
