The most spectacular wide load transports

Most of us know the situation when you are shopping at IKEA and once you start loading everything into your car it seems to be much smaller than you had thought while you were in the store. Same goes for the Christmas tree. It appears to be so much bigger now that you’re trying to fit it into the back of your car.

Well, transport or logistic professionals and engineers cannot afford this kind of surprises. Everything has to be checked and measured in advance, authorities have to be notified, bottlenecks such as bridges have to be taken into account, roads have to be blocked. There are lots and lots of preparation work behind each of the following pictures and we would like to express our appreciation and respect for the men and women who were involved.

Together with its transportation vehicle a Giant transformer and its transporter vehicle together weigh 640 tons, even more than the space shuttle and are over 100m long. It took an expert team 9 months to plan and 20 people staff to accompany the transport on its way to the Docks in Bristol, where it was being shipped to Cottam power station. More
