October 20 - Project cargo forwarder, Ahlers India has undertaken a complex movement of dump trucks from Bangalore through Chennai port to Algiers, overcoming some unusual legal and regulatory issues in delivering the trucks to the quayside for export for
The eight trucks, each weighing close to 50 tonnes, were to be taken from India to Algeria on a chartered ship. Indian road traffic laws prohibit dump trucks from being driven on Indian roads. This required Ahlers personnel to remove the wheels prior to loading the truck bodies on low-loaders for the journey to the ship. Ahlers personnel then replaced the wheels prior to loading on board the ship.
