Logisticus Group just wrapped a major study in which we analyzed 19 locations (substations) for a utility customer, as part of a wide range of customizable, “white glove” services we offer the utilities sector. One of these utilities-focused services we provide is the Emergency Transformer Transportation Support Guide. Learn more about this offering below.
Our array of capabilities in this regard is unmatched in the industry – which is why we’ve recently been designated as Enterprise Wide Heavy Hauling and Lifting Carrier of Choice for a Top 10 Utility Provider.
Since 2012, Logisticus Group has delivered over 1800 MW of power components/generators, and successfully planned and executed over 19 GW of power plants through North & South America.

PHASE I: Pre-assessment ⇢
In this phase, we receive component weight and dimensions, as well as origin(s) and destination(s); then evaluates best possible route options and known risks. We also:
⇢ Review of component specific information to identify the best transportation mode option(s).
⇢ Identify potential routes, railroad options and sidings, and optimal equipment needed to perform the job.
PHASE II: Physical Assessment ⇢
We deploy our team to conduct a physical assessment of all potential routes, and to identify any impediments along the way. This includes:
⇢ Physical review of roads, bridges, rail siding conditions, overhead obstructions, turn radii, etc.
⇢ Meeting with local authorities and DOT to review transit options against physical review.
⇢ Identification of any civil improvement(s) necessary for transit.
PHASE III: Emergency Support Guide ⇢
Logisticus then creates and disseminates the Route Study Report that details the nuances of the route and acts as a playbook for emergent/planned outages. This guide also consists of the following:
⇢ Comprehensive, multi-level guide outlining steps to be taken to best fast-track transportation.
⇢ Details of recommended mode(s) of transportation, as well as associated risk levels for each, relative lead times, and permits required.
⇢ Ability to file for rail clearance(s) that can be valid for up to 1 year.
