More and more often, industrial companies are turning to Aertssen for the delivery of very large factory parts. We recently provided a supply of parts for the new air separation plant for a factory in Ghent.

Given the very large dimensions and weights of the components, we developed a multi-modal solution to address the problem of transporting them to their destination. After the parts were transferred from the ship onto our truck, the truck was driven on a pontoon. This was the only way that the truck could be manoeuvred around the Ghent harbour, as it was much too large to drive to the destination. Because permits for the transport of exceptional loads are becoming increasingly difficult to obtain, transport scenarios like this one will be more common in the years to come. This will mean new challenges for us!
