The cyclical nature of the oil and gas industry is well known. Investment in new or existing infrastructure is what drives the oil and gas breakbulk market, but such investment is typically dictated by demand.

Heavy and/or oversized equipment, safety and security implications, and delivery lead times are just some of the challenges facing those working in the industry. Today, these challenges are often heightened by financial and political volatility, fluctuating demand and regions with inadequate infrastructure.

As a result, logistics costs might not be the first thing that spring to mind when considering ways to prevent disruption to maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) schedules. Our ocean transportation can help avoid costly logistics challenges by supporting the reliable and timely delivery of your products.

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.
