BigMove expands fleet

BigMove, a European alliance of 13 medium-sized logistics companies, has expanded its fleet with the addition of 19 lowbed semi-trailers.

The vehicles, according to BigMove, have been designed to support the construction industry and can transport loads up to 105 tonnes. They can be deployed with a variety of axle combinations and feature a hollow rear trailer unit, which BigMove said can be used for the transportation of additional cargo, such as digger/crane arms.

A partially modular platform body with dolly trailer enables the use of three and four-axle trucks. The net weight of each vehicle is 41.8 tonnes.

“The vehicles are easy to operate and can be used flexibly within the BigMove network. As a result, we can meet even the most exacting demands in terms of heavy goods haulage,” said Olaf Beckedorf, ceo of BigMove. “The vehicles can easily be used interchangeably within the network – without us having to apply for any extra permits, as would usually otherwise be the case.”

In order to strengthen its network further, BigMove said it plans to focus its investments on semi-trailers and extendible trailers.
