When is a consignment deemed “exceptional”?
A consignment is considered an exceptional consignment when it causes particular difficulties for fixed installations or for the wagons of one of the railways/RUs used, as a result of its outer dimensions, its mass or its nature and can therefore only be forwarded subject to specific technical or operational conditions.
