JoLo Delivers Oversized Manhole Covers for Design Precast & Pipe

77,000 LBS. | 15 FT. WIDE | 2 DRIVERS | 1 DAY

At Jones Logistics (JoLo), we know you need a good, reliable transportation provider to haul your precast concrete projects. That's why we have a team of heavy haul experts with a lot of experience moving a wide variety of oversized vessels.



A few weeks ago, our team took swift action whenever one of our partners, Design Precast & Pipe, Inc., requested assistance moving two electrical manhole covers. Each of the concrete covers weighed in at 77,000 pounds and 15 feet wide, putting these loads more than 20,000 pounds and 6.5 feet over the legal limit. 


Within two business days, our team devised a plan to move these manhole covers from Gulfport, MS to Pascagoula, MS. After looking to our network of carrier partners, we found two drivers with the right equipment and expertise to move and secure the loads before leaving the first lot at 6:30AM. The loads were successfully delivered, ensuring enough time to offload with a crane and an adequate amount of manpower to complete the offloading. 


At JoLo, whether we’re moving a 77,000-pound manhole cover across the bay or an 83-foot tank across the country, we take on your heavy haul challenges as our own. For us that means facing those challenges head-on and answering them with a thoughtful response from a person, not an algorithm or spreadsheet. It's a unique way of doing business, and we take pride in that.
