Normal sized shipments have a max. width of 250 cm when loading by forklift (when loading by crane 243 cm) or heights between 240 and 270 cm – depending on the vehicle construction. If the transport goods exceed these measurements, special-purpose vehicles are necessary. These are available with tilt cover construction (adjustable in height and/or width) or without cover construction (however normally with loose cover).
We can also provide you with telescopic vehicles, to transport shipments with excess length.
For individual weights over 25 tons we can also provide you the appropriate vehicles which are suitable for heavy loads.
We or our partners on-site also arrange for the following:
- Obtaining of permits for oversized and heavy loads (as far as possible for these permanent permits are existent, which saves about 1-2 weeks of time)
- Organization of accompanying vehicles
- Fulfillment of other obligations which arise from the special permits (i.e. disassembly of traffic lights, traffic signs or lamp posts to drive on certain road sections with oversize vehicles)
We can also offer oversized and heavy loads within Germany or Europe-wide – certainly also, if our region or Germany is not included in the transport route, as we have access to the according vehicles throughout Europe (i.e. also for transports from France to Italy)!
