SimsHD expands fleet

SimsHD has expanded its capabilities with the acquisition of a heavy haulage trailer fleet, including a USD3 million Trail King 24-axle dual lane trailer.

The company, part of Sims Crane & Equipment, also acquired a 200,000-lbs (90.7-tonne) capacity perimeter trailer and a 160,000-lbs (72.5-tonne) capacity straight trailer.

“The addition of these high-capacity trailers provides SimsHD with greater flexibility in adapting our moving solutions to each specific project,” said Dean Sims II, vice president of marketing at Sims Crane.

“For example, the Trail King [trailer] can expand and distribute its load across one, two or four travel lanes which helps reduce load bearing on bridges, and additional equipment can expand it up to 40 axles. This makes Sims Crane a major player in the super-heavy hauling business.”

SimsHD has already utilised its Trail King trailer to transport a 400,000-lbs (181.4-tonne) Hyundai power transformer in Florida, USA.

According to Sims, the addition of a heavy hauling trailer fleet is part of SimsHD’s long-term business plan and allows the USA-based company to transport heavy loads over public roadways.

“While our Goldhofer SPMTs can be outfitted for transportation over public roadways, they have limited ability to secure the load. The Trail King can support a load from beneath or be reconfigured to suspend a load hanging from the bridge beams,” Sims said.

“It has been our goal from the beginning of SimsHD to provide full-service logistics for highly specialised transportation and placement of industrial equipment,” added Sims. “Our concept for SimsHD starting with its launch in 2012 was to diversify Sims Crane and broaden our product and service offerings to our clients.”
