No successful heavy goods transport without a prior feasibility study

Heavy goods transport

Before we start planning a transport, we prepare a well-founded feasibility study.
While serving as a basis for decision-making with regard to considerations of time, safety and cost, this feasibility study also provides important parameters and information about the entire project, such as the transport route, transport mix, route tests as well as the often critical aspects at the loading and transhipment points.


Authority and permission procedures are a special challenge

Heavy goods transport

Before heavy goods transport can get underway, sections of the route must be inspected, bridges checked for their condition and permits obtained.
We have been working in a very reliable and well-prepared manner with the relevant authorities for decades.


Special permits often constitute a time constraint

Heavy goods transport

Timely application for special permits is also often crucial in the successful execution of heavy goods transport. As Projektcargo has an overview of all the legal options within Europe, we are happy to take care of this task for you.

Transporting the sensitive rotor blades requires the highest level of professionalism, from equipment to customs formalities


Numerous factors have to be taken into account when planning and executing transport and re-erection: weather conditions, special considerations for securing in place, use of special equipment, transport routes, calculation of curve radii. Projektcargo organises the entire transport chain, including customs formalities.
