Altius transports a 150-ton excavator to China
On this job Altius was responsible for preparing, organizing, and supervising the inland transport, port operations, and RoRo shipment of a 150-ton CAT6015B excavator. The point of origin was the supplier's facilities in Spain and China was the destination.
The knowledge of the road constraints and the port and shipping operations, combined with a solid and high level of service, allowed Altius' RoRo team to complete the shipment in a very short time and meet the zero incident target.
The main unit measured 8.6 x 4.9 x 4.75 meters and weighed 90.6 tonnes. It was loaded using a modular trailer with a 3+2+4 beam configuration. Due to height restrictions, the air filters and stacks had to be disassembled for road transport and reassembled once in port, so that the unit could be fully operational and ready for a quick RoRo transshipment transport. The spare parts were loaded onto generic transports and carried on a 13-metre trailer.
Thanks to having a team at Altius 100% dedicated to RoRo projects, this shipment went smoothly and without incident on both sides.
