It definitely takes a fleet of trucks, personnel, pilot car escort vehicles and the right equipment to haul a 600,000 lb. load across country. Early Wednesday morning, September 16, a few Martin city residents got to see to a phenomenal sight as Perkins Specialized Transportation Contracting hauled this unidentified object along Highway 18 heading west. PST is a long-distance superload transport service based out of Northfield, MN. The company is approved as a Tier 1 National MCEP (Motor Carrier Evaluation Program) carrier for the U.S. Department of Energy to haul nuclear waste and low-level radioactive components from decommissioning sites throughout the USA.
