What is the process we follow?


The client makes the transport request.

Heavytrans contacts a bonded agent, verifies the weights and measurements of the load, and assigns it an appropriate unit.

Note: All drivers and vehicles go through a selection and verification process that includes the following:

  • Review of criminal and judicial records and license points.
  • Presentation of complete and updated documentation (Registration, weights and measurements).
  • Delivery of operating permit, permits to enter ports and insurance policy.

The empty container is returned to the shipping company.
