Germany-based Trans-Trading has coordinated the delivery of two 90-tonne locomotives from the port of Lübeck’s Seelandkai terminal in Germany to the port of Hanko, in Finland.

Each vehicle measured 19 m long, 3 m wide, and 4.4 m high.

The locomotives travelled by rail on their own axles from the manufacturer in Munich to the Seelandkai terminal.

At the terminal, Trans-Trading fixed its lifting gear onto mobile cranes. The locomotives were then loaded from the rail onto heavy-duty rolltrailers with transport beddings attached underneath.

Trans-Trading and Seelandkai’s port operater, Lübecker Hafen-Gesellschaft (LHG), worked together to ensure all safety measures for the load were met.

After the units were secured, dockers pulled the rolltrailers with the two locomotives onboard Transfennica’s vessel, Hafina Sea, for their onward journey to Finland.

Trans-Trading is a member of the XLProjects (XLP) network.
