PrimoCargo use the latest 3D infrared laser range finding technology to conduct surveys and plan heavy and oversized transport of cargo. Using a specially fitted vehicle, a 3D model is created of the proposed route that includes street signs, trees, road curvature, overhead clearances and other potential obstacles. This allows PrimoCargo to precisely design an oversized transport and remove much of the uncertainty involved in moving large obstacles through densely populated areas.
