Special transport required? Heavy freight? Definition: Whenever weight, width, length or height of transported goods exceed the allowed limit according to the law it’s called a special transport. Consequently permission is required for each of these transports.
Heavy freight – the challenge
There is a lot to consider. Even in the planning you have to proceed precisely and carefully in order to find the best possible available route.
In preparation of the transport you have to check exactly which vehicle is suitable for the transport, too. Therefor a lot of technical know-how is required. Which tractor truck is the right one? Or which trailer?
Subsequently transport permissions must be obtained which requires a wide spectrum of knowledge by the person in charge.
Furthermore the planner has to investigate in detail if any obstacles are expected on the designated route. Urban traffic lights and signs are only one example. Sometimes they have to be removed for transports.
Heavy freight – worldwide transports
Of course not the same laws apply to every country. That’s why a lot of special knowledge is required in this regard, too. By the way, Pfaff Logistik is a full professional when it comes to transports to Russia and even owns an office in St. Petersburg.
Transports by several modes of transport
