Excellent Container Trucking Or Prime Mover Services
Pollisum strives to provide our clients with excellent prime mover service or container trucking service. We aim to accomplish this in two essential steps.
Understanding Your Requirements
To find out which type and how many container trucks are needed for the job, we would need to understand your requirements and needs. This is because different container trucks may be more suitable for different cargo. Simply let us know your requirements and the job details so that our personnel at Pollisum can advise you better and prepare a no-obligation quotation.
At the end of this stage, Pollisum will be able to specify the types and number of prime movers or container trucks needed for the job and a quotation will be sent to you.
Arranging Trained Drivers And Applying For Permits
Once the quotation is agreed on, we will arrange the prime movers or necessary container trucks and licensed drivers for the job. This way, you can rest assured that your cargo will be in good hands. If the cargo is oversized, we will apply for the Oversized Vehicle Movement (OVM) permit and provide police escort trucking services.
Large and heavy cargo slow down traffic and affect road structures due to their large size and heavyweight. As such, they would require a police escort. With the auxiliary police escort, the safety and convenience of other road users and the safe transport of the cargo will be ensured.
Our prime mover service extends beyond the delivery of cargo. In addition to arranging and scheduling the prime mover drivers, Pollisum will also apply for any permits that are required and manage the paperwork for you. We believe this will make your experience with our prime mover service a seamless and stress-free one.
We also provide project logistics relating to oil & gas logistics, power plants, infrastructure development, factory relocation, road infrastructure, marine and government related projects such as LTA and HDB.

Frequently Asked Questions About Container Truck Rental/Prime Movers & Project Logistics In Singapore
What Is The Difference Between Container Trucks And Trailer Trucks?
Container truck is a semi-trailer where an intermodal container can be mounted on. At Pollisum, we have various types of container like reefer container, open top container for big cargo, ISO tank container for chemical and oil and standard container.
Reefer Containers are containers that are designed to maintain the temperature, humidity and atmosphere of the container at a constant value throughout the delivery process. It is usually used for the transportation of fruits and vegetables, meat, milk and dairy products and pharmaceuticals.
Open top containers are containers that have an open top covered by a tarp instead of a solid roof. It is used to transport over-height or over lengthy cargos.
ISO containers are built based on ISO standards and are designed to be used for carrying hazardous or non hazardous liquid. These can be for transporting chemicals and oil.
On the other hand, trailer trucks do not require a container and are more suited for items which do not need to be contained. For example, machinery, steel pipe, prefabricated prefinished volumetric construction (PPVC) cargos.
What Is The Maximum Weight A Container Truck Can Carry?
At Pollisum, our container trucks can carry between 25 tons to 70 tons, depending on the type of chassis used or cargo.
Will I Have To Pay More If My Cargo Requires A Police Escort?
Yes. The additional cost is due to the need to arrange an auxiliary police officer to perform the escort, applying for a permit and a specialist to plan and survey the route.
What Type Of Cargo Does Pollisum Handle?
We handle end to end from freight to transportation to lifting operations where we provide our very own lifting team and engineers. We can handle a wide range of cargo such as oil and gas tanks, air tanks, large power cables and systems, heavy machines and transformers. Contact us to know more!
