In the busy logistics and transport industry, accidents can happen. These accidents can slow down businesses and cost money. If a cargo load spills or is compromised, getting things back on track as quickly as possible is critical.
We specialize in fuel spill recovery, cargo load recovery and heavy-truck recovery, but sometimes duty calls and requires something more! In this incident, we had to do a little electrical work to fix a refrigerated trailer.
On December 27, 2021, another incident with a load of potatoes required extensive semi-truck cleanup—a semi-truck hauling a full load of taters overturned near Sumner, WA. The truck went into the ditch, and its potato load went in with it, scattering mashed potatoes at the scene.
Team Pro-Enviro went to great lengths to save a client’s perishable cargo during a tractor-trailer accident recovery back in October 2020. The container had flipped over on its side, and there was damage to the refrigeration system, causing a leak. We got the container safely to our storage yard, where we took extraordinary measures to keep the unit cool and the cargo frozen.
In this incident on May 9, 2022, an open flatbed trailer carrying a load of glass panes lost its load. Most of the cargo fell off while the trailer was in a parking lot and made a big and dangerous mess. The company lost about $45K of glass and needed Team Pro-Enviro to take care of the glass cleanup.
In this incident on February 6, 2019, Washington State Patrol called Team Pro-Enviro to help with a significant box truck recovery. While on route with an international box truck destined for the Philippines, the driver hit a 6-point bull elk and lost control near Preston, WA. Unfortunately, the elk didn't survive, and while the driver was okay, the accident left them stranded in snowy and icy temperatures.
In this incident, on January 12, 2019, Team Pro-Enviro was called to Kent, WA, to help with an emergency cargo reloading. Team Pro-Tow also came to help with the transport back to a nearby trucking terminal.
In this incident several years ago on July 1, 2016, a semi-truck tipped over and spilled its cargo at the edge of the road. Team Pro-Enviro responded with a cargo reload service, as spills don’t always involve fuel and oil! In this instance, product boxes needed to be cleaned up and reloaded.
