Transporting long goods, such as steel, or bulky goods, such as window profiles, poses particular challenges for transportation. These challenges are due to the length, weight and dimensions of the transported goods.
Particularly with transports to Spain, the goods are on the road for longer than with national transports. Close communication with you is therefore important in order to deliver your goods to your customers at the agreed time (just-in-time, JIT) and in the correct sequence (just-in-sequence, JIS).

We look forward to your inquiry!

Dangerous goods

Due to the dimensions or weight of window profiles or long goods, the following points often need to be considered and clarified when planning shipments to Spain:
  1. Weight and size restrictions
  2. Transhipment ban – In many cases, the goods have to be transported directly from the manufacturer to Spain, France or Portugal, with several unloading points.
  3. Coordination of the entire logistics chain, from a single source.
  4. Suitable frames such as A-frames for window profiles.
  5. Clarification of safety risks in order to avoid accidents.
