ALS busy in Hamburg  

ALS Hamburg has coordinated the local transport of a 25-tonne mobile mixing plant.

The company used an extendable low loader to transport the component, which measured 15.1 m x 2.99 m x 4 m.

The company’s Hamburg team has also loaded two cases of industrial cable. One of the cases measured 4.5 m x 3.48 m x 1.4 m and weighed 8.5 tonnes, while the second measured 4.8 m x 3.48 m x 1.8 m and weighed 9.5 tonnes. 

In a separate project, ALS Hamburg arranged the transport of three oversized cargoes using low loaders. The largest piece measured 12.4 m long and weighed 31.4 tonnes. 

The cargoes were subsequently loaded onto a vessel for onward transportation to China.
