Imperial orders for Bochum

Imperial Logistics International has acquired three heavy-duty tractor units and seven heavy-duty trailers to support its logistics contract at a steel plant in Bochum, Germany.

The tractors units – Terberg RT223 models, on lease from the manufacturer and powered by six-cylinder 160 kW Volvo engines - are a replacement for the previous custom-built units, which have come to the end of their life cycle.


The trailers, measuring 9.5 m in length and featuring an 80-tonne payload, were custom-built for Imperial Logistics by Seacom Trailer Systems.


The vehicles carry up to five steel coils at a time, individually weighing up to 31 tonnes, with a maximum operating speed when fully loaded of 12 km/h.
