Precision work for a heavy load transport

Thrills galore during transportation of a ship's hull and top deck using a modular platform trailer

Spedition Kübler recently transported a 140-tonne hull and top deck of a ship. In order to exploit every millimetre of height during the journey, Kübler did not use the swivel bolster during the transportation. The hull of the ship was instead rigidly positioned on the trailers, securely lashed and moved using 30 SCHEUERLE InterCombi axle lines. Just how this huge rigid unit consisting of vessel and vehicles was safely and reliably transported with great precision on the InterCombis, in spite of all the challenges such as roundabouts, tunnel and driving on the wrong side of a motorway, can be found here:
