Ahlers Projects and the cargo they handle, both built for challenges

We transport on average 2 oversized pieces of machinery every day of the year

Excavators, bulldozers, skid-steer loaders, haul trucks … You name it, we transport it. At least that is what we have been doing every business day for the last year.  

And it looks like 2020, despite the COVID-19 impact, will bring us even more truckloads of heavy equipment transports. It is tough at the borders, but we are coping!

“When you ask us for a solution, you can be sure we find one! A batch of 75-tons excavators dismantled and sent to Kyrgyzstan by trucks. Lowbed semitrailers, local workshops, customs clearance, and expedition - every part of our service we strive to perform immaculately!”
says Dmitry Akulinichev, Director General at Ahlers China.

The transport of heavy-duty vehicles is of course complicated because of the dimensions of the machines. But what also must be considered, is the destination. These types of trucks are specially designed for executing construction tasks, mostly in earthwork operations. Not the most accessible places to say the least.

But thanks to the Ahlers experts worldwide, we carried out transportation from and to the most distant locations in China, Russia, Korea, Central Asia, Europe, and the Baltics, by rail or road, depending on dimensions and urgency of delivery. When it comes to project cargo, this is as standard as transport can be. A blessing in disguise when you ask the Projects and Machinery team at Ahlers.

“There is nothing standard about project cargo, “says Vyacheslav Koltyshev,” Country Manager at Ahlers Central Asia: “And we must never start to think otherwise. But I’m proud to say that over the years we have developed a series of procedures that help us tackle even the biggest challenges.”
