C.H. Robinson Meets Challenge to Deliver Large Wind Turbines

C.H. Robinson Project Logistics recently assisted a valued customer with transporting 33 large wind turbines from a distribution yard in Garden City, Kansas, to a new windfarm located near Kintyre, North Dakota. Their expert wind team worked tirelessly to organise the 680mi (1,100km) journey which required over 260 truckloads utilising 56 specialised trailers.

7 of the 33 wind turbines, including 3 blades, 3 tower sections, 1 machine head and 1 hub, were delivered as quickly as possible, with the additional 26 turbines delivered later. The project totalled 74,408cbm (6,531.2mtn) of cargo with the largest piece transported being the blade which measured a huge 50.20 x 2.92 x 3.64m.

More than 50 private police escorts were required to transport the OOG cargo (as per various state permit regulations) with 2 of C.H. Robinson’s experienced project logistics experts, acting as an extension of their customer’s team, present onsite to manage and oversee the aggressive delivery schedule to ensure the success of this enormous project.
