Girder Bridge Transport Lift

The UK's leading Heavy Transport Company, Collett have successfully completed the collection, transport and delivery of a 156Te steel casting from Sheffield Forgemasters International Ltd to the Port of Goole on behalf of international Freight Forwarder, Expeditors.

Operating the STB 550 Tonne Girder Bridge, the largest capacity Girder Bridge in Europe and the latest addition to their fleet, Collett Transport were able to easily accommodate the load and successfully complete delivery of the valuable cargo.

Long standing client, Expeditors, a global logistics company based in Seattle, Washington, have trusted Collett Transport with several valuable cargos, each one executed to perfection. "Our relationship with Expeditors is a valuable asset to Collett. We pride ourselves on our ability to complete all transport and freight forwarding projects quickly and effectively, and our continued work with Expeditors reinforces our expertise within the industry," said Eric Crosby, Projects Director for Collett Transport. "We are delighted to work together with Expeditors on this exciting first transportation employing our new STB 550 Girder Bridge, which is currently unrivalled throughout Europe, and we look forward to many more exciting jobs in the future."

Loaded at Sheffield, the 156 Tonne steel casting was transported under Police escort to the Port of Goole for its onward journey to Antwerp. Showcasing the capabilities of the new Girder Bridge, the first project for Collett's new fleet acquisition, this transportation called upon the Collett Team's expertise and required meticulous planning to ensure the suitability of the route. This included the implementation of a Motorway lane closure for part of the journey, which allowed the whole vehicle combination to travel Eastbound on the Westbound carriageway, in order to avoid weak structures. Under the cover of darkness Collett completed the movement without incident and delivered the cargo safely to the ships side in Goole, the very next day. Providing a full multi-modal logistics solution, the collaboration between the Collett Projects, Heavy Lifting and Marine teams oversaw the heavy crane lifting logistics required to transfer the cargo from the Girder Bridge to the ship and the chartering of the awaiting vessel to make the short sea shipment to Antwerp.

"Having worked with Collett Transport over a number of years on heavy haulage and heavy project moves, we find them to be a very knowledgeable, experienced and professional company," said Nathan Taylor, Ocean Export Manager for Expeditors. "Collett Transport will always rise to the challenge and complete any project efficiently, and with the addition of the newly acquired Girder Bridge, continue to push the boundaries of the heavy transport industry. We hope to continue to develop our working partnership in the future and look forward to working with Collett's again soon."

The full capacity of the Scheuerle STB 550 Girder Bridge is a massive 550 Tonnes and features a 5:2 ratio between payload and deadweight. The acquisition of this flexible modular giant into the Collett fleet demonstrates their place as a market leader within the industry and reinforces their position as one of the leading heavy transport companies both throughout the UK and Worldwide.
