May 24 - V. Alexander Germany has coordinated the transport of dismantled cranes weighing 2,500 tonnes from China to Bogouchany in Siberia.
The largest pieces - the crane girders measuring 33 m long - posed the toughest challenge along the 4,500 km route. V. Alexander encountered heavy snow and icy weather systems and poor road conditions en route; the long girders required a special kind of fastening on their trucks due to overhanging lengths of almost 10 m.
The shipment was convoyed on 45 fully-loaded trucks to the Manzhouli Chinese border rail terminal. From there it was transferred onto 35 rail wagons and forwarded the remaining 2,500 km to Bogouchany.
V. Alexander Germany is a member of the Cargo Equipment Experts (CEE) network.
