BigMove AG, a consortium of medium-sized heavy-load logistics companies, which operates throughout Europe, was contracted to transport an 86-tonne rotary drilling rig from Mannheim via the A9 motorway to the centre of Munich, where the construction of expanding the S-Bahn network is in progress. To deliver this heavy construction machinery the heavy-load specialists from BigMove relied on EuroCompact low-bed semi-trailer from Scheuerle. In addition, the BigMove heavy-duty logistics network has acquired 19 new EuroCompact generation vehicles.
During the development of this new model, the focus was on ensuring much easier handling to ensure faster and easier loading and unloading of the low-bed semi-trailer when compared to the previous generation of vehicles. Other requirements included reducing the semi-trailer’s dead weight to a maximum of 30 tonnes and decreasing axle loads.
“With the development and procurement of the new vehicles, the BigMove network has a particular advantage over its competitors. The EuroCompact “Chameleon II” model is easy to handle and can be flexibly used within the BigMove network due to its combinability. As a result, this enables us to fulfil the highest demands in heavy-duty transport assignments of all kinds,” said Horst Wallek, member of the management board at Wallek and Geser, a company that is part of the BigMove Group when summarizing the strengths of the new EuroCompact generation. “Moreover, the BigMove partners can easily exchange vehicles within the network without requiring any additional approvals. As the vehicles are completely identical in construction, the certificate of exemption applies to each of them.”
