Transportation Partners and Logistics, LLC (TP&L) announced today that
it has acquired two new cranes to further its reach in transporting of
oversized and overweight cargo across the supply chain, including wind
power and oil and gas projects throughout North America. These new
purchases include a Liebherr LR 1300 SX crawler crane for its largest
distribution center located in Garden City, Kansas and a Terex HC 285
crawler crane in its Enid, Oklahoma location, which was purchased
through Wyoming Machinery Company. These acquisitions come as a result
of the company’s visibility into future projects, such as wind turbines,
where components are growing in size and will be to up to 62 meters in
length as early as next year.

“TP&L is pleased to announce these most recent strategic crane
acquisitions, as we are proudly an asset-based company, which will allow
us to better bid and win jobs because our equipment is our own and we
don’t have to rely on subcontractors to help us deliver the quality of
service we extend to our customers,” said Jim Orr, president and a
co-founder of TP&L. “As we look ahead to new opportunities and business
ventures, these cranes will help us continue to focus on moving, storing
and delivering our customer’s equipment on time and without error.”
With these recent purchases, TP&L will be able to extend its offload of
wind tower components and transformers from rail to truck while in the
yard, and will allow for exceptionally large equipment to be moved,
stored or delivered to the job site on time. These cranes include jibs
that will allow the company to diversify into new industries.
With recent expansion of its location in Garden City and additional
distribution centers in North Dakota, Oklahoma, Wyoming, Colorado and
Nebraska, the company serves multiple industries including wind power
with rail, port and trucking logistics support and management.
