Heavy transport

The company has over 90 years of experience in the transport of abnormal, special, and heavy loads. Lubbers has the right knowledge and expertise to transport your heavy or special transport needs safely and reliably. 
 
What is heavy transport?
Heavy or exceptional transport is the transport of goods that do not comply with the regulations for standard road transport in terms of length, width, height, and/or mass. If more transport has to take place, a permit for exemption must be requested. Lubbers can offer a suitable solution for these complex transport needs within Europe. 
 
Whatever you need to move, we can deliver.Good preparation is half the battle; with thorough knowledge, the right material, people, we relieve the customer as much as possible and transport the goods from A to B as quickly as possible. Everything from one location with fixed contact partners for the customer.  
 
Flatbeds, mega’s, step decks, and low loaders. The large diversity in the number of axles and extendable lengths.Our special transport/heavy transport fleet consists of extendable flat trailers, semi-low-loaders with 3 to 7 axles, and low-loaders. These vehicles are equipped with continuous "standard” exemptions from the countries within our network. Due to the variety of Lubbers’ vehicle fleet, we are the solution for high and heavy loads. Lubbers’ vehicle fleet consists of 130 trucks and 380 trailers. In addition to the standard exemptions, we have an extensive network of agents who can provide the necessary exemptions as fast as possible, which enables us to respond quickly to the customer's wishes. 
 
Ready for anything heavy with large dimensions. Wind turbine components of 30 meters long, 50-tonnes prefabricated concrete beams or 20-me­tre high storage tanks? You name it, we move it. Our experts are fully trained and highly qualified for any exceptional transport. From single flatbed loads to complex, multimodal projects. We take care of route surveys, transport engineering, permits & documents, supervision, operating manuals, and project management. We can move to a maximum weight of 100 tonnes and up to a length of 50 meters. 
 
Safety
All our motivated and qualified drivers are trained according to European safety standards and regulations. The fleet is equipped with GPS systems so that we can inform customers about the location of the goods up-to-date. QHSE, simply part of our DNA We grew our business in a market with extremely high Quality, Health, Safety, and Environmental standards: the oil & gas sector. We proudly bring that level of operational excellence to all of our clients and their sector-specific needs. This is reflected in the certifications we hold: ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001 en AEO.

dangerous

Your dangerous goods in safe hands

We know and strictly follow all local and international safety & security guidelines for handling and moving dangerous or hazardous cargo.

Our specialized solutions for Dangerous Goods Transport qualify for all 9 classes (including Class 1 Explosives and Class 7 Radioactive Material). All our drivers, advisors and partners constantly stay up to speed on current regulations and technical developments.

Decades of experience and knowledge in specialized ADR road transport ensure the high level of dedicated expertise required by air and ocean customers and carriers.

lifting & hoisting

Just leave the heavy lifting to us

Our specialist truck mounted loader cranes can be mobilized in no time. We handle cargo up to 20 ton with an outreach of up to 32 meters. Thoroughly trained and experienced, our operational staff is supported by professional engineers and project managers. Together they always find a safe solution for any project.

In case of heavy lift or oversized cargo we work with strategic partners in telescopic crane services, throughout Europe.

packaging

For smooth transits and safe delivery

Use our packaging services to prepare your cargo for further transit. We offer shrink wrapping, boxing and crating services to get your cargo ready for carriage by road, air and ocean freight.

In all our facilities handling equipment like forklifts and crane mounted trucks guarantee a quick mobilization. We can add (safety) stickers or customized markings to your cargo to ensure smooth transits.

route survey

We clear the way for out of gauge

You don’t want any surprises when moving exceptional cargo. That’s why we offer a route survey service for out of gauge transportation and bigger project mobilizations. This technical study includes inspecting the planned route, taking measurements and organizing pruning.

We use the gathered information to advice about possible risks, what equipment to use and which permits are needed.

storage & handling

Managing your stock in the EU

Whether you need indoor or outdoor, long or short-term storage, we can manage your stock in the UK, Netherlands, Denmark, Italy, Germany, Romania, Turkey and Norway.

With heavy handling equipment such as forklifts and cranes, we easily store materials like drill pipes, casings, tubings, frames and reels and any other engineering equipment.

oversized

Specialists in unusually large transport

Across the globe we are ready for any special transport with unusually large dimensions. Such as a wind turbine component of 30 metres long, a 50-ton prefabricated concrete beam or a 20-metre high storage tank. It’s all in a day’s work for our experts.

With such complex projects, thorough preparation and skilled project management is essential. We take care of transport engineering, job preparation, permits and documents, transport supervision and operating manuals.

permits & escorts

Carefree passage for special transport

When goods or cargo exceed legally prescribed dimensions and masses, special transport arrangements must be made. We can arrange all necessary permits. And we own specially equipped vehicles that are required to escort oversized or heavy cargo.
