Transformers are essential components of the nation’s power grid and require a high level of expertise for proper transportation. Large power transformers (LPTs) in particular involve long manufacturing lead times and millions of dollars worth of investment – these oversized, but fragile, pieces of equipment can’t afford to be damaged during transport. From smaller distribution transformers to large power transformers, Titan Worldwide has the heavy-haul and superload expertise you need to make sure your power project is completed safely and on time.

Large power transformers are extremely heavy loads, easily reaching hundreds of thousands of pounds. Successfully delivering these crucial pieces of equipment requires a transportation company familiar with heavy-haul, oversized, and superload shipments – including all necessary permits, specialized equipment, and best practices for safe and timely delivery. Heavy haul involves much more than sending a qualified driver on the road with your freight. Our team of logistics professionals works on your behalf to ensure your project is on budget and arrives safely.
Depending on the dimensions of the transformer, transportation may require extensive route planning to coordinate road closures, escort vehicles, and other aspects of heavy haul or superload delivery. Over-dimensional cargo demands meticulous planning to assess narrow, steep, or winding roads, low bridges, and other road transport obstacles. Titan Worldwide provides expert logistics planning for shipments going to and from anywhere in the United States. Contact us today to get started!
Due to the massive dimensions of large power transformers, they have to be delivered on a specialized flatbed trailer, such as a girder frame trailer. Titan Worldwide has extensive experience with heavy-haul shipments, oversized loads, and superloads. Our team can determine the proper equipment for your transformer – as well as arrange efficient delivery of your shipment to its final destination.
Toxic Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs) are no longer used in modern electrical transformers, but older pieces of equipment sometimes qualify as hazmat shipments. Our team of seasoned employees, including the fully-trained truckers we choose, will ensure that every hazmat truckload receives the care it demands and that all regulations are followed to the letter.

Large power transformers are shipped overseas on ocean vessels and moved carefully by crane between different modes of transportation. Once new transformers arrive at their country of destination, they are transported to the substation via a specialized railcar and/or specialized flatbed trailer.
Transformers must be shipped with extreme care to avoid damaging internal components during handling and in transit. Even if there is no visible damage, this does not mean the transformer is in working condition. To track hidden damage during the transportation process, transformers can be shipped with impact recorders.
Are transformers considered hazmat?
It depends on the condition of the transformer and whether there are unsafe levels of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Modern transformers use silicone oils or mineral oils instead, but older transformers can still be contaminated with PCBs – affecting end-of-life transportation and disposal.
What is the difference between power transformers and distribution transformers?
Distribution transformers convert voltage from transmission lines into power to be used by commercial or residential buildings. Distribution transformers are available as single-phase or three-phase transformers, and are either pole-mounted or pad-mounted.
Large power transformers have a much higher kVa than distribution transformers, and step up or step down voltage for transmission over long distances. These transformers are also significantly bigger than distribution transformers, weighing 200,000-800,000 lbs.
