Aviation

Building an aircraft requires extreme precision and attention to detail – which is how we approach our aviation shipments.

Aviation

The rapid growth of the global middle class and an unprecedented appetite for travel means the aviation sector continues to soar. Another major driver for the industry is the need to switch to new more fuel-efficient aircraft in order to maintain a competitive cost base. Both of those factors explain why OEMs have lengthy order books and why there is significant pressure on their supply chains. Therefore, the delivery performance of OEM suppliers is key.

Wings ready for shipment

We serve several segments of the aviation industry and can accommodate a wide variety of products - from wings, engines and fuselag to helicopters and helicopter blades. With our engineering experience and creativity, we have designed a range of handling methods that avoid equipment that requires empty repositioning, while ensuring safe ocean transportation. In addition, our liner service provides regular and punctual delivery of your sub-assemblies from factory to factory, which facilitates just-in-time and cost-efficient production.

Multi-Purpose Bogie (MPB)

The Multi-Purpose Bogie (MPB) is our latest invention. They are used in pairs and are suitable for long cargo up to 140 tonnes. The MPB can be fitted with different kind of attachments depending on the cargo. For instance, railed beams for trains and locomotives or a 22 m transport platform to create a roll trailer which can be maneuvered from both ends. The turntables, of the MPBS, can also be connected together to create a short, light version of our Samson trailers. The Samson light is suitable for generators and transformers.
