In the spring of 2015 our office in Plochingen once again put its expertise in the field of heavy and oversized transports to the test.
Our long-standing customer, Oskar Frech GmbH + Co. KG, known as one of the leading manufacturers of warm- and cold-chamber die casting machines, die casting moulds, automation equipment and complete solutions for the die casting industry, entrusted us with three heavy-load transports within one month.
The cold-chamber die casting machines DAK 720 measuring 880 x 230 x 285 cm – weighing 33,300kg and DAK 880 measuring 935 x 240 x 295 cm – weighing 36,800kg were transported by special low-loader via the French ferry service Toulon – Istanbul, to the final destination in Istanbul/Turkey. BTG’s service included the complete customs-technical export procedure, as well as coordinating everything with the local consignee.
Shortly thereafter, BTG was also entrusted with the transport of the „big brother“ machine, the DAK 1600, measuring 580 x 250 x 290 cm and weighing 61,000kg. In addition, four more full truckloads of dismantled machine parts were transported on the trip directly to the construction site in Uxbridge/Great Britain.
The requirements of the authorities for these oversized transports included police escorts and even some bridge closures. However, this was no obstacle for BTG and the machines were all transported intact and on schedule to their final destinations.
In recent years BTG Plochingen has been able to earn the trust of renowned world leaders in the construction equipment and mechanical engineering industry sector for their abnormal and heavy load transports.
Our customers appreciate our commitment, know-how and the flexibility of our staff!
Let us convince you.
Put us to the test!
