January 17 - Dutch materials handling and specialist heavylift transport hire company Ex-tra has added a 53 m long trailer to its hire fleet, suitable for the transport of extremely long loads.

This trailer joins the largest fleet in the Benelux countries in terms of numbers and models, says the company.

Ex-tra believes that many transport operators are postponing investment decisions due to uncertain market conditions and also the difficulty in financing transport equipment, especially the more expensive special transport trailers.
