Mining and Construction Equipment

Ahlers provides value-added services such as studies to optimize shipping costs by removing wheels, cabs, buckets, or other parts. By doing this, units can become less out of gauge, or even in gauge which can considerably reduce transport costs.  

We not only help you to optimize the costs of transportation but also the speed of crossing land borders (from China to Central Asian countries, for example) e.g., by making tracked units ‘self-driven’.
Ahlers can provide special silicon protectors, tailor-made for specific models, and with these protectors, units can be driven across the border, saving time and handling operations.

The road to success having the right expertise

Each model of machinery we transport will have different dimensions and weights. As these will often move through remote areas and use different modes of transport, Ahlers will work together with you to protect your equipment from external factors and theft in the best possible way.

Examples include protection of windows and windshields, removal of mirrors and lights, removal of batteries, and shrink wrapping or waxing of equipment prone to rust. Upon arrival at the destination, our team can also prepare the machines for delivery. This can include battery charging, paint touch-ups, washing, and re-assembly of various components.
