ConocoPhillips has called its first witness, Terry Emmert, whose father started Emmert International 45 years ago. That's the firm Conoco has hired to move its four megaloads from the Port of Lewiston to its Billings, Mont. refinery. Emmert is testifying about other giant loads his firm has moved, including moving several large buildings. He said Emmert moves 700 to 1,000 loads per year, large and small. "We have never lost a client's load," he said.
Emmert showed and explained a diagram of the trailer configuration and helper dollies proposed to be used in hauling the ConocoPhillips megaloads.
