The road transport of abnormally large and heavy loads is a
specialist business requiring a high degree of planning and some
very big trucks and machinery. This programme shows in detail four
such movements. In Switzerland Friderici is seen transporting
massive wind turbine sections from the port of Basle to the highest
point on the Jura Mountains. Mercedes, MAN and Iveco units hauling
Nicolas, Broshuis and Faymonville trailers undertook this
challenging journey. In America, Ohio-based Diamond Heavy Haul was
moving one of its more spectacular loads. The huge casting was
hauled out of the port of Indiana, offering the sights and sounds
of Peterbilts, loud Jake Brakes and a DHH powered trailer. The
British haulier Plant Speed operates sophisticated Volvo FH 16 8x4
tractor units to move the heaviest loads. CPP was fortunate to
catch one of these moving a twin-hull ferry from Keswick to the
port of Workington. French transport specialist Brame P regularly
moves heavy loads from Belfort to the port of Strasbourg. CPP
captured the unusual sight of two massive loads each with a tractor
unit at the front and a 'pusher' at the rear!
