Need Heavy Lifting

Transport Logistics Can Be A Challenging Industry 

As a famous United States Admiral once put it:

“The war [WW2] has been variously termed a war of production and a war of machines. Whatever else it is, so far as the United States is concerned, it is a war of logistics.”

– Fleet Admiral Ernest J. King, in a 1946 report to the Secretary of the Navy

Businesses that rely on impeccable logistics can feel like they’re in a war sometimes.

And at Innovative Transport Solutions, we take the logistics war seriously. 

2022 was a challenging year as the logistics industry began to settle out after the chaos of the previous two years, and 2023 has had its own set of challenges.

Hyperinflation, labor shortages, and a softer economy are still lingering as we approach the end of the year, but our clients are growing, and we’re helping them with real-time logistics solutions.

One of those solutions is heavy freight handling and storage near O’Hare Airport.

Heavy And Large Freight Handling Requirements Can Create A Specific Set Of Challenges For Shippers And Logistics Providers

So let’s look at an example to put it in perspective.  

Imagine that you need to unload a tiny house from a tractor-trailer, store it securely for a month, reload it, and deliver it on time and on budget.

That sounds like a tall transport logistics order. Special equipment and storage space required, right? 


At Innovative Transport Solutions, we can do that without breaking a sweat. In fact, we could handle three tiny houses at once without breaking a sweat. 


First, The Loading And Unloading Piece Of The Logistics Equation

The average tiny house weighs about ten thousand pounds, and our O’Hare logistics facility has a forklift, a “Big Red” Taylor forklift, that can handle loads of 30,000 lb (+). Now that’s a forklift!
