From the frigid temperatures and cold winds of Detroit, Michigan to the warm weather and sunny skies of Tampa, Florida, the first ever Ballistic Barrier from Ideal Utility Services has made its way down to the Sunshine State where it’s set to be permanently installed this week.

But it wasn’t as simple as shipping a package.

Ideal’s first full ballistic barrier was quite the load. Weighing approximately 42,000 lbs. each, five trucks loaded up, drove down and delivered the 454 feet of barrier in just a couple days, trucking through the elements to get to Tampa right on time to start the installation on Tuesday.

Check out what the freight looked like before it made its way down south:
