Exceptional consignments

Too high, too wide, too long, too heavy ...
We devise tailored solutions for transport of your exceptional consignments or for vehicles that are not licensed for transport.

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.
