What does special transport mean?

Special transport is a specialized form of freight transport that is aimed at transporting exceptionally large, heavy or unusually shaped cargo. In contrast to standard transport, special transport often requires tailor-made solutions to ensure the safe and efficient transport of these special loads.

Planning special transport is a complex task that requires in-depth knowledge of the cargo, legal regulations, technical requirements and possible obstacles on the transport route. Special vehicles, support vehicles or even roadblocks are often required to ensure that such transports run smoothly.

How much does special transport cost?

The cost of special transport can vary greatly and depends on various factors, including the weight, size, distance and destination of the shipment. The shipping method, urgency and additional services such as insurance, notifications or special handling also play a role. With negotiating skills, more favorable conditions can be achieved for regular or larger shipping volumes.
