Breakbulk shipment

Fossil fuels have powered global economic development for more than a century. Whether lighting our homes or moving machines, natural gas, oil and coal have long been the bedrock of our energy supply. However, as we all strive towards a more sustainable future, the move towards renewable energy has gained momentum – and investment in this green sector is only set to continue.

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.
