We use the term “transport engineering” to describe the process that we employ in each special transport operation
As a unique feature feature of our company, OCTRA has its own engineering department mainly composed by experienced Naval Architects and Civil Engineers.
But our engineering concept goes further. This process begins with the preparation of a specific transport plan for every shipment, through which we analyze, evaluate, calculate and optimize the most appropriate solution for each scenario.
Throughout their implementation, the plan is continuously updated and all the technical information is reviewed over and over again, with special emphasis on issues such as ship stability, lashing, ground strength and support surfaces on vehicles and vessels, crane capabilities, lifting methods, and so on. The process is complemented by the direct personal supervision of loading and transfer operations to be carried out during the transport to ensure that our transport plan and calculations made are accurately followed throughout the process.
