Heavy Haulage Sectors

With a vast range of crane equipped trucks and trailers at our disposal, we are pioneering a ‘total transport concept’. For instance, we self load, transport, self offload cargo, install equipment when required. Thereby, eliminating the cost and timely use of multiple mobile cranes (in ports, at intermediate storage locations and at site).
