Innovative Technology Solutions
Coldiron Companies has implemented technology solutions for drivers to transport units either as singles, 2-ways, 3-ways or 4-ways. We also haul and transport large construction equipment as a brokerage utilizing regional contractors. Many of our drivers lease equipment from us so that their personal vehicle will be in tow enabling them to be dispatched to the next transport opportunity quickly and without added taxi or transport fares. This savings results in a better logistics solution, which keeps money in our customer’s pockets. The addition of a personal vehicle in tow eliminates costly dead-head that raises operational cost.
123 Boom Trailer
Over the course of many years of managing freight hauls, transports, recoveries and storage, the Coldiron Companies team determined that more efficient means would have to be developed to gain time efficiency and reduce driver labor. In the past, the technology used to deck and un-deck units was cumbersome and time consuming. Now, with Coldiron Companies technologies, drivers are able to transport units either as singles, 2-ways, 3-ways or 4-ways with a personal vehicle in tow enabling them to be dispatched to the next transport opportunity quickly, which results in a better logistic management dispatch system, which directly offers customers dollar savings and often eliminates the need for dead-head compensation and wrecker fees.
Forward Facing Boom (FFB)
Coldiron Companies began moving two condos with our patented 123 Boom Trailer, driving one truck and pulling the second truck backwards with the steering tires on the roadway. The driver’s personal pickup road in the middle between the two trucks as pictured above. We now have engineered and also patented our new Forward Facing Boom (FFB). This new approach allows both trucks to be facing forward with the driver’s pickup being towed and attached to the second trucks fifth wheel. This system delivers better aerodynamics and the availability to add a third truck if it is able to be decked, all without the need for a hoist or a wrecker providing bottom line savings. With both booms we are able to move 1, 2 or 3 trucks at a time.
