Cross-border cooperation is often necessary in a globalised world economy when companies manufacture clothing, vehicles, entertainment electronics and many other goods. This also applies to plants and machines designed and built to produce industrial and consumer goods. It is the exception rather than the rule if the components that are needed come from a single manufacturer or just one country.
Project specialists like Rhenus Project Logistics ensure that the complete plant or special individual components in machines are transported to their place of use punctually and without any damage taking place. We exactly plan the project logistics chain so that large cargo units, which come from more than one country, arrive at the place where they are needed on time. Some of the plant and machines that we have transported in the past include heavy generators weighing 380 tonnes, cranes and parts of a pressing plant, which weigh up to 300 tonnes. The pressing plant, which was built in China, shapes sheet metal panels into the bodywork elements for various vehicle models.
Project logistics always involves developing individual solutions in order to transport very large and very heavy loads. This is synonymous with battling with the physical limits of the individual modes of transport and their load capacities in planning terms. However, at Rhenus Project Logistics, we also handle the transport services for your plant and machines, if normal and curtain-sided articulated trailers are unable to do so. This calls for the use of low-loaders and heavy-duty axles on the roads – and we draw up other options to transport items by inland waterway vessels too.
We not only support the new construction of production facilities for industrial and consumer goods by delivering plant and machines. Rhenus Project Logistics supports your logistics requirements if you need to relocate a complete factory too. We organise both the transportation of complete plant and provide carriage for machines dismantled into their various components. Whether the factory is a new building or an old one being moved to a new location, we can also assist you by arranging the building site logistics.
