Focus on your core business
We take care of the transport for you. Every industry works with specific machines and systems. Normally, the machine or plant is not needed at the place of production but starts a journey to its destination. Many systems also consist of individual components, which are assembled at the place of use to build a machine or production plant. Through our many years of experience, we are very familiar with it.
Our transport engineering team offers solutions for every situation
At Universal Transport, we specialize in heavy-duty transport in mechanical and plant engineering. We move mass with class - our strength is the diversity of our transport technology. Our vehicle technology is geared towards different demands for different sectors in machinery and plant engineering.
Heavy load logistics moves. Literally. An example: For one of our customers, we transported transformers from Nuremberg to Changij in China. The transformer alone is the heaviest single transformer in the world at 535 tons. The total weight of the heavy transport was 875 tons. That's the weight of 175 grown elephants. The first few kilometers from the transformer plant to the Nuremberg Bayernhafen took place in walking pace. Our colleagues from the project department in Nuremberg did perform great work here. On the company-owned premises plus storage area with lifting frame, which can lift weights well over 50 tones, the transformers were loaded onto a special barge.
Diversity is our strength - Heavy load logistics for the industry
In particular, a precise route control in advance is essential for successful heavy load transports. Our professional project management analyzes the route conditions for a safe heavy transport across Europe in advance. Good contacts with local police and authorities allow for precise arrangements for the smooth running of heavy transport. And not only do we work with the traditional truck, we also look for alternatives by water or by rail.
We support you in your project. No matter how and where the individual components of your machines and systems needs to be transported, Universal Transport will take care of it.
