November 10 - Universal Transport has organised and executed the transport of a large freight platform, comprising of an upward telescopic scissor table and a roller conveyor system.
The platform was manufactured specifically for the Airbus A300-600ST Super Transporter or "Beluga", which celebrated its 20th anniversary in September of this year.
The transport of the platform, which had the dimensions 25 m x 7.3 m x 4 m and weighed more than 100 tonnes, began at the shipper's premises in Hamburg, from where the cargo was shipped to a Lower Bavarian port on an inland waterway vessel.
At the port, the cargo was unloaded onto a trailer and transported about 68 km to Maching airport. The cargo was escorted by three accompanying vehicles, two sign vehicles, one Steiger vehicle and a number of police patrol cars.
