Heppner handles oversized cargo shipment
Heppner was recently mandated to transport a 140 t, 26 m long cold box from the Fives Cryo factory in Golbey (France).
The French logistics provider organised an almost 48 m long convoy consisting of two tractors (one for pulling and one for pushing), a 15 axle modular trailer, a pilot car, a technical car, two guide motorcycles, as well as two police motorcycles. It took two days to cover the over 150 km long road leg to the inland port of Frouard (France).
The cold box was then loaded onto a barge and unloaded at the port of Antwerp, before continuing to its destination in South Korea. Thibaut Floquet, Heppner's overseas director "This large-scale operation demonstrates my company’s adaptability and know-how.” (mw)
