OUR INTERSTATE VEHICLE TRANSPORT & FREIGHT SERVICES

Interstate Freight Services

Road Transport: The transport by road of goods, equipment, merchandise or material Australia-wide to service the requirements of our clientele. Tri State Transport provides numerous services to satisfy our clients & in turn their clients demands. From palletised freight distributed locally, to mining transport services, to over-dimensional loads Australia-wide, Tri State Transport provides a total commercial transport solution through its vast network of fleet assets & sub-contractors.

Tri State Transport’s operations are meticulously planned by only a few dedicated professionals. Our managers can provide both quotes and time-frames for pick up & delivery. Multi customer, general freight loads are then planned & scheduled to maximize payload capability. Satellite tracking is provided on all fleet assets to give our clients an up to the minute location as to the whereabouts of their freight.

With clients allocated to a dedicated manager in your state, our clients are provided with a single point of contact (within that managers team) and can effectively liaise with a member of our interstate freight team that actually knows what & where your freight is at all times. This allows our customers to prepare unloading sites with cranes or forklifts as to the requirements of the delivery. Additionally, our fleet drivers are also readily contactable & our clients can in fact talk directly to the driver if the need arises.

Rest assured, our interstate freight services are the best in Australia

Satellite tracking is provided on all fleet assets, so that our clients can access up-to-the-minute location tracking of their freight for peace of mind.

At Tri-State Transport, we are all about efficiency. Every client is provided with a single point of contact; who works directly under the dedicated manager within your own state. Not only does this keep things streamlined and straightforward, but it means you are liaising with someone who knows exactly what and where your freight is at all times.

This also allows our customers to prepare unloading sites with cranes or forklifts as to the requirements of the delivery. Additionally, our fleet drivers are readily contactable, and our clients can in fact talk directly to the driver if the need arises.

Commercial Vehicle Transport

We can also arrange specialised transport services; particularly tower cranes, heavy machinery and structural steel. Dedicated assets with years of experience in these specific fields can be provided.

Whether it’s a 22-metre extendable load of tower crane equipment; a 55-tonne excavator or a 44-tonne road-train of structural steel; Tri-Transport Services has got you covered.

Our fleet includes road-trains, with loading up to 3 x 45ft trailers, equipped with gates, tarps, timbers and load restraints Australia-wide. Tri-State Transport can provide permits and/or pilots to meet all State and Territory laws regarding oversize freight with a width greater than 2.5 metres or extendable loading freight with a length greater than 14 metres.

Trailer Configurations

Tilt Tray – a truck with a tray that can be tilted facilitating the loading of heavy machinery, such as:

  • Fork Lift Units
  • Cars
  • Tractors
  • Earthmoving Machinery
  • Positracks

Forklift Transport: The transport by road of forklifts & accessories Australia-wide (locally, intrastate or interstate), to service the requirements of our clientele.

Tilt Tray Services: The transport by road of machinery, equipment, 20’ containers or other general freight locally or intrastate to service the requirements of our clientele, whether it be for moving of freight but also freight requiring tilting or winch services. Vehicles or machinery may have been damaged and cannot be driven or in a hard-to-reach spot. The flatbed of the truck is lowered into a position where it can then be tilted, this then enables equipment/ vehicles or machinery to be moved onto the tow truck using hydraulics and electrics. We use this vehicle for all types of general freight.

Flat Top – an open-top trailer that is great for transporting large items. They can be loaded easily with a forklift or an overhead crane.

Drop Deck – with a drop deck, you can optimise freight capacity on both the upper and lower decks. With this design, it becomes useful for transporting tall items that would normally exceed the legal height on a flat top trailer.

Low Loaders – designed to drop its height for the transportation of taller heavier machinery without necessarily requiring a permit.

Tautliners – These trailers have curtain sides that protect your freight during transport. Ours have a drop deck and mezzanine floor which accommodates those taller items.

Extendables – capable of being expanded for the transportation of a non-standard load that exceeds the length of a normal flat top trailer.

B-Double – a trailer combination that is sometimes confused as a road train. However the second trailer mounts on the rear of the first trailer by a fifth wheel coupling.

Road Train – a long combination vehicle that consists of two or more trailers linked together by a dolly. It is used to move road freight more efficiently than a single trailer.

QUARANTINE LAWS WESTERN AUSTRALIA

The Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia, through Quarantine WA, enforces quarantine laws that must be considered if you plan to move/transport freight into WA. Items may need to undergo quarantine treatments prior to entry, or will require inspection on arrival in WA.

Some items may even be prohibited entry into WA. Undeclared personal effects, containers, vehicles & machinery will usually be placed under quarantine for inspection which may result in delivery delays.

Tri State Transport is a certified Quarantine Facility for the Department of Agriculture & Foods WA & therefore can safely & securely hold freight at its depot until Quarantine clearance. For more information, please visit www.agric.wa.gov.au

REGULATIONS FOR OVERSIZE LOAD

We often get asked “when is a load classed as oversize?” Unfortunately every State is not uniform and compliance with regulations set by the various State Governments is important.

Therefore we have set out below, tables and requirements for each State to make your understanding easier. Further guidelines can be obtained from your State Government Main Roads Website.
