ALE has taken delivery of Goldhofer heavy duty specialized transport equipment for the first time

International heavy and specialized transport specialist ALE Ltd has invested in Goldhofer equipment for the first time.

UK-based Abnormal Load Engineering has 64 axle lines of Goldhofer heavy-duty series THP/SL, one low profile deck, gooseneck and one vessel deck.

The 64 axle lines are modular heavy-duty combinations with a technical axle load of 36 tonnes per line. They can be combined in any order one behind the other or, in parallel, for maximum flexibility. "The great advantage of the THP/SL combination is that these modules can be combined with various accessories ensuring flexible utilisation. There is also the possibility of extending these modules with self-propelled modules of the PST range, without height difference, with mechanical and electronic steering," explained Horst Häfele, Goldhofer heavy duty equipment sales director.

Using the low profile deck and vessel deck allows ALE to keep the transportation height of increasingly large cargo to a minimum. The THP/SL vehicle type is the most common combination system around the world, according to its manufacturer, so ALE can increase capacity by co-operating with other companies without needing to buy additional equipment for special jobs.

"It makes us very glad that such a prestigious specialist like ALE wants to master its future transport challenges with quality products from our company. ALE is one of the leading global transportation companies and thus, of course, an outstanding reference for us as manufacturer," said Stefan Fuchs, Goldhofer CEO, Bavaria, Germany.
