Wind turbines contain several thousand components. While most of them can be easily shipped across the country, turbine blades pose a major logistical challenge. Averaging 200-300 feet long, utility-scale turbine blades must be transported individually and in one piece. Titan Worldwide specializes in these heavy haul loads that require a high level of expertise as well as special equipment and permits.

Titan Worldwide Logistics was a pleasure to do business with. Extremely fast and reliable; provided competitive price, quality service, and most of all they communicated thoroughly. Had the pleasure to work with Jerrod Black, who stopped at nothing to make sure the process was seamless and our customers were satisfied, and their drivers were a good representation of the top notch service we provide. Very upbeat and professional throughout the entire process. Positivity is contagious and Jerrod makes sure that your experience is a positive one. Hauling in and out of refineries can be complicated but they made it easy. I definitely recommend their services! Ask to work with J Black. You wont be disappointed.
Meagan and Titan Worldwide have helped us with multiple fleet vehicle transports. She has wonderful communication and coordination when it comes to timely pickup and delivery. She has always been fast to respond with any request we have thrown her way. We 100% recommend Titan and look forward to using this for all of our transport needs!
Awesome team! Real problem solvers and great communication throughout the process of a couple of complicated freight moves. Highly recommend!
I have used Titan several times to transport semi-trucks and trailers across the country. I have worked specifically with Meaghan Mock and she is amazing. She asks all the right questions and is cool, calm, and collected. She is also very quick to respond to any questions or situations during the transport of the equipment.
Very Fast and professional work. Takes care of our high end clientele.
I used Titan Worldwide to hotshot a forklift from South Dakota to Wyoming and was very happy with their service. The pickup and delivery went smoothly, with no issues or hiccups. Our branch received their forklift within a day. The whole process was fast and easy, from the price quote to offloading. Big thanks to Ashley Hawkins. A+ service and professionalism.
Titan has been a great partner for all of my vehicle transport needs. Fast quotes, excellent communication, and competitive prices. I will always email Titan first! Meagan is always fast to respond and extremely helpful!
Great to work with, show up on time, know their business.
I work for a major insurance company, and Titan Worldwide has been our primary long haul provider for over 5 years. They continue to offer unrivaled customer service and reasonable pricing. Titan is capable of handling the most complex of jobs with expert precision. Meagan, in particular, has been wonderful. She is always available to provide bids, and does an excellent job of keeping us informed throughout the transporting process. I would highly recommend Titan to anyone in need of long distance vehicle hauling.
Titan is very communicative and great to work with. Providing the most affordable pricing to their customers and diverse in what they handle as far as heavy equipment freight goes. They're not scared to take on some new projects and get stuff done. Some of my favorite people to work with. If you don't work with em change that.
Titan Worldwide can arrange safe and efficient transportation for your wind energy project – from acquiring the right heavy haul permits to loading and delivering massive wind turbine blades on flatbed trucks.
Flatbed trailers are the most reliable means of wind turbine blade transportation, especially as the energy industry continues to manufacture larger wind turbines for maximum wind power – including longer blades. Flatbed trucks are long and low to the ground, accommodating the massive dimensions of wind turbine blades better than other transportation modes like trains.
Heavy Haul Permits
Most wind turbine blades fall into the superload category, requiring permits and surveys for every state they pass through. Acquiring these permits is a multi-step process, including an engineering route survey of bridges, highways, and potential overhead obstructions. Titan Worldwide specializes in transporting heavy equipment, meaning our team is familiar with the many requirements and precautions that come with wind turbine transportation.
Having the right equipment to transport wind turbines is only one side of the coin. You will also need to partner with a transportation company you trust to plan the route safely and efficiently, whether your final destination is only a short distance away or involves a complicated long-haul. Titan has extensive experience with oversized loads and we are more than up to the task!
Titan provides expert logistics solutions for your entire wind turbine shipment – from the turbine blades to the many small components that make up this large piece of equipment. We plan ahead to make sure everything you need for your wind project is delivered safely and on time.

Wind turbines contain up to 8,000 parts. The three primary wind turbine components are the tower, the nacelle (containing a set of gears and a generator), and the rotor blades.
How much does it cost to transport wind turbine blades?
The cost of shipping wind turbines will vary depending on the distance of the haul and the size of the turbine blades. Currently, it costs roughly $100,000 to $150,000 to pick up a fan blade from a port and deliver it to a wind farm. We can expect blades to get longer and heavier with continued investment in the wind industry as a renewable energy source.
Why are wind turbines difficult to transport?
Turbine blade lengths create many supply chain challenges including the need for specialized trailers and significant route planning, especially if it’s a long haul. Routes may need to include escort services and a plan for how to make it through narrow roads, tight intersections, or bad road conditions that become hazardous when carrying oversized equipment.
