It is common opinion that getting something „from A to B“ is quite simple. However many clients do not realise that in Europe and even in Germany sometimes the devil is in the details!
For this reason the BTG Neuss project department – under the direction of Herbert Fuge – had to work flat out in May of this year, in order to meet the requirements of our client KHD, Cologne for their transport order.
The order was to collect two gear units in Novotroizk/Russia and transport these to Poland and then later return them to Russia.
Looking at the following details, it will become apparent that we’re talking about abnormal loads here:
(Main gear unit)
420 x 295 x 368 cm, 66,207 kg
(Small gear unit + 2 cases) 360 x 162 x 347 cm, 10,096 kg
210 x 100 x 108 cm, 1,840 kg
75 x 66 x 68 cm, 218 kg
The gear units had to be transported with two special vehicles to the Russian port of St. Petersburg. From there the units were transferred to MAFI tractors and loaded on to the ferry going to Gdynia/Poland. On arrival the units were loaded on to two further abnormal load vehicles.
In addition to the transport-technical requirements such as exception permits, analysis of the driving route, transport escort and various interaction points with handling capacity, it was mainly the subject of “customs formalities”, which called for special attention.
In agreement with the client, this order was handled in the context of IPR (inward processing relief).
The specialists of BTG Neuss Project Department took care of the exact declaration and documentation, which is necessary for the Russian export and import process.
For this particular abnormal load transport, the Project Department was able to contribute its experience and expertise for the benefit of the customer.
