Engineered Overland Conveyor
Made to Order Material Handling
While haul trucks can bring flexibility to transport applications, the short and long-term economic implications are causing operators to seek alternatives. In many cases, engineered overland conveyors (sometimes called “groundline”) are the most cost-effective method of transporting bulk material to processing plants or loading facilities.
Unstable fuel prices, permitting regulations, labor training and equipment maintenance all hit the pocketbook. As a result, more and more operations conduct feasibility studies into the use of overland conveyors for long-distance transport.
Calculations projecting the use of conveyors combined with haul trucks — or conveyors replacing haul trucks — support a dramatic return on investment following installation.
From head to tail, our overland conveyors are 100% Superior.
While most conveyor manufacturers outsource parts production, Superior uses our own ingredients. All the idlers, pulleys, scrapers and accessories – basically the operating components of your conveyor – are designed and built right here.

Most of the time, we rely on our dealers to stock Superior equipment. However, we typically have a small amount of factory stock.
