  The on-road transportation of cryomodules (CM) is a critical phase during which the structure may be subject to relevant dynamic loading. Thus, an accurate design of Transportation Tool (TT), equipped with a proper suspension system, is mandatory. In this paper the TT design for the PIP-II proto SSR1 CM is presented. A finite element (FE) model was developed considering the main CM parts. However, the full model was not suited for the design of the suspension system because of its computational time. Thus, it was exported as a Modal Neutral File to a multibody (MB) software, where minor components were modeled as rigid bodies or lumped stiffnesses. The reduced MB model considerably shortened the computational time and it was exploited for the design of the TT, which includes helical isolators (HI) acting as a mechanical filter. A real 3D acceleration profile, acquired during the transportation of a LCLS-II CM from Fermilab to SLAC, was used to validate the TT effectiveness in reducing the vibrational loading. In addition, the results of the MB analysis were used to perform FE analysis of critical components, such as bellows.
